Sometimes I wish I posted more music on this site. I like music blogs. I have this idea to start a blog that is only about food. I don’t think I am going to blog about food or post more music… but today I am going to post two songs about my favorite of all foods: Chicken. As you may know, I have a chicken tattoo. And if I was about to be executed my last meal would definatly involve some Popeyes. I just recently was sent a link to a Fats Domino & Doug Kershaw song about my beloved Popeyes and I really wanted to post it for you. It is god damned amazing. I also decided to give you one of my favorite songs ever, which also happens to be about chicken. It is a Cab Calloway song from the 1930′s called A Chicken Aint Nothing But A Bird. It is slightly an anti-chicken song, but great none the less. I got into Cab Calloway when I was about 15 which I think is pretty weird. Most white 15 year old kids from the suburbs are not listening to Harlem Renaissance era big band music, but I was a strange kid. Anyway, check out these two songs and enjoy a photo of the wild chicken who roams my neighborhood in Brooklyn.
