Dear GYA, I guess "Cherry Pie" by Warrant counts and there's also The Beatles "Strawberry Fields" and I suppose "Tangerine" by Led Zepplin is solid, but I think the all-time best song about fruit has to be "Peaches" by The Presidents of the United States of America. I think it provides a solid narrative about how much those guys loved peaches. - Paul Gurm, Midvale
Paul, you're dead wrong, buddy. Even though cantaloupes are disgusting, Herbie Hancock's "Cantaloupe Island" is the best fruit song ever. Here's what's going down this weekend:
