Sunshine of Your Love

I'll be with you darling, soon...
--Cream, Sunshine of Your Love

Earlier tonight, I saw Bob and Justin at the Hookah Lounge. They were talking about how earlier they had been coming up with names of foods that were really references to songs. Below are a few I remember and a few I came up with:

Food:
  • Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Sandwich
  • Paint It Black Bean Burger
  • Yellow Submarine Sandwich
    Which was far too easy to come up with
  • ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Mix
    For the band ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
  • Britney Pickle Spears
  • Sunshine of Your Olive Burger
  • David Bowie-Tie Pasta
  • Cake
    How simple
  • Godspeed You Black Bean Soup
    For the band Godspeed You Black Emperor!
  • Primal Ice Scream
  • Simon and Garbonzo Beans
  • Smashing Pumpkin Pie
  • Black Hole Sunny Side Up
Drinks:
  • Pablo Honey Tea
    Radiohead album
  • Peter, Paul, and Bloody Mary
  • Sex Pistols On The Beach
  • Dead Kennedys
    Which could be pretty much any really alcoholic drink

On the topic of alcoholic drinks, I had something incredibly sweet happen a week ago or so. My girlfriend and I were picking up drinks to go tailgating with (a few pictures here), and I mentioned off-handedly how I was a fan of Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter when we passed it while looking at the beers. I guess I decided not to get it because it seemed kind of silly to get myself a nice beer while going out and tailgating, which is not an activity known for beer-snobbery.

Lo and behold, several days later, when I went over to her house, I opened the 'fridge and what should I see but a pint sitting there. She had remembered, and bought it for me. I love you, Laura.
