The kitchen might not be the go to place when songwriters turn for inspiration but there are a few examples when the place we make our food and drink offers itself as the best choice. For example, the Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin were very keen to leave the kitchen as there was something that they had forgotten to tell us. This was the news that “Sisters are doing it for themselves”. If it was one that had been installed by a Fitted Kitchens Norwich based company they might have wanted to hang around. Click here to see some examples. Here are other kitchen songs.
- Rat in me Kitchen. “What am I gonna do?” asked UB40 in 1986. They opt to feed it, which is not wise. The song was based on a real life incident.
- You will always find me in the Kitchen at parties – Jona Lewie. The new wave post punk boom saw this ode to not being cool enough to join in a party a mild success. The song confirms the singer’s inability to do the washing up.
- Soul Kitchen. At first It’s not clear if the Doors lead singer Jim Morrison is referring directly to a real kitchen or a metaphorical one. It appears that he liked to stay at a soul food restaurant so late that the staff had to kick him out. Hence the line “let me sleep all night in your, Soul Kitchen”.
- Dream Kitchen. One band has taken the whole thing to the extreme. Not only do they sing about inviting a prospective partner back to their house to see the Dream Kitchen they own but the band also named themselves the Kitchens of Distinction to boot.
