Songs About Taste
There are many great songs that contain the word taste in the title. These songs can be found in all genres, but all have the common theme of tasting. A few examples are “A Taste of Honey” by The Beatles, “Taste the Pain” by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more.
‘Peaches’ by The Presidents of the United States of America
In 1996, The Presidents of the United States of America released the single “Peaches.” It was nominated for a grammy in the category of “Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.” It also reached the Top 8 spot on the Hot Modern Rock charts. The band has since released five albums, and their sound is highly accessible power pop. Lead singer Chris Ballew explained that he wrote “Peaches” about a girl he once had a crush on.
The song is about a girl that he had a crush on, and he wrote it while sitting under a peach tree in his backyard. It’s not about sex or communism, which makes it even more enticing.
‘Peaches’ by Animal Collective
‘Peaches’ by Animal Collective is a pop rock song that envelops the listener with a sense of carefree celebration. The song was recorded last April at a century-old church with the help of producer Scott Colburn, who previously worked with KEXP’s live sound team. It features the group’s core members, who are divided between the East Coast and Portugal. The song is a blend of electronic and acoustic instruments, and even incorporates a few odd samples into the mix.
