Locust St. has posted a great collection of songs about coffee (with links you can listen to), as part of an ode to mankind’s favorite balm for the over-indulger.
Songs about coffee generally are not celebratory, but are often quotidian, focusing on simple pleasures. They are hymns of reconciliation, of quiet mornings, of bringing things back to order. Not to say they are celibate–some cap a long night’s affair. Even the louche swinger in Rod Stewart’s “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” apologetically tells his conquest in the last verse that he’s out of milk and coffee.
