kidsmoke Posted February 4, 2021 Share Posted February 4, 2021 I've been thinking lately about the primal passions that drive my favorite songs...surprisingly, it's not entirely lust! For example, how often does simple hunger drive a yearning lyric? Anyway it's my theory that Jeff was hungry like the wolf during the recording of " Love is the King". So we get delicious lyrics like: "Oh, tomatoes right off the vine We used to eat them like that All the time" And, "A pie left out that you can't consume So sweet, You cannot eat.." And, "Sun coming up, like a piece of toast" I don't know about you but now I'm hungry for pie and toast with tomatoes. Are there other Wilco or Jeff songs with food imagery to them? I'm sure there must be! (Is Jeff more prolific when he's hungry? Enquiring minds...) Or do you have a good food-related Wilco story? We'd love to hear it! Quote Link to post Share on other sites
