Feeling a little hungry as you wait out your days at home as the world around you social-distances itself amid the coronavirus pandemic? Ever noticed the thrill one gets when grabbing a bag of popcorn to a movie premiere or munching on some chips to a series marathon? The good ol' "Netflix and chill", for some, is "Netflix and chill, and eat".
Well there surely has to be a similar craving for those who deem music as their entertainment god, and just fancy a satisfying munch fest along with their favorite tunes. So, check out our list of songs that would make you hungry... Yes, exactly that.
The Automatic - 'Interstate'
What better way to start your morning in isolation at home than starting the day with energy, and lots of it. A music video makes a suitable first choice into the playlist and while stuck inside our digital world within the walls of our homes, the imagery of glorious food has to be the first sense to inspire our hunger.
In The Automatic's single 'Interstate', the music video places juicy shots of burgers and sundaes betwixt the uptempo, hard-driven track as the band rocks out.
Welsh post-punk revival band The Automatic had their beginning in early '90s under a different name and the band released their first full-length studio album in 2005 named 'Recover'. The group released numerous hits such as 'Secret Police', 'Gold Digger' and more, but most notably was their 'Monster' single which released in 2006 and made No. 4 in the UK Singles Chart.
Listen to 'Interstate' if you are inclined to energy-filled mornings with some racy hard rock music.
Jack Johnson - 'Banana Pancakes'
In a world that may appear glum to some, why not get a little simplistic with some banana pancakes? American singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has become famously known for his unique take on soft rock and acoustic genres. He has produced hits like 'Good People', 'Upside Down', 'Bubble Toes' and many more. In 'Banana Pancakes', which comes off his 2005 album 'In Between Dreams', Johnson sings, "Well can't you see that it's just raining? Ain't no need to go outside... But, baby, you hardly even notice. When I try to show you this. Song is meant to keep you from doing what you're supposed to".
