Tasty Romance

Song 694: This week on the playlist you can hear Yummy Yummy Yummy by Ohio Express, written by Arthur Resnick and Joey Levine, and you can find a YouTube video of it by clicking on the title. Since a holiday arrives this week that people in the U.S. commonly honor with a shared family banquet, it makes sense to have a spicy anthem that celebrates savory nutrition become the song of the week. This appetizing treat came along in the early spring of my junior HS year, and it didn't take long to learn the chorus lines. I hadn't known what to make of it when, the year before, the Fab Four and other British invaders started heading in the psychedelic direction, and so at that time, I appreciated even more the hits of the era that followed the previous styles, including this delicious feast. As silly as it may seem, love can actually taste sweeter than sugar, and thereby, love can satisfy.
