How Many of These Pie Songs Do You Know?
Sweetest Pie - Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa
The smash hit Sweetest Pie is in good company when it comes to songs whose lyrics mention pie, both as sexual innuendo, terms of endearment, and... well... Pie.
How may of the "Pie" songs below do you know?
Cherry Pie - Warrant
People sang along to the Warrant lyrics, "She's my Cherry Pie! Cool drink of water, such a sweet surprise," like we were all in on the same dirty joke.
Catchy as hell, the song's profile was bolstered by a steamy video featuring model and actress Bobbie Brown. "Tastes so good makes a grown man cry, Sweet Cherry Pie." Indeed.
I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)
This feel-good Motown classic was one of the biggest hits of the 60s and its infectious melody finds it's way into the hearts of new listeners every generation. How can you NOT sing along when you hear Four Tops front man Levi Stubbs croon, "Sugar pie, honey bunch, you know that I love you! I can't help myself."
American Pie - Don McLean
Maybe the longest song ever play on the radio (the song didn't even fit on one side of a 45 RPM record single), Don McLean's tribute to Buddy Holly and the end of an era keeps listeners guessing what the lyrics mean, but try not to sing along when he repeats the chorus, "So bye-bye, Miss American Pie, drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry. And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye, singin' "This'll be the day that I die." American Pie is a classic, wrapped in the fabric of our culture.
Sweet Potato Pie - Domino
"It's like this, I'm that guy, you're so fly. Gotta get a piece of that sweet potato pie."
Peaking at #27 on the Billboard charts in 1994, rapper Domino's Sweet Potato Pie could give Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion a run for their money when it comes to raunchy lyrics.
These are the most popular songs about Pie, based on radio airplay, but there are more out there. Paul McCartney has revisited the subject many times, from the Beatles' "Wild Honey Pie" to his solo offering, "Flaming Pie." So, if you are now as obsessed as he is, Google yourself some more pie songs! Me? I want the real deal. Maybe some famous Washington Apple pie. With whipped cream. Am I drooling?
