"I like bar-b-q, you like bar-b-q, we like bar-b-q"

Stax Records celebrated it's 50th anniversary this past weekend with a concert at the Orpheum, featuring a lot of the label's alums who're still around, folks like Isaac Hayes, Mavis Staples and Eddie Floyd. I wanted to go pretty bad, but travel weariness, new dogs and projects around the house conspired to keep me at home.

Still, the occasion inspired me to dig through my Stax singles box sets (the first in the series, a nine disc set that runs from 1957-1968, is essential for any soul fan), which brought to the fore Wendy Rene, my favorite teenaged soul singer.

Here's "Bar-B-Q," my favorite Rene track and my favorite song EVER about food. Recorded in 1965, it sounds like the Jackson 5, when the group was but a twinkle in daddy Joe's eye. Bet you won't be able to get it out of your head.

Anyone else have a favorite food song?
