Happy Pi Day! To celebrate, I'm previewing the songs and drink I'll post later today at Booman Tribune for this week's edition of Midweek Cafe and Lounge #56, a weekly music feature there. In keeping with the last two Pi Days, the songs and drink share a pie theme.
I begin with Madonna's cover of Don McLean's iconic American Pie.
Go get 'em, local girl!
Next, Jay & the Techniques with their 1967 hit Apples Peaches Pumpkin Pie.
That was a fun discovery on YouTube.
The final song on a pie theme is I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) by The Four Tops.
I enjoyed working backwards in time with these songs.
Now for the drink, Flaming Pumpkin Pie Shots from Tipsy Bartender, of course.
Here's the recipe:When I post the Booman Tribune version, which will be modified and expanded, I'll post the link here. In the meantime, Happy Pi Day and Beware The Ides of March!
