Food n Music: Green Onions

Booker T and the MG's - Green Onions

And now for our musical interlude. You’ve likely heard this tune before…but did you know it was called ‘Green Onions’. In 1962 this was the first hit for the classic Booker T & The MG’s. Back then this Bluesy, RnB hit went to #3 in the US hot 100 charts..not too shabby. Maybe everyone could relate to it, not just because of the killer riffs – but because it was named after food. And goodness knows – EVERYONE loves food.

Have a great weekend dears!
