Songs About Fruit

A few weeks ago, I was brainstorming some ideas for new music posts, and my wife asked if I'd ever done one about songs with fruit in their titles. I replied that of course I had, and that it had gone over quite well. And then I began to second-guess myself. So I looked over my previous music posts and – to my surprise – I was wrong! I had never done a fruit songs post. So here it is. Twenty-five songs, twenty-five different fruits. Every one of them juicy. Enjoy!  ~  JH
