10 songs with a coffee aroma
We liked the idea of bringing warmth to heat up these mid-autumn days with a selection of songs dedicated to coffee: the right blend to stay awake even on Monday morning…
Bob Dylan – One more cup of coffee (Desire)
“One more cup of coffee for the road,
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go”

“I walk the floor and watch the door
And in between I drink

“And moody all the morning, moody all night.
And in between I drink black coffee”
Carly Simon – You’re so vain
“I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee”
Blur – Coffee and TV
“Do you feel like a chain-store
One of many zeros…
So give me coffee and TV peacefully”

“… Wild winter, warm coffee
Mind’s gone, do you love me?
Blazing summer, cold coffee
Baby’s gone, do you love me?”

And I just have to look away”

Try not to wonder what the weather will be”
