Anybody else notice how lots of artists use food to get their point across?

Mariah Carey - Honey
Nicole Reneé - Strawberry
Aqua - Lollipop
Presidents of the USA - Peaches
Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree
Mandy Moore - Candy
Aaron Carter - I Want Candy
Spice Girls - Spice Up Your Life (OK, long shot)

[add songs here]

Also, quite a few people use animals in their song titles (usually as metaphor)...

Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out?
Nelly Furtado - I'm Like A Bird
Mariah Carey - Butterfly
Live - Dolphin's Cry
Little Trees - Help! I'm A Fish
