One of my special favorite bits of trivia that I like to throw out is that I think the 1970s had more songs mentioning spoons than any other decade. I think you can guess why, though perhaps you shouldn't read any further if you can't. Offhand, I can think of at least three:
- Fleetwood Mac - "Gold Dust Woman" ("Take your silver spoon / And dig your grave")
- Billy Joel - "Big Shot" ("You had the Dom Perignon in your hand / And the spoon up your nose")
- Lynyrd Skynyrd - "The Needle and the Spoon" (...kinda self-explanatory, yeah?)
Your challenge - cite other songs mentioning spoons, from any decade.
