Cheesy music

Songs about cheese [MLYT] are a more popular genre than one might expect.

Metafilter's own askmeaboutLOOM is an active contributor to this genre with the Epic Cheese Trilogy, including such deep philosophical pieces as I Like Cheese, Mozzarella (along with Mozzarella: the producer's cut) and The Power of Cheese.

A catchy advertising jingle about cheese from 1968 continues to inspire feelings of nostalgia-tinged patriotism in New Zealanders: if you don't know about the "Boys from down on the farm", you aren't a real kiwi.

Awesome. I was hoping this was going to turn into a thread where everyone lists more cheese songs. How else does one build one's collection?

Cheese is Good. Remove one letter in that sentence and we might just have the answer to Life-The-Universe-Everything.

it's all about goo?

One of my favorites, from the Mighty Boosh: the "Cheese is a Kind of Meat" song.

I Like Stinky Cheese by Two Ton Baker

My good friend Sulmaz scarred my cousin for life when we were all ten years old by singing a song in the car for over an hour which had lyrics that simply consisted of: "Cheese cheese cheese cheese/Cheese cheese cheese cheese/Cheese cheese cheese cheese/Cheese cheese cheese cheese" to the tune of the "Charge" song used in baseball games. My family has spoken of The Cheese Song ever since.

About 15 years later, Sulmaz turned to me out of the blue and said, "Do you know, I don't even *like* cheese?"

That song will, to me, always be the One True Cheese Song.

(Also, I read the band name above as Two Tom Bakers, which gave me an entirely different mental soundscape.)

Tywanna Jo Baskette has a short song called "I love goat cheese." Unfortunately, I'm only finding samples rather than the whole track.
