SONGS WITH POTATOTUDE

Everyone loves songs about POTATOES! Thanks to David Small for introducing me to the word "potatotude" in his New York Times review of I'M BORED. Do check out the I'M BORED song that my friend Errol Elumir and I wrote and used in our homemade book video.

Thanks also to Emma Dryden, Rand Bellavia, Mark Bernstein, Robin Marwick, Hanna Hauffe, Kelly Cheek, Mitchell Burnside-Clapp, Jo Swartz, Nuria Coe, Annie Teich, Paul Blonsky, Melanie/Melwyk, Cathy Rutland & Tom Jeffers for helping me compile this list of songs featuring potatoes. And if you want to learn how to do the Mashed Potato dance, see this instructional video (thanks to Emma Dryden for the link).
