I'm looking to put together a playlist of songs that feature tea and tea drinking in them. Anyone have any ideas?

(hi, i'm new. I like traditional chai and just plain black tea, both with milk :) )

To mention a few:

The Beatles: "Lovely Rita" (playful)
Cat Stevens: "Tea for the Tillerman" (ponderous)
The Rolling Stones: "Let it Bleed" (raunchy)
Leonard Cohen: "Suzanne" (wistful)

"Tea for Two" - no idea of the artist or where it came from. Old, though.

#2 - Regarding Leonard Cohen's 'Suzanne', I'm a fanatic about tea but I've always thought oranges go better with strong, black coffee.

Back to the OP - try this -

Then there's this one, which is brilliant:

Tea in the Sahara by the Police was the first thing that popped into my mind.
And then, there's the song with Ed Wynn From Mary Poppins where they're having tea on the ceiling.

I wonder what you'd get if you put "tea" in as a search term in iTunes. Hmmm, I should try that. I don't know if it would limit the string, or whether you'd get things with "team" or "teal" in the title.

"When I Take My Sugar to Tea" (Leon Redbone's version) is a personal favorite.

>8 staffordcastle:: Yes, seems to actually find "tea" correctly.

>3 tardis: I know that Thelonious Monk does a jazz version of 'tea for two.' I don't know if it's the original version or's only lyrics.

It's from a '20s musical, No, no, Nanette, and is by Vincent Youmans (music) and Irving Caesar (lyrics).

Cup of Tea by Soulmate. Soulmate is an Indian blues band, from fitting then that they should have a song about tea.

Just listened to "Another Pot O'Tea" by Emmylou Harris.

>3 tardis:

Dmitri Shostakovich did a version of 'Tea for Two', called 'Tahiti Trot'. It's superb - don't be put off by DS being 20th Century!

>4 alaudacorax:

I've always thought that Cohen's ' ... feeds me tea and oranges that come all the way from China ... ' was a reference to orange pekoe tea, even though this tea has nothing whatever to do with oranges, this being a common misconception.

No Rain by Blind Melon

Has lyrics

All I can do is pour some tea for two, and speak my point of view, but it's not sane.


All I can do is read a book to stay awake, and it rips my life away, but it's a great escape.

Gong's Flying Teapot.

Have a cup of tea, have another one, have a cup of tea
Have a cup of tea, have another one, have a cup of tea
Have a cup of tea, have another one, have a cup of tea...

High in the sky, what do you see ?
Come down to Earth, a cup of tea
Flying saucer, flying teacup
From outer space, Flying Teapot

Does Mary Poppin's "Just a Spoon Full of Sugar Makes the Medicine Go Down" qualify?

Tea aint tea without a spoon full of sugar (even though ironically i never take mine with any sugar) but the spoon has to be there... it just has to has to has to.
