How’s This For a Weird List: Top Songs About Eggs, Chocolate, and Rabbits – Your Easter Rock Playlist
It’s Easter long weekend for most of us, or an EXTRA long weekend for those lucky devils (poor choice of words given the holiday?) who also get Monday off of work. As we all know, Easter is the celebration of the Easter Bunny!, hence us getting chocolates – yeah, I don’t see the connection either. Easter is actually a religious holiday, but rather than make a list of Christian rock songs (a favourite here at PHM), we figured we’d compile a list of songs about eggs, chocolates, and rabbits. If it sounds random, well, that’s Easter for you!
Following in the footsteps of our St. Patrick’s Day drinking playlist, our anti-Valentine’s Day rock song list, and our pro-Valentine’s Day song list, here is our list of Top 10 Songs about Eggs, Chocolate, and Rabbits. We have decided to exclude the following bands: Egg, Death by Chocolate, White Rabbits, Frightened Rabbit and all other bands with eggs, chocolate, and rabbits in their names.
The list is below, and the video from the YouTube playlist is embedded, and you can skip ahead if you don’t like the song (or let it play while you run to get more chocolate) and the next song will show up. Alternatively, you can watch the videos via this link and head over to YouTube, since they don’t have enough web traffic. The top 10 songs are listed below, in no particular order – just like an Easter Egg scavenger hunt!
