4. “Ice Cream Man”- Blur (2015)

 

You cannot talk about ice cream without mentioning the man who sells it. “Ice Cream Man” by Blur is from the album “The Magic Whip.” It talks about an ice cream man parked his truck by the street, waiting for his sweet tooth customers to buy. Surprisingly, this song came from the band’s vocalist Damon Albarn’s hard drive. Some claim it’s a reflection of the Chinese government and how they make themselves look important when they aren’t.

3. “Ice”- Sarah McLachlan (1994)

 

“Ice” is a track by Sarah McLachlan that she released in 1994. One of her singles on the album “The Freedom Sessions.” While it talks about ice, there’s a deep meaning. Some music critics insist that it portrays a prostitute’s unwillingness to be intimate, but she has no choice. The second verse talks about the man who slept with the prostitute. We assume he regrets going down that road, but it’s too late for regrets. Whatever the song means, you will love the lyrics and videography. Best line: “The only comfort is the moving of the river.”

2. “Do You Like Ice Cream While Surfin’ on the Sand”- Toca Luna (2020)

 

Kids love ice cream, making it logical for them to sing about it. 2020 was when most countries initiated a stay-at-home restriction due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Toca Luna, an American singer, released an ice cream-related song titled “Do You Like Ice Cream While Surfin’ on the Sand?” The song’s verses are repeated, making it a perfect nursery rhyme to help you relive your childhood memories. Best line: “Do you like ice cream?”

1. “Ice Cream”- Selena Gomez feat. BLACKPINK (2020)

 

There are three reasons we ranked Selena Gomez’s 2020 track, “Ice Cream,” track first. Firstly, it made her a part-owner of an ice cream brand in New York called Serendipity, which has a net worth of $16 million per year. Secondly, she wore a designer dress by HVN Laura, which cost around $495. The dress had mini-ice cream cone buttons, complementing the theme song. Lastly, we love how Gomez has fun with the song and how she marvelously collaborates with BLACKPINK. Best line: “Come a little closer cause you looking thirsty, I’m a make it better, sip it like a Slurpee.”

Verdict

They say, “everybody likes ice cream,” so it’s logical to hear about it in a song. Remember, besides the nursery rhyme ranked second, the rest use ice cream to symbolize various things like money, sex, romance, and many others. So, whether you love rap, R&B, pop, or soul, these songs about ice cream will be worth your time.
