I'm a fan of the songs from the Waitress musical, the story of a waitress stuck in a dead-end town / job / marriage whose biggest joy is baking pies. When she discovers she is pregnant, she dreams of entering a high-profile pie contest to earn a better life for her child (and also starts an affair with her obstetrician). The songs were written by the marvelous Sara Bareilles.
There's an ongoing refrain that often gets stuck in my brain as an earworm, and it's featured here in the opening song:
(And if you enjoy, just let Youtube carry on: it will flip to the next baking themed song, "What Baking Can Do." Is it any wonder the pastry chef loves this musical?)
I find myself mutter-singing "Sugar butter flour" in the kitchen more often than I care to admit ...
