References to food abound in Cole Porter’s faux-ironic hymn to the mysterious You. The pictures he paints are irresistible – who else would dare rhyme Mahatma Gandhi with Napoleon Brandy? And how delighted You’d be to be likened to a turkey dinner and, variously, Ovaltine, a hot tamale, Camembert, and broccoli. Best of all, he says that as well as being a Berlin ballad, You’re a Waldorf salad. In my songbook, you’d be one that’s gently warm with nutmeg and allspice – because you’re beyond price.
