"Something About a Pasty"

After walking up Sugarloaf Mountain to enjoy the sunset, I had built up an appetite. Where else to go for dinner than to Jean Kay’s for a pasty. Before feasting, I thought to myself, “Why not make a hyperlapse video of this?” The entire pasty took 11 minutes and 37 seconds to eat, or about 37 seconds in hyperlapse mode.

When I got home I realized it needed some music and began some research. I found this amazing song titled “Something About a Pasty” by Brenda Wootton. Brenda was a Cornish poet, folk singer and an ambassador of the Cornish culture. Our favorite album would have to be Pasties & Cream.

The song couldn’t fit any better. You can buy the song online. At the Headquarters of Steez, it has essentially been on repeat for the last 24 hours.

Something About a Pasty by Brenda Wootton

Oh there’s something about a pasty
There’s something about a pasty
There’s something about a pasty that is fine fine fine

It may be the way you make it
It may be the way you bake it
It may be the way you hang it on the line line line

You can keep your fancy dishes
My one and only wish is
To see them pasties marching out in line line line

When you taste that ‘ansome crust
You could eat until you bust
There’s something about a pasty that is fine fine fine!
