Black coffee! The 10 songs about black coffee on National Coffee Day!

Up until about ten years ago, coffee seemed to have its grip firmly around us. Just take the songs below, for example. You won't find any written in the past decade, which is a little sad, the death of coffee and all. Because no one is going to write a song about the energizing effects of a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte. And energy drinks are no different, as mass-produced Red Bull doesn't have the same gravitas as freshly brewed coffee. That said, this list is the best list about coffee songs you'll find on the Internet, a mix of obscure, popular and one that's downright awful but you should hear it anyway.
