10. ຂ້ອຍເປັນລາວ Koy Ben Lao by Phan Jindavong
A song which is unapologetically Lao (a little needed after that last one), the title means "I Am Lao" and the majority of the lyrics are dedicated to the kinds of foods our people like to eat. Sure there's some other stuff in there about things we do such as dance lumvong and drink lao Lao (rice whiskey) in the evening, but the rest is dedicated to dishes: sticky rice, smoked chilli sauce, grilled chicken, red ant eggs, fried bugs, beef jerky, grasshoppers, pickled anchovies - you get it. We like to eat. As demonstrated by the last lines:
"Up North they eat bread,
but I'm still Lao, I only eat sticky rice"
Sorry not sorry -- I mean, kaw toht baw kaw toht.
