Most Popular Songs For A Pizzeria Playlist

Here are 10 songs that have been determined to be the best for a pizzeria playlist at any pizza restaurant. With the positive vibes from these songs, customers are sure to be rockin out while enjoying their pizza pie. 


1. Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac

Someone wants meat lovers. Someone wants the vegetarian style, or your little brother may want only cheese. Is mom only eating a salad again? With “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac playing as a family comes to the counter to order, the song can help deduce that everyone wants their own pizza, their own way. This upbeat rock and roll song will bring nostalgia to parents and comfort to adolescents’ plain orders. 


2. We Care A Lot – Faith No More

The owner cares about the business, employees, product, and of course the consumer. The employees care about their paycheck, the product, and the consumer. The consumer cares about how much they are going to spend and how good the pizza is going to be. Everyone cares if there is bad music in the background. “We Care A Lot” by Faith No More is a great rock and roll song that explains how “we care a lot” about numerous things, including starvation, which will not be happening with pizza in front of you. For each individual and each moment through the day this song can be a pizza anthem!


3. Scenes From an Italian Restaurant – Billy Joel

Pizza is Italian. Billy Joel is an American rock icon. The combination is begging to be played while you order that glass of wine for you and your date and dive right into your appetizers. Date nights need good food upfront and good music in the background. This upbeat rock song will also be keeping employees joyful and energetic while working in an Italian Restaurant!


4. Mr. Brightside – The Killers

Alternative rock is the gateway connecting original rock and roll with modern day rock/pop/dance music. Music that all generations of rock music lovers can be behind is crucial when trying to satisfy a large age demographic. The quick up-beat rhythm of this song will keep lines enthusiastic about waiting to order, eaters bouncing in their seats as they take another bite, and everyone else smiling as they move through the slice house. 


5. Tomorrow Never Knows – Beatles

With alternative rock being a popular genre for the 21st century, your playlist must have some Beatles because of their excellence and nostalgia behind original rock music. “Tomorrow Never Knows” by the Beatles starts with  “Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream” and this is exactly how customers should feel as they slip into their seat and take that first bite. This song will help nudge customers into letting go of their worries outside of the slice house and slide right into their delicious slice. 


6. You Are The Best Thing – Nat LaMontagne

Whether someone is thinking about a significant other or about the pizza they just ordered, “You are the best thing” by Nat LaMontagne.

With this song added to your playlist customers are bound to walk out remembering what was the best thing they experienced at Empire Slice House. 


7. The Hardest Button to Button – The White Stripes

The hardest thing to do is deciding which pizza you are going to get when you step up to the counter and you see the ovens cooking behind the cashier. “The Hardest Button to Button” by the White Stripes intense bass beat will give you the confidence in whatever decision is made and the drive for workers to stay diligent. 


8. Cash Rules Everything Around Me – Wu-Tang Clan

“Cash rules everything around me, get the money, dolla dolla bill ya”. This rap song by the Wu-Tang Clan, although against the grain of the rock style playlist, is good for the workers mindset and also fun for people to listen to.
