“Panini” from the album 7, released in 2019
Stranger than “Old Town Road,” the one Lil Nas X song everyone knows, “Panini” isn’t about a sandwich. This silly little song is, in fact, a direct reference to a character from the classic Cartoon Network show Chowder. For me, that’s enough to make it a keeper. But I also like Lil Nas X’s unapologetic weirdness in everything he does.
It’s other words, “Panini” is easy to listen to. And every time it pops up on my playlist I am reminded of a funny little pink rabbit named after a sandwich. That’s fun. That’s weird.
I like weird stuff, especially weird stuff that sneaks into the zeitgeist like literally everything Lil Nas X does.
