Toothsome Chocolate Emporium's Complete Music Playlist!

Here's something probably only a few of you will find even remotely exciting, but *I* think it's awesome, so HUMOR ME: I've managed to get my mitts on the complete playlist from Toothsome's Chocolate Emporium!


Toothsome's is the new steampunk-themed restaurant and "dessert foundry" here in Orlando, and they play THE best collection of steampunk music I've ever heard. (You might remember how I raved over the music in my photo tour.) It's upbeat and jazzy and just plain fun. John and I've eaten at Toothsome's over half a dozen times now (I know, it's a hard life we lead,) and each time I hear new, fantastic songs, but Shazam hasn't always been able to identify them.

BUT NOW I KNOW ALL THE SONGS. Mwah-ha-haaa!


Before you go imagining an Ocean's 11-style heist, I should probably mention one of the managers very sweetly gave me the entire 3-page print out of their playlist.

Then I went the extra mile, and made a Youtube playlist of nearly every song on the list, IN ORDER. Aw yeah service! Have a chocolate milkshake while you're listening, and you're practically there.

 Sadly there are some songs missing, because 2 of the albums weren't on Youtube. Still, you get 70 songs out of the 87, so not too shabby!

You can start listening here:


If you click over to the whole playlist you can see all the names, artists, and albums. I can tell you now, though: craziest thing on there? Chocobo's Theme from Final Fantasy 3. Ha! Someone had a lot of fun researching and compiling this thing.

For you completionists, here are the missing albums I couldn't find on Youtube: 

Paris Nights, by 615 Music
I love Paris! Classic Gypsy Swing, by Café Chill Lounge Club


And finally, since I wanted them for me anyway, here are the other most heavily used albums from the playlist. Most are compilations, so it's still a wide variety of artists:

(Links to Amazon, where I just discovered you can stream it for free with Amazon Prime. Nice!) 



 
 White Mink, Vol 3 (also free to stream for Prime members!)







I hope this gives you guys some fun new tunes to explore! Now I'm fighting back the urge to throw a steampunk dessert party. :D

  4. Have you heard of Parov Stellar? They also call into the "electro swing" category and I love them. I can't wait to hear the playlist!

  5. If you are thinking of a Steampunk party I highly recommend this book. Lots of fun ideas in it. https://www.amazon.com/Steampunk-Tea-Party-Neo-Victorian-Underwater/dp/1440232954

  7. Yes!!! I just left my first visit to Toothsome an hour ago and immediately began searching where to find the incredible music they were playing there and "TADA!" I find your site, where just TODAY you share all (ok, minus 17 😉) of those amazing songs! I'm elated! This night certainly cannot get any better. Thank you so much for sharing this! I may very well join you in throwing my own dessert party once I get back home from vacation😁

  8. Oh, good, there's at least one song on the list by Tape Five. I was going to recommend them if you like the Electro Swing genre. I would also recommend Caro Emerald. She's amazing!

    Anyway, thank you for the playlist. I look forward to listening to it when I get home from work.

  9. Yes, yes, YES!!!! We just got back from our first family vacation, in which we went to Disney and hubby and I got to do a day at Harry Potter world and Toothsome (which is literally my happy place). We even made Toothsome our last stop for Sunday lunch before going home (N. Alabama). We were asking the servers about the music, but at the time the manager who knew the info wasn't present. You've made my heart so happy with this playlist, and hubby will be super excited with it as well. ��

  10. Tomorrow (Jan. 27) IS National Chocolate Cake Day, if you needed a reason to invite a few friends over on a Friday night to listen to your new play list.

  11. Unfortunately I do get a lot of "This video is not available" (of the first 20 titles only 3 worked). Is that due to right districtions because I am over in Europe? I would consider that highly unfair!!! I also want to hear great Steampunk music while sipping on my hot chocolate! *humpf*

    1. Oh no! Yes, it must be a regional issue, since I get the same thing with a lot of UK videos. :(

  14. Yup, the original video isn't available so I can't even get to the playlist. :( Can you give the "share" link that includes the playlist?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, can we have an Online Steampunk Dessert Party? Everybody gets to create their own Steampunk Dessert and shares the recipe and then we will all get to try new desserts!

  16. This is literally the playlist I've been waiting for all my life. I've been working productively for several hours now with it on. <3

  17. Oh my gosh. These are perfect! I think I have a new writing playlist...

  18. i had never heard of electro swing until last week when my 12 year old son introduced me to it! I'll have to share this with him. Very cool! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Aww snap. I can't even get over to the play list from that video because of being in Canada. Can you post the link to the play list and hopefully I can get some of them going?

  21. No Steampunk Giraffe? But they're my favorite! Guess their style is a little different from electro swing...

    1. I think they're on the one song from The Cog is Dead, since that was a collaboration - but yes, I was sad there wasn't more SPG, too!

  22. OMG! We were at Toothsome's just two weekends ago. It was an expensive lunch with huge servings, but it was worth every penny and minute of waiting. The music was great (I can't believe I didn't think to try to figure out what kind of music it was), and when Ms. Toothsome came around and talked with me about how my 16-year-old daughter's hair "grew" purple and green streaks, we were all in thrall. She was the absolutely most wonderful icing on an amazing experience. Thanks for the music list--I'm definitely downloading it!

  23. This is lovely! I love the Chocobo theme; it brings back a lot of gaming memories!

  24. During dinner I also asked for a list and was only to take pictures of it. So happy you compiled them all and there are links to steam and buy them!

  25. ooooh, I'd love this on spotify...

  26. I have a Pandora station that's heavily influenced by electro swing. One of my favorites is Caravan Palace (I have all three of their albums),which I see is on the Playlist. I'm sure I'll add a bunch of these to my station for even more goodness.

  27. Thanks for this! I already own everything from Abney Park. Looking forward to adding some more steampunky goodness!

  28. I was looking at building this (after your post and off of your list) on Spotify. Are you able to put up the complete list of song since there are 17 missing from the YouTube channel? Or is it just all the songs missing from those two albums?
