Our Friday series "Seven Sins: The Deadly Medley" continues with a look at how gluttony has inspired songwriters and composers. Music journalist Amanda Petrusich and music critic and food writer Fred Plotkin share songs that show how our darkest desire to consume -- food, among other things -- shapes music. Plus: live music from Christopher Janney and the Persuasions.
