In the Mood For… Animal Songs

I’ve been thinking about making a mix tape of good songs about animals. Let’s see…

Wire- I Am the Fly
The Birthday Party- Release the Bats
Patti Smith- Horses
Blurt- The Fish Needs a Bike
Iggy Pop- I Wanna Be Your Dog
Pixies- Caribou
Minutemen- Toadies (Is this song actually about toads?)
The Modern Lovers- Roadrunner
The Cramps- Faster Pussycat
David Bowie- Diamond Dogs
A Certain Ratio- The Fox
DNA- Little Ants
B-52s- Rock Lobster

And, one of my personal favorites, White Mice by Mo-Dettes

I feel like the mix tape should at least get to 20 songs, and I know I must be missing a TON since these are the ones just off the top of my head. C’mon folks… what are some more good songs that reference animals?

    Ted Leo! Under the Hedge! (he’s got a bunch that reference animals, but I like this one “I ran like a rabbit from your rifle”)
