It's time to create an animal-themed playlist!

We play a lot of music at our office. You'll hear everything from The Smiths to Stevie Wonder coming out of our speakers. Surrounded by both music and animals every day, I've started thinking about my favorite animal songs. It didn't take long to create an animal-themed playlist.

These songs will be the perfect way to start your own animal playlist!

"I Love My Dog" by Cat Stevens
"Monkey Gone To Heaven" by Pixies
"Black Eyed Dog" by Nick Drake
"Paper Tiger" by Spoon
"Dog" by Ben Folds
"Hungry Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran
"Stray Cat Strut" by Stray Cats
"17 Pink Sugar Elephants" cover by Mates of States
"The Wolves (Act 1 & 2)" by Bon Iver
"Stray Dog Freedom" by Bright Eyes
"Portions For Foxes" by Rilo Kiley

But it's not enough to stop here. What are your favorite animal themed/titled songs? Leave a comment so we can build a collaborative playlist full of everyone's favorites!

  1. Oh, so many to choose from! But here are some fun ones:

    "Effervescing Elephants" by Syd Barrett
    "Tiger Tiger" by The Sadies
    "Pounce" by Nellie McKay

  2. This is a little more controversial - but how about "Meat is Murder" by the Smiths (one of my favorites!!) And of course I love "Old King" by Neil Young (about his hound dog) and "Martha My Dear" by the Beatles about his sheep dog. :)

  3. OH and "Nellie the Elephant" by the Toy Dolls

  4. Ooooh, and:

    "Birds You Cannot See" by the Handsome Family
    "Go-Go Kitty" by the New Bangs
    "Diamond Dogs" by David Bowie

  5. I just can't stop!

    "Catnip Dream" by Shonen Knife
    "I Am a Cat" by Shonen Knife
    "The Dog Song" by Nellie McKay
    "Pigeon Song" by Rachel Trachtenburg

  6. The Weakerthans: "Plea From a Cat Named Virtue" - written from the perspective of a cat with a depressed owner. It's priceless.

    "The Eagle" by John Denver
    "Eagles and Horses" by John Denver
