I just thought of a topic that I can’t believe we’ve never discussed before: songs about pets! The only song I can think of that is truly about a pet is the Shaggs classic (and alleged Jon Hunstman fav) “Foot Foot”. Maybe “Me and You and a Dog Named Boo”. So let’s add in songs where pets play a prominent role. I’ll go with these, in order:
“Move It on Over” (whole song)
“Mr. Bojangles” (“the dog up and died, up and died”)
“Stray Cat Strut” (maybe a stray is not technically a pet, I don’t know)
“Born On the Bayou” (“I can still hear that hound dog barking”)
“Devil Woman” (don’t remember the exact lyric but there’s a scary cat)
Update. An all-pet-themed name that tune.
