As always, from The Mistress
Top 5 Songs about pets or animals that you keep as pets
1. They’re Coming To Take Me Away Ha Ha! – Napoleon XIV
And who could forget this romping little ditty from the 60’s that caused such a furor? I still have the 45. (For you youngsters a 45 is…well…think of an EP with only one edited song on it on one side and another intolerable throw-away song on the other side that often turned out to be the better of the two) I hear the album is worth quite a pretty penny.
2. Shannon – Henry Gross
A one hit wonder from the 70’s with a great hook
3. Chestnut Mare – The Byrds
Another good story song with a great hook.
4. Gutter Cat vs. The Jets – Alice Cooper
A great song that includes a cover of “The Jet Song” from West Side Story. Everyone else was playing ‘School’s Out’ over and over…I listened to the rest of the album. “Remember the Coop, huh?”
5. Cat Scratch Fever – Ted Nugent
Great Ted. Not too obvious…..
(anyone who does this and includes “Mandy” will report directly to me for detention and re-education)
