THE MONDAY LIST #2: The Top 10 Animal Related Song Titles

I was having a random conversation over the weekend with a friend about the band Miike Snow and their song “Animal” and it kinda inspired me to make a list about animals and their involvement in music. Whether it be in song titles, band names or lyrics.

And i just came up with a list of Animal Related Song Titles from bands that i like. Feel free to download the songs. (remember to have patience when downloading and check the instructions on how to do it correctly!)

There’s certainly a “wolf” tone in the list but it’s not intentional, just ironic i suppose. If you can think of anymore please feel free to leave your suggestions.

MP3’s
1. Miike Snow – Animal
2. IAMX – Bring Me Back A Dog
3. Bon Iver – The Wolves (Act I and II)
4. Nine Inch Nails – March Of The Pigs
5. The Kills – Cat Claw
6. TV On The Radio – Wolf Like Me
7. Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – Chicken
8. The Cure – The Lovecats
9. Pendulum – Tarantula
10. Spinnerette – All Babes Are Wolves

Cat Power had decided to take her show a little too far

Next Monday i’m going to put up a top ten list of animal related bands. Example:- Eagles Of Death Metal. 

To finish the post i thought i’d put up a video that puts a different spin on the now famous Cadburys advert featuring a Gorilla and the Phil Collins (*shivers*) song “In The Air Tonight”. I personally hated the advert but i like this version.

Them Crooked Vultures

Them Crooked Vultures T-ShirtThere were rumours in the early part of 2009 that Josh Homme and Dave Grohl had got together with John Paul Jones (of Led Zep fame) to create some unearthly sounds together. In fact, talk of the trio jamming together goes as far back as 2005 but it was only in July this year that it was revealed that the guys had been recording together in a studio in LA.  How they came up with the name “Them Crooked Vultures” i will never know but it certainly sounds fitting. With Homme on guitar and vocals, Jones on bass and Grohl on drums the recordings surely promise to be something very special indeed. All 3 have tasted success with their own bands in the past and Them Crooked Vultures will surely carry on that success rate.

The group performed their first show in Illnois on August 9th and have a show in Amsterdam lined up this Wednesday (August 19) night. Alain Johannes (Eleven, Mark Lanegan Band, QOTSA, Spinnerette) appeared on stage as a second guitarist at the Illnois gig and is likely to help out again at the Dutch show.

The set list for the Illnois gig was:-

Elephants
New Fangs
Scumbag Blues
Dead End Friends
Bandoliers
Mind Eraser
Gunman
Daffodils
Interlude w/Ludes
Caligulove
Warsaw
Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I

On August 12 the band released an official video on YouTube. It was a 14 second preview clip of the song “Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I”. See what you think for yourself.

There are also a few live video excerpts from the Illnois show on YouTube. The one below is the best quality i could find. I honsetly don’t know which tracks are which in the videos yet but apparently this one is a section of the track “Caligulove”. Enjoy.

The band are keeping their cards close to their chests and haven’t posted any music online yet. There is however a brand new t-shirt (pictured at the top of this post) available on their official website.

Anybody who knows me will know that i hold Josh Homme in high regard so i have massive hopes for this new project. And so the waiting begins….
