Popular music has always featured animals, way back to the days of iconic blues-men like Leadbelly who rhapsodized about farmyard creatures. Paul McCartney also revealed a baffling interest in Mary’s little lamb and some have made their love abundantly clear. Here is a list of re-imagined songs from Bryan Adams to King Crimson that demonstrates the inherent love between peeps and animals. Another music playlist is unlikely to plunge to such silly depths again.
The Beatles: Love Me Ewe
Boston: More Than A Sheep
Simon and Garfunkel: Baa Baa Love
Prince: I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Mare
Bryan Adams: Run To Ewe
Foreigner: I Want To Know How Much A Goat Is
Leadbelly: Rock Island Line (features references to goats, cows, horses, and WHOLE LIVESTOCK!)
King Crimson: 21st Century Schizoid Cat
10cc: I’m Not In Love (With A Porpoise)
The Velvet Underground: I’m Sticking with Ewe
N.W.A: Straight Outta Bristol Zoo
Bay City Rollers: Baa Baa Baby
