Post some songs about animals.

I've listened to these two songs about every week for the past year because they remind me of my cat that died in December.

Yma Sumac – Chuncho (The Forest Creatures)
• 1958 recording: https://youtube.com/watch?v=1KprLT-JxPY
• 1960 live performance in Moscow: https://youtube.com/watch?v=cHCro9NYccs
>not so much about animals as it is Yma using her impressive and, frankly, unparalleled vocal talents to create a melodic soundscape of the various animals one might find in an Andean forest, transitioning from the lowest pitch grumbles to the highest whistle registers of birdsong with ease
>I legit get emotional at this song and I don't know why

The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band of The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour have a song that's basically a "fuck you, I'm better" to the song Old McDonald titled Jollity Farm:

Not really songs per say but Paleowolf has two separate albums themed around different prehistoric animals, Megafauna Rituals and Cenozoic. The former focused on Pleistocene animals and the latter for the rest of Cenozoic Era. Examples from each:

There's also soundtracks for different animals from nature documentaries and other media centered around animals.

Mediæval Bæbes – The Snake
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOPyRO1r3zE

Music put to the Archpriest of Hita, Juan Ruiz's, retelling of sorts of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Snake_and_the_Farmer, performed in the original medieval Spanish. In Ruiz' version, the farmer finds a snake "in the month of January," and, feeling pity, brings it inside to warm by the fire to a less than happy outcome. Much like the story of the scorpion and the frog, as the farmer lay dying from the venom, he asks why, especially since the fire, intended will now go out and the snake will surely die.
The snake replies "bitch, I'm a motherfucking snake."

There's one pet I like to pet
And every evening we get set
I stroke it every chance I get
It's my girl's pussy

Seldom plays and never purrs
And I love the thoughts it stirs
But I don't mind because it's hers
My girl's pussy

Often it goes out at night
Returns at break of dawn
No matter what the weather's like
It's always nice and warm

It's never dirty, always clean
In giving thrills, never mean
But it's the best I've ever seen
Is my girl's pussy

...

There's one pet I like to pet

I stroke it every chance I get

Seldom plays, never purrs
And I love the thoughts it stirs
But I don't mind because it's hers
It's my girl's pussy

Though often it goes out at night
And returns at break of dawn, break of dawn
No matter what the weather's like
It's always dry and warm

I bring tid-bits that it loves
We spoon like two turtle doves
I take care to remove my gloves
When stroking my girl's pussy

Red House Painters - Wop-A-Din-Din
https://youtu.be/nOV0l1TemGc

She's got big green eyes
And a long Egyptian face
She moves across the floor
At her own pace
When I'm here in bed
She'll jump up on my chest
And when we lock eyes there's so much love
I wanna cry
She comes in near
When I scratch under her ear
And she lifts her head
When I kiss around her neck
Won't go to sleep
When she falls along my side
And two green eyes fade
To a porcelain marble white
And somehow when I sleep
She'll end up at my feet
And if I roll and kick her out
I might knock her to the ground
But she'll come back anyhow

The trout
In a bright little stream
Shooting past in carefree haste
Was a capricious trout,
Going off like an arrow:
I stood by the edge of the water
And in sweet peace I watched
The lively little fish as it bathed
In the clear little stream.

A fisherman with his rod
Was standing on the bank, though,
And cold bloodedly he watched
As the little fish twisted.
So long as the bright water
Is not disturbed, I thought,
He won’t be able to catch the trout
With his fishing rod.

But in the end the thief felt
That it was taking too long; he made
The little stream treacherously cloudy:
Before I realised it,
His rod started twitching;
The little fish wriggled about on it;
And I, with my blood boiling,
Watched on as she was tricked.

Those of you who are still near the source
Of confident youth, waiting there,
Remember that trout;
When you see danger, then hurry away!
The main danger for you is a lack
Of wisdom; Girls, look out for
Seducers with their rods –
Otherwise it will be too late and you will bleed.

As a bonus, a version of Björk's Hyperballad performed with a string quartet where they manage to make the violin (or is the viola? I can't quite tell) sound like birdsong at one point, which is nice.

Oh, what the hell, here's the OG version, too, along with its music video:
https://youtube.com/watch?v=4x1icKp4MNc
It is, by far, the happiest-sounding song about dealing with trauma and suicidal ideation ever made.
>I follow with my eyes as they crash. I imagine what my body would sound like slamming against those rocks and when it lands, will my eyes be closed or open?

idk if dude's name is Snail or if the song is about snails or what. I don't speak Cambodian. But the idea that this MIGHT be a song about animals performed by a Cambodian guy to the melody of Play That Funky Music [White Boy] with a distinctly really 90s club sound butt in the mud 00s means I had to share it once I rediscovered it after 16 years:

Got a real treat for you guys:

The Carnival of the Animals (Le Carnaval des animaux), by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns

https://youtu.be/GWANMzwff3c
>Each of the 14 movements is timestamped in the description so you can skip ahead and play any of them easily

You may recognize a few of the pieces; "Fossils", "The Swan", possibly "Kangaroos". Most people have heard "Aquarium" not knowing what it was - it's been used in a number of movies.

English translation:
I knew him as a foal
Galloping in the meadow
I knew him as a foal
Galloping in the meadow

And I named him El Tordillo, Tordillo
Because his hair was like that, really.
And I educated him as a child
Nothing more for the trenches

When I saw that it was time
I bought him his good chair
When I saw that it was time
I bought him his good chair

My 30-30 cartridge belt and pistol
And my Tordillo said, said
The ball has already come to us
And we go with Pancho Villa

My Tordillo was understood
And I wouldn't change it for anything
My Tordillo was understood
And I wouldn't change it for anything

When we saw ourselves lost, lost
By Obregón in Celaya, in Celaya
I just make a neigh
And we went to Chihuahua

He showed me to be a friend
Near Torreón, Coahuila
He showed me to be a friend
Near Torreón, Coahuila

Despite being badly injured, El Tordillo
He'll take me to Cerranía right away
Getting me out of danger
But giving his life for me

time has passed
Nothing remains of Tordillo
time has passed
Nothing remains of Tordillo

To his nobility I sigh and sigh
Remembering what he was like and who he was
It seems that I look at it
galloping through the meadow

I only asked because the missus is from Trinidad and she's not bothered by it at all. In fact, we used to play and sing it to our son when he was a baby (we chose a bunch of kid-friendly songs that aren't necessarily kids' sings because we just couldn't go through years of Baby Shark on repeat). I once told her it doesn't matter if she's not insulted because I'm sure there will be plenty of white girls happy to be offended on her behalf.

>In February 1954, in arguably his most bizarre experiment, Vladimir Demikhov transplanted a dog's head onto another dog, using vascular connections to the host dog's heart. Ignoring the condemnation from his critics, he continued with this particular line of experimentation, becoming more successful with time.[1] His transplantation work was widely reported inside the Soviet Union, where it was continuously criticized for being unethical, but it was not until the late 1950s that news of his experiments spread to the outside world.[1] In fact, by the time American surgeons became aware of Demikhov's dog head transplantations in 1959, he had already been performing these procedures for five years.[6]

Lyric video for the governor of California's cousin (and Andy Samberg's wife) Joanna Newsom – Monkey & Bear

https://youtube.com/watch?v=q9rQCvIk6zU

What starts off as a love story between a monkey and a bear and their escape from a cruel farmer's control quickly becomes an abusive relationship where the monkey exploits the bear himself as an organ grinder to her dancing.
The story ends with the bear setting herself into a seaside cave at high tide to drown, and as she becomes submerged, she somehow sheds herself of herself, becoming the constellation Ursa Major.
Jo has a lot of animal-themed songs and lyrics rife with animal imagery. Her combination of traditional chamber music with folk music is no surprise when you consider her background as a classically trained harpist. Her lyrical work is absolutely genius, too.

And the mark of a true musician, imo, is that she sounds exactly the same live as she does on her recordings.
