Though it could also be a term for Romney’s campaign, this weekend’s theme of “At the Zoo” is for songs about animals of all kinds…except political animals, we see far too much of them and their “droppings”.

So whether you were a fan of The Monkees, The Animals or The Boomtown Rats, songs by groups named after animals or about animals are welcome to join this weekend’s musical menagerie.

At The Zoo – Simon and Garfunkle

Bungle in the Jungle – Jethro Tull

Monkey Man – Rolling Stones

Sheep – Pink Floyd

A Horse With No Name – America

Free As A Bird – The Beatles
