This weekend’s music thread is a tribute to all of our wonderful and loving pets and all other animals we live together with on this planet.

Calling someone an “animal” is seen as an insult but there are some animals that are far better people than many human beings out there.

The songs you choose could be about pets, animals or could just be songs that express how you feel about that special furry or feathery family member of yours.

These first three songs go out to my best friend and her ever-wagging tail:

You’re My Best Friend – Queen

Seamus – Pink Floyd

Old King – Neil Young

Apeman – The Kinks

Bungle in the Jungle – Jethro Tull

Stray Cat Strut – The Stray Cats

Send your pet a little love or play a little music to soothe the savage beasts.

  8. Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
    In what distant deeps or skies
    Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
    On what wings dare he aspire?
    What the hand dare sieze the fire?
    And what shoulder, & what art.
    Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
    And when thy heart began to beat,
    What dread hand? & what dread feet?
    What the hammer? what the chain?
    In what furnace was thy brain?
    What the anvil? what dread grasp
    Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
    When the stars threw down their spears,
    And watered heaven with their tears,
    Did he smile his work to see?
    Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
    Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

    1794 William Blake

  9. Jethro Tull--Heavy Horses;

    I’ll only miss her when I think of her-Frank Sinatra (Dedicated to all who have loved and lost).

    • AdLib says:

      A beautiful song and sentiment, Kalima, such a great pick. May I offer another selection dedicated to all the wonderful furry family members who have passed on, always too soon:

      There Will Never Be Another You -- Nat King Cole

      • Kalima says:

        It was for a very special friend, I think that you know him, and I love the Nat King Cole song. He is a favourite of my father’s and was my mother’s too. Heard him all the time on American Forces Radio in Germany. Beautiful song for a beautiful girl.

        Your words reminded me of this.

      Kalima, So thankful for this. We lost our dogs and cat at the same time our kids moved out of state/country. Not how I envisioned “empty nesting”. Every moment is worth remembering

      • Kalima says:

        My pleasure foodchain. We lost our last remaining Aby last October, I miss her more as each day passes, it was just too sudden. Still have many that need me, and I love them all, grateful for what each one bring to our lives.

        Now you have a new puppy, I’m sure you will treasure every moment spent with him/her, they fill the empty spaces in our hearts with such caring and love, that we almost feel whole again.
