Friday random ten: Bird on a wire

One last set of animal-related songs. Watch the birdie!

1. Bee Of The Bird Of The Month – They Might Be Giants
2. The Bird – Eddie From Ohio
3. Bird Feathers – Charlie Parker
4. Bird On The Wire – Leonard Cohen
5. Canary Bird – Muddy Waters
6. The Coo Coo Bird – The Be Good Tanyas
7. Fragile Bird – City and Colour
8. Little Bird – The Honeycutters
9. Red Bird – The Hot Club of Cowtown
10. This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds) – Peter Gabriel

Where dog songs were mostly about dogs, and cat songs were mostly about sex, bird songs are a little of each and a little of neither. Sometimes a bird is just a metaphor, I guess.

    No Angry Birds song? No Little Wing?

  2. I have the Stevie Ray Vaughan version of “Little Wing”, but not the Angry Birds song. I admit, that’s a hole in my collection.

    Oh well, we all have those.
