Throwback Thursday Part 19

Today is Hippo Day, this is why TT is about animals. 
I had also the premiere of Franz Liszt's symphony Orpheus to celebrate on this day, but I chose hippo.

Here it goes!

First, one of my fav songs. And I really can't explain why I like this song. It's panoramic, for the lack of a better word.
America - A Horse With No Name

Elvis Presley - Hound Dog

Prince - When The Doves Cry

David Bowie - Cat People (Putting out fire). Yeah I know it's technically not about cats, but as long as I hear there "Tyger tyger" by Blake, I don't care.

Sweet - Fox on the Run

Peter Gabriel - Kiss That Frog

Mud - Tiger Feet

Chuck Berry - Too Much Monkey Business

Thrice - The Lion and the Wolf

The B-52's - Rock Lobster.

Pixies - Silver Snail. A beautiful video and hauntingly powerful song.

And of course, the one, the only, the saddest... Stan Borys - Jaskółka uwięziona

Honorable mentions:
New Order - Stray Dog. Iggy Pop recites Bernard's poem. Quite the experience.
Duran Duran - Hungry Like a Wolf. Especially for my Sister >:3
The Beatles - Octopus' Garden.
The Trashmen - Surfin' Bird. Vietnam War real footage. The song was used also in Full Metal Jacket.
Tricky - Puppy Toy.
Herbie Hancock - Chameleon. 
Led Zeppelin - Black Dog.
The Dead Weather - I Cut Like a Buffalo.
Tom Jones - What's New Pussycat.
Bill Haley & Comets - See You Later Alligator.

And that would be all^^
