Retrospace Mix Tape #5: Animal Songs

Sticking with the Animal Songs theme, I thought I'd throw together another mix tape.  As usual, these are all vintage tunes found well off the beaten path.  See below for the track list and download link.  Enjoy!

  2. Hey! All right! It's been awhile since I've won a blog award.... starting to feel like Susan Lucci.

    I think I'll run with this one... be looking for a follow up post. Thanks!

  3. You include Green Monkey by America (the band) but not their most famous song - "A horse with no name"? What gives?

  4. Luis, I think the point was OBSCURE animal songs.
