10 to Spin | Animal Parts - 10 Best Animal Songs

[Editor's Note - The below text is written by Joshua Cockerill, a.k.a Animal Parts, who will be playing a show for SIC on October 20th at Local 506 in Chapel Hill, NC. Now cautiously...I hear footsteps...]

Be quiet and listen. There is a gorilla in the mangroves. I've laid out a trail of pogo sticks (four minutes on each side if using a microwave) to lure him into my corner chair - among the rest of my speaking menagerie. So far, he has shown as unsure of me as I only thought I could be. Next step, I'll play him my favorite collection of animal related sing songs. Calling on his inner human with my inner animal.

Call me a cockeyed optimist if you need, this is the sound of my plan.
