List RulesSongs with animal in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about animals as a subject.

It's not uncommon to find an animal song in the discography of your favorite musician. Dave Matthews has "Proudest Monkey," The Beatles have "Blackbird," and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have "Slow Cheetah." Some of these songs might be about pets, but most are about animals in general. This is a ranked list of all the best songs about animals, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "animal" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about animals as a subject or theme.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the animals songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
