A bunch of songs about dinosaurs
« on: 03 Jul 2007, 23:44 »

I want to make a mixtape (yes, it's for a girl) of songs about dinosaurs. Trouble is, I've been racking my brains and I can only come up with a couple:

Low - "Dinosaur Act"
Scout Niblett - "Dinosaur Egg"

I guess I could also put some Dinosaur Jr on there, but that's still only three songs!

Help me, forums! Also, please nobody say "Everybody Walk The Dinosaur", because the music has to be stuff that's actually good and that she would like to listen to. So probably no metal songs about demon witches slaying foul armies of hell-dinosaurs either. Sorry.

I really need more dinosaur songs. Hopefully this thread will solve that!

Would you count King Ghidorah as a dinosaur? If so, the song 'Monster Zero' by King Geedorah is a song made completely from Godzilla films.

So um..there you go!

The only two songs I can think of that you haven't already mentioned are 'Nicholas Prefers Dinosaurs' by Ghosts and Vodka or 'Dinosaur Costellations 1-3' by JOA.

Those are both mainly instrumental.

The Modern Things by Bjork is about dinosaurs.  Well, it's about technology waiting in a mountain being annoyed by dinosaurs while it's waiting for its time to come out.  But it mentions dinosaurs.

There's an old Janis Joplin song where she sings about being a pterodactyl among other things.  It's called Caterpillar

I'm a Little Dinosaur by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers is a great (albeit rather short) song that should certainly be on that tape.

Mastodon's "Ol'e Nessie", considering that it's supposed to be a plesiosaur it stills counts.. however I don't know if yer g/f is going to appreciate the sonic erm.. loudness.. of the track hehe

The great dinosaurs and fifties section by Bear vs Shark

how much of it is about dinosaurs is up to your interpretation, my theory is that a dinosaur fell into a coma, and lived in a strange world before waking up and deciding to kill himself to return.

of course I haven't read the book yet.

(seriously though, good song)

The singer of the Get Up Kids has a group called the Terrible Twos who have an overly cutesy song about dinosaurs, "We Can All Get Along With Dinosaurs".

There's also a Raffi song called "If I Had a Dinosaur".  I don't have digital recordings of either, but I'm sure they could be hunted down.

Also, Brontosaurus is a way cooler name than Apatosaurus.  It's a shame that no such animal as Brontosaurus ever existed.

If she doesn't mind Japanese lyrics, I'd reccomend 'Last Dinosaur' by The Pillows.  You can get it off the FLCL soundtrack, if you're into anime.

A few more that I can think of that are good -

Matthew Sweet - 'Dinosaur Act' (Not the Low song of the same name, very nice melodic rocker)
Link Wray - 'Dinosaur' (superb instrumental)
The Stingrays - 'Dinosaurs' (insane surf/rockabilly hybrid)

Not as good but still okay -

Family Fodder - 'Dinosaur Sex' (9 minute freakout)
King Crimson - 'Dinosaur' (decent rocker with nice guitar courtesy of Fripp/Belew)
David Byrne - 'Dinosaur' (from 'The Catherine Wheel', bizarre percussive instrumental)
Hank Williams Jr - 'Dinosaur' (MOR country, not great)

The Velocirappers (white rap crew. yeeeah)


i don't how they both ended up being dinosaur puns but i'm glad they did.

Don't ask me how I know this, but Five Iron Frenzy has a song call Kingdom of the Dinosaurs.  I think it's kind of stupid, and probably a hidden track and not a real song, but oh well.

I wish you could find the song Pterodactyl by a guy named Mike Hosty, but he's local and I don't think that's made it onto any of his discs yet.

Lyrics

(Spoken) In the kingdom of the dinosaurs
Mighty lizards ruled the sky
They were called....Pterodactyl

(Sung) LIZARD OF THE SKYYYYYYYY
LIZARD OF THE SKYYYYYYY
THE MOTHERFUCKIN SKYYYYYYYY
