If you listen to the words of "We Only Come Out at Night" no animals. But, if you watch this most wonderful video, animals galore to this upbeat, ear-wormy, power-poppy song by the Sugar Stems: youtu.be/_k8HbcXE7hw

Since we're sharing sad songs, here's one I sang in my high school vocal ensemble. I love it dearly. It's known as either "Ten Thousand Miles" or "The Turtle Dove."

Addendum: I'm listening to this song on repeat, a tearful mess. As relevant and moving in 2020 as it was in 1957 when Paul Simon wrote it. He was 16 or 17.

Did we do Teddy Bear's Picnic? I think so...but will leave it as a placeholder because I'm too lazy to dump out and scroll through. NO WAIT

I found this gem instead! Welcome to Teddy Bear's Last Ride. I think I'm in love...

Domenico Scarlatti's ((1685 - 1757), "La Fugue du Chat" (Cat's Fugue): youtu.be/ebmMBvuxRkg

The person posting this vid says, " ... Legend has it that Scarlatti had a pet cat called "Pulcinella", who was described by the composer as prone to walking across the keyboard, always curious about its sounds. On one occasion, according to the story, Scarlatti wrote down a phrase from one of these "improvisation sessions", and used it as a lead motif in this fugue."

Arrrgh. I'm boycotting Amazon (redacted: long thing about ICE and facial recognition software). I just saw mention of this doc and will look for it at the local shop. It sounds wonderful - if likely to make me abandon my fam and move to Japan.

Or we could win the lottery and go together to Japan Cat Heaven?

Oh NightGlow, Turkish kedis and you! Silent kedis.

I was just watching the film "Cat Heaven Island" about the Japanese Island of Tashirojima. There, are only 50 or so elderly humans and hundreds of kitties. The island lost a lot after the 2013 earthquake and tsunami.
Amazon says, "Cats - hundreds and hundreds of them - define the quiet island of Tashirojima. They have just a handful of elderly human residents for company, who maintain a life steeped in fading but beautiful Japanese culture. This heart-warming documentary explores how a tight-knit community of ever more wizened pensioners find joy in their unique island identity, and affection from their feline friends."
The documentary is available free on Prime right now. I bet it is available many other places, too.

My dear! Not only have I seen (and loved, and cried at) "Kedi," but I have seen, and loved, and cried with the cats of Turkey!!!

It was the only place I've ever been that was off the continent (unless one counts the Caribbean) and it was an exquisite, soul-enriching journey. Wife and I had to stop so many times for cat communing. Mostly in Istanbul, but throughout the country (like a little remote bus station stop in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere, where I fed a tiny, hungry cat some jerky because I had nothing else, even though I worried about salt content.)

They are lovely, and plentiful, and (mostly) silent - which is haunting and beautiful of itself.

Do you know about Aoshima, Ehime - Japan's Cat Island? I may have to pilgrimage one day...

youtu.be/QdvY8njnTLw

And I think "Felinos de San Juan" totally counts!

Thank you for your considered conversation about my conflicted contribution.

NIGHTGLOW, have you seen the documentary "Kedi"? It is about the street cats of Istanbul. They are urban. They have a relationship with humans so they are not feral. Nor do they belong to anyone. This is a film all about love. And cats. And humans. It is beautifully made. youtu.be/lKq7UqplcL8

It is my most favorite cat film ever.

So many cultural things from the past don't hold up anymore. Racism and sexism are the most obvious and frequent problems. Or the makers of the works are racist and/or sexist. So many things I don't enjoy anymore. But, there are wonderful new cultural works like Kedi which I adore.

Oh heck. Looking at this now, it's totally racist (or at least heavily caricatured negative sterotyping) and pretty anti-cat, besides. But I loved it when I was a little girl. And I was always Team Cat.

Debussy's "Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune." (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun) written in 1894.
A faun is "...a mythological half human–half goat creature appearing in Ancient Rome.
The goat man, more commonly affiliated with the Satyrs of Greek mythology or Fauns of Roman, is a bipedal creature with the legs and tail of a goat and the head, arms and torso of a man and is often depicted with goat's horns and pointed ears...." (Wikipedia)

Nijinsky as the Faun:

Oh! Oh! One of my favorite songs ever!

"White Bird" by It's a Beautiful Day

I think I'm dating myself. :)



Oh, Petalia - I am having so much fun with you and Holly! So glad you giggled at Stray Cats and so glad you're both playing with me!

The Stray Cats video had me laughing aloud- many times! What fun. Singing about all the non-human animals seems to be a worldwide multi-generational pleasure!

I love Sílvia Pérez Cruz's interpretation of the Federico Garca Lorca poem, "Gallo Rojo, Gallo Negro" (Red rooster, black rooster), an allegory of the Spanish Civil War:

"Three Little Birds" by the great Bob Marley

I adore "Lion Sleeps" and only knew the Tokens version! Thank you thank you for Miriam Makeba's! I also love Brazilian Cool and Caetano Veloso but did not know this. Thank you! And bonus for animals in other languages!

I adore Caetano Veloso's version of, "Cucurrucucú Paloma." Paloma means pigeon or dove in Spanish.

"It tells the story of a man whose lover died and is devastated by her absence. He’s so hopeless that he only cries and drinks and the only thing that calms him down is when this little dove (la paloma) comes to his windowsill and coos, leading him to believe that its the spirit of his long lost love." (From some blog or another online)

You've probably heard his version in Almodovar's film, "Hable Con Ella" (Talk to Her) or the movie "Moonlight." This vid has the English translation of the lyrics: youtu.be/LUf1aFdc88U

"Mbube" (Lion) or as we know it, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," sung by Miriam Makeba: youtu.be/U6AAtKmx6Qk

This is a treat. I didn't know that this is a Zulu song that has been sung for centuries in South Africa.
