Songs associated with animals or sung by "animal groups?"

OK so here's what I'm looking for...

I'm working on a project where i need to compile some songs that are popular that either have an animal in the title...

ex:
Monkey- George Michael
When Doves Cry- Prince

or...are sung by a group with an animal in the title...

ex:
The Monkees
The Penguins

etc.

Any help?

Too many bands to name.

Here's some: The Bees, The Wrens, Andrew Bird, Black-Eyed Snakes, Bunnygrunt, Cardinal, Cat Power, The Crabs, Cub, Doleful Lions, Eels, Mountain Goats, Owls (at least 2 bands with this name), Pedro the Lion, SF Seals, That Dog, Tiger Trap, Tiger Saw, Tiger Lou, Wolf Parade, Wolf Eyes, Wolf Colonel, Unbunny.


But seriously, name an animal and there's probably been a band or 5 named after it.
