Hey Pit

So I play an open mic usually once a week and usually just pick whatever songs come to mind in the few hours before. But I was hoping to do a kind of themed set. The theme I was going for is songs told from the perspective of something non-human. I need about five but all I have so far is:

They Might be Giants- Birdhouse in Your Soul (from perspective of a nightlight)
The Weakerthans- Plea From a Cat Named Virtute (a cat obviously)

Any others? Or any other good themes you can think of?
It's the perfect time of year somewhere far away from here.

I can't think of anything, although I myself have written a song from the perspective of a dinosaur. Also, kudos on liking The Weakerthans.
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.

Oh man, virtute is one of my favorite songs ever. Well, Virtute Explains Her Departure is my favorite. Play both, back to back!

The Humans Are Dead by Flight of the Concords. Make sure to perfect the binary solo.
TO ALL MY KILLERS AND MY HUNDRED DOLLAR BILLERS...

Well, my first song was Terror Train by Demons & Wizards, but looking at your songs so far, I don't think it would fit very well.

Sheep by Pink Floyd, maybe?
The Spirit of the Radio by Rush, depending on your interpretation.

Jesus was all like "To those about to rock, I salute you." then he grabbed his mighty axe and rocked the Romans out really hard. Of course they were strict classical music so....
