I love cows. They give us cheese. They’re content with hanging out in a field, noshing on green grass. They’re kinda awesome. (Unless they have guns.)
I also love music. Who doesn’t? So when I heard that Gunnar Madsen wrote a song called “Divine Bovine”, I had to dig in. Gunnar’s singing protagonist is a dairy cow, and she gives you a peek at her life down on the farm.
Now, this song (and the entire album it’s on, I Am Your Food) is for kids, but I have to admit I got sucked into this song big time. This is a song folks with little ones won’t want to kill themselves after hearing nineteen zillion times (the average number of times a child wants to listen to a song s/he likes)…in fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if families sang this together in the car. Or in the bath. Or kitchen. Or, best yet, on their next trip to a farm. When in Rome!
“Milk milk, moo moo!” Your earworm for the day. YOU’RE WELCOME Y’ALL. Have a wonderful weekend. And don’t let it bother you. Be like Cow.
[A review of the whole album is coming down the pike over on The Green Man Review. Of course it’ll be cross-posted here. Keep your bananas peeled! #seewhatididthere #okayillstop]
