I couldn't find a Clydesdale song. This is a stretch, but "Bydlo" is Polish for "Ox", and its a movement from Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition. The painting the composer illustrated in music was of a oxcart struggling in mud. BTW I guess Pictures At An Exhibition counts as rock since Emerson Lake and Palmer recorded it.

If I ever do a hillclimb video, I'm using this as the soundtrack.

I just realized that for some truly inexplicable reason, I do not have a single The Who song on my iPod.

Outrage!

I'm off to rectify that. brb.

How about The Fat Man, sung by Fats Domino:

They call, they call me the fat man
'Cause I weight two hundred pounds
All the girls they love me
'Cause I know my way around

I've been thinking of something with Clyde in the title.

I remember this song from when I was a child but it doesn't seem to fit.

In tune with the season, how about "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas."


I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door,
that's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too


Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!

That's good, good album as a whole, as a matter of fact.
