A post on the thread about great cover songs reminded me of how all my pets have had a favorite music artist or album they would listen to. In my teens, we had 2 Golden Retrievers. One of them loved the Cowboy Junkies' Trinity Sessions album. She would curl up around the speaker with her eyes closed and ears perked up whenever I played it. Her sister adored my mom's Johnny Mathis Christmas album. Kind of corny, but she was one of those corny, goofball Goldens, so it fit her well. At this time in my life, I have a cat. This Mastermind of Evil can be subdued by playing Air's Moon Safari album. She will fall into a nap, purring with her ears perked up in listening mode. She seems to like electronica in general, but Air is her absolute favorite.
What kind of music soothes your savage (and not so savage) beasts?
