I was a big Steve Irwin fan. I'm a big animal nut in the first place, and his over-the-top enthusiasm and reckless-yet-skilled handling of some of the world's most dangerous creatures were always entertaining sights to behold. He was an amazing conservationist and educated people of all ages about endangered and relatively unknown species... his sudden passing is truly a sad event. Plus, who dies by getting stabbed in the fucking heart by a stingray? Only the Crocodile Hunter, man.
So here are some of my favorite tunes with animals (aminals) in the title or ones that I just deemed appropriate. There were a lot to pick from, but these struck my fancy. And don't forget to hug your neighborhood wallaby.

Track 4 from Demon Days
Length: 00:04:31

Track Description:
Besides the song and artist title being completely appropriate, this has a great "tromping through the underbrush" vibe and beat to it. With or without a machete.

An even more fantastic title for the Crocodile Hunter's mix. Tarantulas everywhere are crying little hairy tears because the stingray got him first. On a side note, tarantulas freak my shit out.

Track 9 from Bullfrog
Length: 00:05:32
Year: 2001
Track Description:
This is what Steve and Mrs. Crocodile Hunter listened to when making their two little Croc Hunters. Halfway through the song it goes into a great salsa uptempo that you can't help but wiggle to, just a little.
Technically this is Kid Koala taking on Bullfrog's album, but I'll listen to Amazon this once.

Length: 00:04:48
Year: 2006
Track Description:
I had an obsession with black swans when I was 8. My godmother had several and I always emphasized how enthralled I was with them, hoping she would be inspired by an earnestly awestruck child and give me one. But then again, I did the same thing in toy stores.

Track 14 from Facing Future
Length: 00:05:08

Track Description:
I almost ended this with Louis Armstrong's 'What a Wonderful World' but thought this song fit the mix much better. A fitting end to a tribute to a fantastic man who never curbed his enthusiasm for the creatures of the world and supporting their continued existence. We should all be so happy with our life pursuits.
"And I think to myself, what a wonderful world."
