The Animal song

A spontaneous post…was listening to this song and made me wanna write about it….

What is better than a song that uplifts your mood! “The Animal song” by Savage Garden is a feel-good song and musically easy on the ear. Makes you want to free your mind and live as carefree as animals in the jungle. Good to hear when you want to cheer up.

A little history about this wonderful track. It was featured in the movie “The Other Sister”, in fact it was written for it. The video featured snippets from the movie and Darren Hayes walking amidst a jubilant – looking parade. Lyrically, it may appear light but has good deep meanings. It compares the lives of human and animals, with respect to the truthfulness, simplicity, and freedom. Inspires one to lead a simple and worry-free life as animals and get away from the complexities of today’s life.

My favorite lines from the song:

Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie
Which one is more human
There’s a thought, now you decide

Video from Youtube:

And here’s the full lyrics

When superstars and cannonballs are running through your head
And television freak show cops and robbers everywhere
Subway makes me nervous, people pushing me too far
I’ve got to break away
So take my hand now

’Cause I want to live like animals
Careless and free like animals
I want to live, I want to run through the jungle
With wind in my hair and the sand at my feet

I don’t have any difficulties keeping to myself
Feelings and emotions better left up on the shelf
Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie
Which one is more human
There’s a thought, now you decide

Compassion in the jungle
Compassion in your hands, yeah
Would you like to make a run for it
Would you like to take my hand, yeah

’Cause I want to live like animals
Careless and free like animals
I want to live, I want to run through the jungle
With wind in my hair and the sand at my feet

Sometimes this life can get you down
It’s so confusing
There’s so many rules to follow
And I feel it
’Cause I just run away in my mind

Superstars and cannonballs are running through your head
Television freak show cops and robbers everywhere
Animals and children tell the truth, they never lie
Which one is more human
There’s a thought, now you decide

Compassion in the jungle
Compassion in your hands, yeah
Would you like to make a run for it
Would you like to take my hand, yeah
