Playlist: Hey There, Tiger

Here’s a playlist comprised exclusively of songs with the word ‘tiger’ in the title! You may think this kind of thing wouldn’t work, but it does. Once I made a playlist dedicated to the word ‘lion’ and was pretty impressed with the results.

The next one will be devoted to bears! Obviously. Box set.

  1. I have made several playlists exclusively from songs about alcohol. Trying to do it without any country songs is a challenge at times, but can be done… although some of the country songs are my favorite.

  2. Aw I love this playlist!

    I remade it on spotify for my own listening purposes, and added in Eno’s “Taking Tiger Mountain”, along with both St. Vincent’s and Sufjan’s “Year of the Tiger” tracks. Perfection.
