Driving around the other day, a weird and strange thought crossed my mind;

How many UK Chart songs are either
1] about cats, or
2] Have the word 'CAT' or 'CATS' in the title?

I can come up with eight so far:
Tom Jones - What's New, pu55ycat?
Elton John - Honky Cat
Mud - The Cat Crept In
Al Stewart - Year Of the Cat
Jim Chapin(?) - Cat's In the Cradle
The Cure - Love Cats
Squeeze - Cool for Cats
Stray Cats - Stray Cat Strut

Any advance on these?

You know 'pussycat' isn't a swear word right?

I dunno I listen to metal and all forms of rock and stuff. It's not about cats. Jazz and those styles of music is more 'cat' oriented.

Family Force 5 - Put UR Hands Up
There's some sort of big cat roaring in different parts. Probably inspired the Dance RAWR Dance tour

haha thats the first thing that came to mind as soon as i saw someone mention cat scratch fever.

someone should write a metal album for cats in the same fashion that dethklok made an album for fish.
