The other day George commented that their rescue pigeon Walter was nodding along to This Flight Tonight on my recent post on the death of Dan McCafferty. I think that Dan would approve.
This got me looking to see if I had any pigeon songs out there and it turns out that I do.
I have two versions of Clay Pigeons, one by John Prine and the other by Blaze Foley. Mr Prine has appeared here several times before so I'm going for Mr Foley. He is making his debut on these pages albeit Lucinda William's tribute to him Drunken Angel has had an airing.
Pigeons by Bill Callahan is as bonkers as any other Bill Callahan song and is taken from his Gold Record album.
Everything But the Girl are complaining about Pigeons in the Attic Room which is better than bats I suppose.
Finally we have the band Lieutenant Pigeon with a song that surely need no introduction.
Which ones will Walter be nodding along to?
