Favourite Songs With Cat In The Title

Posted in List by newmusicexcess on March 26, 2010


Sitting down to breakfast this morning with my wife, I started up a conversation about favourite songs with cats in the title, as you do. It sort of came about following some late night listening, this week, of Al Stewart’s excellent album Year Of The Cat.

Here is the list, in alphabetical order, that we put together. Notice that the Cure have 2 cat related songs, well what do you expect.

  • All Cats Are Grey – The Cure
  • Cat Claw – The Kills
  • Cat Scratch Fever – Ted Nugent
  • Cool For Cats – Squeeze
  • Hell Cat – Scorpions
  • Look What The Cat Dragged In – Poison
  • Love Cats – The Cure
  • Phenomenal Cat – The Kinks
  • Stray Cat Strut – Stray Cats
  • What’s New Pussycat – Tom Jones
  • Wild Cats 0f Kilkenny – The Pogues
  • Wild Catz – Tygers Of Pan Tang
  • Year Of The Cat – Al Stewart
  • Yellow Cat (Slash) Red Cat – Say Anything


Of course, some of these were released as singles. So lets se what we can find on YouTube with regard to promo videos and performances.

    Great list, you and your wife obviously have a lot to talk about 😉 Seriously though I love Cool For Cats and Cat Scratch Fever, they would be my 2 favourite from the list. I am listening to your YouTube link of Cool For Cats now 🙂
