SongOfTheDay: The Great & The Magnificent – Animal (Tuesday 4th September 2018)

I remember watching The Crocodile Hunter when I was younger, but was too young when Steve Irwin passed away to properly process his impact on not just my childhood, but those of every British millennial. In my teenage years, I loved dark humour. Mock The Week with Frankie Boyle and Family Guy were staples of nighttime TV, and this has since transcended comedy and into my taste of hip-hop. I suppose punchlines are integral to both and I was hooked by The Great & The Magnificent’s Animal for this very reason. That Steve Irwin line is what I consider top-tier lyricism, and so Animal is our SongOfTheDay on the anniversary of The Crocodile Hunter’s death.
