Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2011, #16 – #13

MetalCat“So, Mammal, your true colours are really showing now,” a few of you say, although not in tune with each other. “Four songs today, and all of them are progressive metal. You’re just a hippie in metalhead clothing.”

“Not true!” I protest, in perfect harmony with myself. “I’m a hybrid. It just happens that my favourite songs sorted themselves this way when I was compiling my hit parade.”

Dark Metal Cat adds, “Yeah, and a non-metal creature listening to those four songs consecutively wouldn’t ask if they were all prog metal, it would ask if they’re the same kind of music at all apart from having guitars and drums.”

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
