Which is your favorite Sparks' song in which an animal or animals play a prominent role? It's a tough choice, but I'll go with "Bon Voyage," which also would make my list of saddest/most moving Sparks songs.

I would've chosen Hear No Evil out of these before ECOTD was released, but I really love Let the Monkey Drive a lot so it gets my vote!

my dilema was between the first five songs in the list.
but finally i chose "pulling rabbits", because i remember that it made me say "wow" when i first heard it on "plagiarism".

This is a great poll. While Bon Voyage is one of their all time greatest songs, I just had to go with Mickey Mouse. Just THINKING about Mickey Mouse and how great it is gets me pumped up! If at the moment I was in a more contemplative mood, I may have gone with BV. But Mickey rocks!

I voted for "Bon Voyage". I thinkt its one of Sparks greatest songs and that meens its veryvery GREAT.
I remember hearing and seeing it LIVE at sdra teatern theater in Stockholm,Sweden 2006.GREAT performance of it (I think it made my armhair stand out). I heard the song the first time (Im rather sure it was the first time)about 5 years after the release and that makes 1979.

If you say which song i like the most in this list it's Bon Voyage but...

Animal related i gues i find it a three way tie between, Strange Animal, Pulling Rabbits and Mickey Mouse... chose the latter.

Strangely enough, I don't perceive Strange Animal as an "animal song" (more than, let's say, This Town)... so I (hardly) chose between Angus Desire and Here Kitty...

Yes !! Might be an idea that.. What ever angle you approached if from the music and lyrics lends itself to visuals... Personally I think some old Silent movies Footage could be Employed... Could be a Classic given to a good video producer..
