For those about to ROCK!

Bloggie friends!

In the time I’ve been blogging – lots of writerly bloggers ask each other what music they listen to when penning their best-sellers.

I thought I’d tackle this from a different angle by filching something I saw in the Guardian newspaper yesterday:

The paper asks:

“What music do your pets like?” (article here)

This follows on from reports that some sharks respond to AC/DC (Angus! Angus! Ahem! Of course you all know the legendary Angus of AC/DC?!?!?!).

You can leave comments under the article nominating what kind of music your pet likes!

The cats with taste like Barbara Streisand and Abba (yay!). LOL!

I’m yet to discover what Charlie likes!

Charlie says: I’m a little bit country, I’m a little bit rock n roll.


Oh it’s the middle of the week and yes this is a very silly post, hoorah! I hope you all discover your furry friends' musical tastes!

AC/DC! Who knew? Hey, if I had pets, they'd have to like progressive rock. They'd also have to tolerate my guitar playing.

Susan Kane said...

Okay, what type of music did Scuba like?? Classical, for sure. He was too elegant and classy for anything else.

Au and Target said...

Target has discovered the phone vibrates so that's his "thing" at the moment.

About Katz Tales! Thanks for asking. We're furry excited about being nominated for the Readers Choice Award. You can buy it from MPH and others online here: http://www.lepak.com/katztalesbook.html

I think I love birdy music more than Human music, Charlie ; )

Guinevere said...

This reminded me of my cat Curry when he was just a kitten... he knocked my clock radio off my nightstand because it was playing rock music! He liked classical music. lol. One of my cats, Patty, loved anything I felt like singing and would always come love on me if I sang (which is amazing, because I'm a little tone deaf!).

Fun post today! :)

lupie said...

Hello Charlie the very handsome!!

We have always thought you are more of a "Lady Gaga" type! :)

We compose our own music. Our mom loves it and she sings along and sometimes she says "Shut Up!"

Love, Lucky & Co.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha ha ha! Maybe you should change Charlie's name to Donny. :-)

fairyhedgehog said...

Rufus would probably like "I'm the King of the Jungle".

Lynda R Young said...

my cat reflects my moods so she also likes the music I like (lol) Well, she doesn't get a choice.

Brigid said...

Charlie has great taste in music!

Ellie Garratt said...

Wow. What a fabulous idea!

Madeleine said...

Ah is Charlie a Donny and Marie fan?
Not sure what my cat's like. Bird song probably ;O)

Margo Benson said...

Our cats have fairly eclectic tastes - rock, classical etc. They like us singing but aren't crazy about live instruments!

Pk Hrezo said...

lol... Charlie's so laid back. Rock on, Charlie... I bet he digs some Beatles and Doors. I can tell he's kinda retro that way. :)

Have a great day!

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol. No idea what my pets like but while watching an episode of the X factor our dog got really irritated by one of the singers and started growling at the screen. Let's just say the guy didn't make the cut on the show either;)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Lucy is a bit of a "rock chick" so rock 'n' roll music for her - she rather likes the Byrds - All I really want to do (is chase birds)!
Hannah says she likes Wild Life by Paul McCartney and Wings.
We are interested to hear what your preference is Charlie.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Talli Roland said...

That's hilarious! I actually did a science project on the different types of music my cat liked, back when I was 13. What can I say, I was ahead of my time... :)

Brian said...

I like all kinds of music and I like to do a happy dance!

Marg said...

None of us have voiced our desires in music. We especially do like to hear the birds singing though. And the noise of the bugs flying around. Hi there Charlie. Hope you have a really fun day.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Beats me what they like! :-P

Sometimes I leave the radio for them, sometimes not, but it's either CBC Radio 1 (current affairs talk) or CBC Radio 2 (a mix of classical and other).

They probably don't even notice...and I'm sure they don't care. LOL.

Manzanita said...

Charlie likes country rock for his blend. Cody doesn't seem to give a rare hoot and a holler what tune is being played. Her talent is singing and she will sing to anything.

Stephen Tremp said...

Our little Yorkie and our canary both like Classical music. Mainly Mozart. And yodeling. Just kidding about the latter.

Bossy Betty said...

My cats seem to like it when I stop talking to them and let them sleep. That is music to their ears.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I have a strong suspicion that pets like the same music their owners do, as they have no choice but to listen to it! lol

My cat Bo listens to opera, rock and roll, classical music and radio talk shows :)

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

The Boys prefer Country Music, and we haven't determined what Shelly likes yet......but she will probably end up being a country fan also......:)

Love to both of you.

notesfromnadir said...

I feel a lot smarter knowing that sharks prefer AC/DC!

My cat liked classical music.

Charlie's not a fan of Abba or Streisand??? Good for him! :)

KarenMcG said...

Old Kitty, you always have the neatest bits of information; hadn't even thought about what our kitties might like to hear.

Love that Charlie likes the country and rock 'n roll...a little bit.

Summer Ross said...

I had never thought about it- how interesting- I'll have to try a few things out! Have a great day!

Lydia K said...

I think he likes more mellow music, based on that picture!

Words A Day said...

I suspect its the sweet music of her dinner plate being filled!

Rahma Krambo said...

Music? That would keep Yoda awake and, like Charlie, he does love his naps. The only sound he responds to is the refrigerator opening.

Thanks for your silliness. I need more of it my life.

ABBY said...

Mom makes us listen to cool jazz...
whatever...

Helllllllooo sweet Charlie.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I think Charlie has good taste. "A little bit country and a little big rock n roll" is a GOOD THING!

My mom loves Barbra Streisand too...she nearly forgot about Abba because that was soooooooo long ago! MOL!

I like "Stray Cat Strut" MOL!
xoxoxo

Elizabeth Mueller said...

How cute! My bird sings to anything he hears. Silly thing. My cat's don't care a sniff and my dog is clueless. :)

Susan Fields said...

I think my dog likes listening to the sound of her own barks. And my kitty likes peace and quiet, like me. :)

Patsy said...

How about Tiger Feet by Mud? Bet Charlie likes that.

Theresa Milstein said...

I thought for sure Charlie would be easy listening. Always relaxing in the sun.

My cat doesn't seem to care about any music one way or another. Since nearly all my music is alternative, I'd say that's what she likes. She's a cool cat.

Tony Benson said...

Sulis likes Simon and Garfunkle and Minerva likes Iron Maiden. For some reason, when Margo and I get our instruments out they both leave the room. Hmmm!

Ann Dziemianowicz said...

So cute! So funny that sharks are calmed by metal music!

I posted this article on my Facebook Careers for Your Cat page and was surprised by what the kitties listen to. Including a Maori radio station.

The Golden Eagle said...

I don't think our cat is really a music kind of cat; maybe a little Beethoven wouldn't be so far off, though. :)

Cheri said...

I guess we think mom plays her music too loud and get upset with her. She prefers to play it in the car. We even run when the phone rings!

My dog Ol' Buddy doesn't care for music, but his favorite movie is Ol' Yeller. He always cries at the end:)

Rosalind Adam said...

My two girls like any music that is NOT generated by me on the piano. I'm mildy offended but at least it shows that my cats are musically discerning!
