So, Tigers Are Noble isn’t a song, but it makes me laugh every time it comes on to play. I’m listening to Neko Case‘s 2004 live album The Tigers Have Spoken in anticipation and excitement about seeing her live next month.
The whole album is fantastic and there’s a cover of Wayfaring Stranger which I really enjoy alot. It’s really epic with an enjoyable banjo solo and some great group vocals in the chorus.
The Tigers Are Noble speech rounds off the album: ”There’s so many extra children, we could just feed the children, to these tigers. We don’t need them. We’re not doing anything with them. Tigers are, tigers are… NOBLE!” It’s true, they are noble. The most noble of the cats perhaps. Not counting my cat.
