In the meantime, here’s our Top 5 Dino-related music list:

  1. David Bowie: Scary Monsters

“Scary monsters, super creeps.  Keep me running, running scared.”

Did the legendary rock star David Bowie really have two different coloured eyes?

2. T-Rex: Get It On

“You’ve got the teeth of the hydra upon you.”

In Greek Mythology, a Hydra was a serpent-like monster with many heads. 

3. Queen: Another one bites the dust

“And another one gone, and another one gone.  How long can you stand the heat?”

A best-selling single for Queen. Were they really singing about the demise of the dinosaurs?

4. Beatles: Run for your life

“Better run for your life if you can, ….”

Written by John Lennon in 1965, this song was also recorded by Gary Lewis and the Playboys, and Nancy Sinatra.

5. Liz Lark Brown: Velociraptor

“It’s hard to be a Velociraptor cruising at a singles bar, … “

Written by American composer, writer of music and lyrics, Joe Iconis. Maybe the best recording is by Liz Lark Brown, who performs at 54 Below in Manhattan. 

And if that’s not sufficiently scary? Listen to the Jurassic World Ending Song w/T-Rex roar.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7DdPhDA-0Q
