G'morning! Benham Jonesssssss in for Corny O'Connell today, which also happens to be World Snake Day, established to help people "learn more about these fascinating but misrepresented reptiles and to highlight the vital role they play in the balance of nature."
These misunderstood wigglers are invoked regularly in art and culture, from the Book of Genesis all the way down to Britney Spears' iconic 2001 MTV VMA performance featuring an albino burmese python, so today we are looking for all your favorite songs that namecheck and highlight these scaly dudes.
I'll put together a set to sssspin a little bit past 9 a.m. Thank you!
