A friend sent me this link on my birthday. It’s simply called “The Dinosaur Song”. It made me giggle and gets stuck in my head:
I, in turn, also shared this link with someone in the palaeontological community in an effort to cheer him up. He responded by sending me a link to a...music video of such exquisite insanity/profanity that I can’t share it here, but it involved dinosaurs, lasers, robots, sharks and aliens :o And it made me laugh a lot

Most of the songs I could share here would probably get me banned, but I do admittedly like the WWD soundtrack, with the pieces I'm particularly fond of being the 'Cruel Sea' soundtrack, admittedly because that's the episode I watched the most as a young kid (I've hidden the videos under spoiler tags to prevent them being a nuisance to anyone browsing):

And, since I forgot to post it in the Happy Birthday Thread, this classic:


Spoiler: ShowHide


"...And their testimony described giant feather covered monsters that devoured people whole.”

Power Metal from Australia. This Record is from 2005. Wow, metal and prehistory!

I love the music of Ray Troll as much or even more than I love his paleoart!
He plays in a band known as the Ratfish Wranglers, which is appropriate since Troll was actually a critical part of the team that figured out that Helicoprion was more closely related to ratfish than true sharks!
I wrote a blog post recently featuring just a few of my favorite songs of theirs, but they've got plenty more good tracks both paleo-themed and not.

As it happens, most of the songs that made my list are about other prehistoric creatures with only one that even mentions dinosaurs, but it at least has a fun music video to go with it!

Also, how has nobody shared They Might Be Giants' masterpiece "I Am A Paleontologist" yet?

It’s quite fantastical and not remotely about dinosaurs, but something which looks exactly like the silhouette of a mosasaur periodically swims by in the background:



Also, the Radiohead song “I End Where You Begin” contains that legendary line “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth”. But it’s also not remotely about dinosaurs, sadly
"You can have all the dinosaurs you want my love, providing we have enough space"

Good god I love this song. But there’s actually a slightly longer version on YouTube if you can find it.
Did you know if you drink the juice in a magic eight ball you can see the future!?!

Speaking of They Might Be Giants (my favorite band) in their song mammal the mention alotherium (did I spell that right?)

Has anybody here ever listened to Professor Flint's music? He's got a couple of albums: Dinosaurs Down Under and Dinosaurs Amongst Us.
I shared a few of them at Dino Dad Reviews: https://dinodadreviews.com/2019/06/12/dino-dads-primeval-playlists-professor-flint-edition/
There's some fun tracks there! You may have heard of "Dinosaur Stampede" before; Professor Flint has performed it several times to promote Dinosaur Stampede National Monument in Australia.

Not a dinosaur, but we like prehistoric mammals here, don't we?

In the 2016 Disney CGI version of The Jungle Book, the famous King Louie song from the 1967 original gets an extra verse and chorus:

[Verse 3]
Now you might think it's ridiculous
That me, a gigantopithicus
Would ever dream I'd like to team
With the likes of you, mancub
But together, we'd have powers
All the jungle's treasures, ours
I got desire, you got the fire
But the dream I dream takes two

[Chorus]
So, ooh, I wanna be like you
I wanna use that flame just the same
Oh, how magnificus it would be
A gigantopithicus like me
Could learn to do like you humans do
Can learn to be like someone like you
Can learn to be like someone like me

Something I've been meaning to ask: Which T.rex song do you guys think is better?

The music isn't about dinosaurs, but there's as artist called Jeholornis.
