The jungle is a place that holds much mystery and can be used by the songwriter to set the stage for a wide range of stories. On one hand, it's lush, beautiful and teeming with life, but on the other hand, it's dark and dangerous. The word "jungle" comes from the Sanskrit word "jangala", which means undeveloped land, but over time it has come to refer only to thick tropical areas. Only 6% of Earth's land can be considered jungle and unfortunately, this number is shrinking as man continues to develop the rainforests.
For this playlist I wanted to select some of the best songs that feature the word "jungle" prominently in the song title.
