Cow Songs

I checked the odd holiday website today and discovered that tomorrow, July 17th is Wrong Way Corrigan Day, Yellow Pig Day, National Hot Dog Day and Cow Appreciation Day. I figured that cows would make the most interesting material for a playlist, so I put together 40 tracks about our flatulent friends. I did a search to find out more about Cow Appreciation Day and found a bunch of conflicting dates. Some sites list it as July 14th, some as July 15th, some as July 16th, and Chick-Fil-A has their own celebration on July 9th. But instead of worrying too much about it, just do like I do and love the cow 24/7/365.

This could be considered the Bovine Top 40. But what would you add to the list?
