6. Find the Fox – XTC

 

A b side obscurity from XTC that shows how strong in depth their classic song writing was in asong that details the wily and smart fox escaping its hunters with the classic English imagery of the band.

7. Foxhole – Television

 
Utterly hypnotic song from the New York CBGBs king. The twin guitars pull you in and Tom Verliane’s voice is pure poetry. Not strictly about out friend the fox but close enough!

8. Reynard The Fox – Julian Cope

 

Fantastic anti fox hunting song from the maverick and brilliant Cope.

9 Fox And The Wolf – Bring Me The Horizon

 

Noisy young British upstarts who sell loads of records worldwide and were curiously over looked by the Mercury awards last year pitch in with their own fox song.

10 S-s-s-single Bed – Fox

 

Big 1976 hit for the band fronted by Australian singer Noosha Fox who was doing Goldfrapp decades before. They were quirky and off the wall and ahd a couple of hits but this were their best- one of the great lost pop singles even if it’s not actually about foxes…

and one we missed out and shouldn’t have…
