When we were told to have fun with the 24-foot chicken sculpture in DPL Central's Schlessman Hall (also known as Monument for the 308), the first thing I thought of after "chicken dance flash mob!" was "chicken playlist." I asked my colleague Andrew Wickins to take on this challenge, and you are in for a treat. He even discovered a Johnny Cash song which has become his new favorite! YouTube links provided.
The Chicken in Black - Johnny Cash
The Chicken Dance song (AKA the Bird Song, the Birdie Song, the Chicken Song) - Werner Thomas (instrumental)
