Inspired by those feathered flippered beaky friends!
 
 
1. Rockin' Goose by Johnny and the Hurricanes


There seems to be rather a lot of quacking in this song!

2. Saturday Nite at the Duckpond by The Cougars


A rock 'n' roll spin on the classic ballet Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky
'Saturday Nite at the Duckpond' entered the chart on 28th February 1963 reaching Number 33. 


3. Disco Duck by Rick Dees and his Cast of Idiots


Just when you though the 1970's couldn't get any sillier...
'Disco Duck' entered the chart on 4th September 1976 reaching Number 6. 


Happy listening!
