Animal Collective - Who Could Win a Rabbit: Wikipedia Album Entry

"Who Could Win a Rabbit" is the first single from band Animal Collective's fifth album, Sung Tongs.

The song is notable for its quick and poppy structure and its obscure and seemingly non-sensical lyrics. It also possesses an unusual time signature. Based on 3/4, which has been used repeatedly by the band, it has two sporadic bars on 4/4 and a bridge on 5/4.

It was rated by Pitchfork Media to be the 54th best single of 2000-2004. The song "Baby Day" is included on the single as a b-side.

Music video
The music video for Who Could Win A Rabbit was directed by Danny Perez, who subsequently directed the Animal Collective visual album ODDSAC. The video features Avey Tare and Panda Bear as a rabbit and turtle respectively, racing each other in the same vein as Aesop's fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, while Geologist and Deakin are spectators of the race.
