Today I’ve been trying to find the perfect soundtrack to two hares boxing. Obviously.
It’s March and I wanted to find me some Mad Hares, but all month my efforts have been thwarted, so rather than let the folklore go, I went online. And found this:

And weeping, as I cast aside such classics as Ace of Spades by Motörhead and Heatwave by Martha and the Vandellas, I have whittled it down to just five contenders. But I can’t whittle no more.

By the way, any reference to Other Life in the song titles is purely coincidental, I think…
