The Divrei Navon Pop Media Series : Vol. 4 / “Bungle In The Jungle” – A Song on Life

 

"Bungle In The Jungle" is Jethro Tull's enduring hit single. Indeed, though released back in 1974, it continues to be a popular radio mainstay to this day. Composer Ian Anderson explains that the song seeks to explore the human condition via analogy to the animal kingdom. In consonance with this perspective, this essay explains the lyrics to sing of man's existential struggle - his "bungle" - through the "jungle" of this world. Furthermore, with hints to biblical eschatology, the song is shown to be informed with the notion of purposive history.
