The Thieving Magpie (La Gazza Ladra) is a double live album by the British neo-progressive rock band Marillion. It was named after the introductory piece of classical music the band used before coming on stage during the Clutching at Straws tour 1987–1988, the overture to Rossini's opera La gazza ladra, which translates as "The Thieving Magpie".
One magpie at the birth of Jesus, perhaps presaging sorrow for Mary: Piero della Francesca's Nativity. The rhyme has its origins in superstitions connected with magpies, considered a bird of ill omen in some cultures, and in Britain, at least as far back as the early sixteenth century. Finnish melodic death metal band Insomnium's 2011 album One for Sorrow is named for the rhyme.
