It’s all about dogs this week. Need I really say much more about mans best friend when so many other people sing about that old pooch everyone loves to have around for family time? So lets roll with the good times, and the dog songs as the dog days of summer have moved on.
Ludacris – Move Bitch!
Hilarious. You tell shitty drivers Ludacris! You tell them to move out the way. Oh and what the fuck are the other two rapping about, why they even in this. Anyways, typical rap star video, as seen by the amount of shiny objects and titties bouncing about. As for the shoving people out of the way, that’s only around to sort of justify the lyrics in a visual way.
Baha Men – Who Let the Dogs Out
The ironic thing about this is that people in the Caribbean don’t exactly treat dogs like man’s best friend. They’re guard dogs not a family member. But this song somehow became the basic go-to song for any sort of family friendly moment where things had to go a bit crazy. There is even an Alvin and the Chipmunks cover of this pile of dog poop. Sadly, unlike the short lived Macarena, this is going to still stick for a bit.
Crash Test Dummies – Keep a Lid on Things
I would like to know who put the dog in the dog house (eventually it seems). But sadly this never addressed ever again in this song. Realistically this video doesn’t make any sense and is basically silly non-sense. It’s a pretty boring take on the music video based around the band since really no one does anything. This song was also weirdly popular for a bit, but went away like so many other Canadian songs and artists.
Florence + The Machine – Dog Days are Over (2010 release)
While I couldn’t find the already bizarre 2008 original release of this video, I have this half a mess to deal with which has nothing to do with dogs, days or summer. I’m not sure where to begin with this video. Do I point out the attempts of mirroring artists like Bjork, or the competition against Lady Gaga? If you read the description of the original video it doesn’t seem so bad, when you look at this mess of a thing. While it is kind of cool that she looks like a porcelain China doll, all the other stuff just seems to add some clutter and results in a bad copy attempt of Daft Punk’s Around the World. But still, I dance to this mess when it’s playing at the club…
Come back summer.
