For some reason the other day I got to thinking about bands that write songs about their pets. Probably because I was listening to the Weakerthans at some point. Oh yeah! It was because I was doing that little blog about them…so anyway, here’s the song in question and a couple more.
First up is the Suicide Machines with Sometimes I Don’t Mind, about someone’s dog I presume. Otherwise it’s really creepy.
Then the Weakerthans song I mentioned in the aforementioned blog post, Plea from a Cat named Virtue and a track from the final Red House Painters album (Old Ramon), Wop-a-Din-Din to close things out. Both cat tracks. I can’t say I’ve liked either of our cats enough to write them a song. They’ve been ok I guess…well, Breakfast was really annoying and I really wasn’t sad to get rid of him other than that left Zuri without a playmate. Oh well, Z will be chasing her around the house soon enough…then we’ll see if she still whines for attention! Mu ha ha. Hah.
