Well, if you ever wanted to know what Dead Puppies sounded like when it was being performed by a traveling minstrel on a lute. I can help you out. Well, I don't actually have a lute, but I assume it sounds much like my 6-string ukulele.
What's that? You don't know what Dead Puppies is? Holy crap. Didn't you listen to the Dr. Demento show on the radio, growing up? What's that? You don't know what the radio is? Freaking kids today and your fancy interwebs and whatnot.
Here's a live version of Ogden Edsl rocking Dead Puppies. I dunno about you guys, but I totally want to hang with these dudes. Maybe it's the beard talking.
And here is my bathroom version of Dead Puppies.
This song is just one of those touchstones for me. I can't explain in. In fact, my brothers and I are working on a ridiculous requirements for our funerals. For example, the other brothers have to have Coolio hair, or everyone at the funeral must listen to 3 hours of my old 4-track recordings.... etc. Well, I'm pretty sure Dead Puppies is going to need to be played at my funeral and my ghost will ensure that everyone is singing along.
