That Dog


That Dog was a quirky punk/alternative band that started in 1994.  The first song I heard of theres was a weird song called Old Timer ( <- Bevis and Butthead version).  This song seems to be mocking an old man taking advantage of the senior special at a buffet.  The harmony of their voices is what makes the song unique and pleasant though.  


The second song I heard of theirs, and, from what I can tell, the only one to make it onto any radio airplay charts, was from their third and final album named Retreat from the Sun.  The song is named Never Say Never.  The lyrics aren't anything special.  They seem to be implying a devotion to some guy.  The song is a lot more pop sounding than their earlier song(s).  It doesn't hurt that the lead singer, Anna Waronker, looked quite hot.  Give these two songs a listen and tell me what you think.  If you like them, search out some other That Dog songs on youtube.  There seem to be a few other good ones, but I hadn't heard anything of them until recently.  It also seems Anna Waronker has a solo album out, though, from the few seconds of it I've listened to, it seems a bit Adult Contemporary for my tastes.
