Mystery Dog

To be honest, I have no idea what this is about. It started as an instrumental noodle, then the chorus impressed itself on me, then I wrote the words down without really thinking about it, and now I’m supposed to take responsibility for it. It’s entirely possible that I gave it the title when it was still an instrumental noodle. I do like it, it’s just that I have no idea what it’s about. Corrupt old men coming to an unspecified sticky end. So surprisingly upbeat for one of my things.

It has a spoken rather than sung verse, because… because I couldn’t think of a tune, I suppose. It reminds me of the very fine Danish/Scottish duo Livingstone’s Kabinet, who I’d recommend very highly.

It was also uploaded as part of the 2009 Upload Splurge, though obviously has been remixed for this time.
