Album of Songs About Famous Dogs is Raising Money for Dogs Displaced by Hurricane Harvey
Not everyone is donating to the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. Some are doing what they can for the animals in need.
Several artists have written new tracks for an album called “Dog Songs”, with all the proceeds going to the ASPCA to help dogs displaced by Harvey. All the songs are about famous dogs, too.
Mark Hoppus from Blink-182 contributed a song called “Not Every Dog Goes to Heaven”, which is about Dinky the dog from “National Lampoon’s Vacation”.
If you recall, Chevy Chase left poor Dinky tied to the rear bumper of the Family Truckster as he and the family continued on their journey to Wally World.
Other songs pay tribute to Scooby Doo, Einstein from “Back to the Future”, Santa’s Little Helper from “The Simpsons”, and Daisy from “John Wick”.
There’s only one song about a real dog. It’s called “Gary and the Princess” and it’s about Carrie Fisher’s dog Gary. It’s by Nerf Herder, which is totally appropriate, since the phrase “Nerf Herder” is a “Star Wars” reference made famous by Princess Leia.
“Dog Songs” has 14 tracks, and it’s only 8 bucks. You can get it from BandCamp.com.
