I Wanna Be Your Hedgeho-o-oggggg!

Humans!  Non-humans!  The Your Song Community Collaboration is finally here!  I’ve got some tasty tracks lined up for you.  Not just any tracks, either.

The evolution of hedgehog songs

The best hedgehog songs are right here, starting with Rufus Thomas.  Thomas was a hip cat hog who wrote this song when he was strolling around the ‘hood singing nursery rhymes.  Only the coolest of the cool can do something like that.

I know he meant to sing “hedgehog” instead of “dog”.  The label must have told him “dog” fit better.  Pffft.

“The Dog,” by Rufus Thomas, 1963:


The Stones jumped into the hedgehog scene by covering Rufus Thomas’ modified song, this one about walking the hedgehog.  I figure “dog” was easier for Mick to sing that day.

Walking the hedgehog

“Walking the Dog,” performed by the Rolling Stones, 1965:


Oh, man, one of the best is up next — Hank Williams.  He dreamed up this catchy tune when a big hedgehog pushed a little ol’ hedgehog out of the way because his woman kicked him out of the house.  Chicks, man.

Move it on over little hedgehog, ’cause the big hog’s moving on in

“Move It On Over,” by Hank Williams, 1947:


The Cure wrote some great songs and they even styled their hair to look like hedgehog quills.  Gotta love their good taste.

Shake, hedgehog shake

“Shake Dog Shake” by The Cure:


My man, Iggy!  Love The Stooges.  They know what it’s all about.

I wanna be your hedgeho-o-oggggg!!!!

Neighbors threatened to call the cops, said they heard shrieking.  Hey, I don’t insult your singing.

“I Wanna Be Your Dog” by The Stooges, live:


I wanna be your hedgeho-o-oggggg!!!!

Hank Rocking Out

  2. Love Hank’s choice in music, brought many memories back. Hack is so cool, don’t tell him we don’t need to inflate his ego any larger than it is. Hack you heard not but alls good from me. I don’t know who was talking trash in my comments. We’ll save that question for another day. Peace Out!!!!!!!
