Such a fresh, vibrant album and a perfect time capsule. It still jumps out of the speakers almost 30 years on.
Yeah, me too. Ah well, maybe next lifetime...
True fact. My son when he was about 4 or 5 was singing along to this in the car and was caught using the "dog" word, so tis a bit confusing. At 15 this is still one of his favorite bands, a man with taste!
Masterpiece. More so, because they never repeated anything even close to this quality.

Of all the mondegreens through the past half century or so of listening to songs on radio and now the ether, this must be the most
consistently misinterpreted I have heard. I wanna be a dog wins on all counts. I wish it was possible to hear it as sung, or so I imagine.
Fine, be a dog then... woof.

they were adored in the weekend at Wembley stadion...
Reni is truly spectacular on the drums {#Drummer}, busy as hell on those cans...
the rest of the guys felt like a overgrown boy band, but still it was a good experience to catch them live, finally.

Adoooooooorrrrrr-aaaahhhhhhhhhhh-dorrrrred!!!   you are by me  : )

I'd actually rather be a bird but to each his own :^ /

That's fair. Yeah, it's a nice song. You can enjoy the song and have a bit of fun too, and in this case, we may have overdone it just a little. : )
Peace.

He doesn't have to sell his soul. He will shed away what isn't dog. The dog is already inside. It is as good a thing to want as any.

EXACTLY!  That part where he keeps barking that he wants to be a dog....

Reminds me of the time I dropped into a leather shop in Folsom Gulch, not far from The Eagle, looking for a decent motorcycling jacket, when I spied a couple of fellows next to my rack.  One was dressed pretty normally w/ jeans, and the other was trying on the leather.  The jeans guy was standing there reassuring his partner, who was on his hands and knees wearing a studded dog-collar that was connected to a leash that was held by Mr. Blue Jeans — "It's okay, there now.  That's better isn't it?" were the very words of Mr. Blue Jeans to Fido.

This song and that visual are forever linked in my mind....

 
Haha! You're stuck with it now!  {#Frustrated}

In my head this was always "i wanna be a 'Door' "
(& Jim (Morrison) responding "no chance mate, the vacancies are already filled")

Better you than me. This was a 10 when I first heard it (not in a leather shop) and it's still a 10.

Without a doubt the greatest song ever recorded.

I always kinda heard it as "I wanna be a door...," which is even more bizarre.  Now that I've perused the lyrics, I can't hear that any more.
"Ah wanna be yore luvver, beh-BAY, ah wanna be yer dawg..."

Wait a minute...umm...
Why does he want to be a dog ? And how does he intend to do it ?
Fantastic album! Shame they couldn't do more of this calibre.
Probably the most natural, loose, almost lazy guitar riffs I have ever heard - genius
Very Cool!
Who doesn't? Absolutely Brilliant

Everyone in my capsule hotel room loves this song!

Funny, playing this right after Iggy.
Saw these guys in Singapore Indoor Stadium on their recent come back tour...was amazing....as good as as my drink filled student days hazily remembered {#Bananajam}
I don't wanna be a dog !

My sister-in-law's ex left her with 'needing to be adored' as one of the reasons he left - makes it hard to like this song but I do anyway (sorry S-I-L)

My thought too.  And it would be fitting, following, as it does this Sunday, Iggy Pop. Another clever BillG segue.
