This week’s song for 51 Weeks: 51 Songs From the Past is Who Let the Dogs Out? performed by Baha Men.
The 2000 song was a chart topper in the US and UK as well as Australia and New Zealand. It’s popularity grew when it was featured in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. This song has the distinction of taking 3rd place on Rolling Stone’s 20 most annoying songs list, as well as 8th on their poll of worst songs of the 1990’s, and also ranking first on Spinner’s 2008 list of the “Top 20 Worst Songs Ever.”
This song was brought to you compliments of seven year old C.J. His little brother loves The Cat Came Back, which he sings all the time. After finding himself humming and singing it himself, he suggested Who Let the Dogs Out? as the perfect song to pair with it. I’ve included a video of The Cat Came Back, in case you aren’t familiar. But really, doesn’t everyone know this song???
Thanks for stopping in!
