This Corgi pearl comes to ilovecorgis.com by way of Dan, newly promoted to Director of the Art and Music Department. Our NY Bureau Chief put in a good word, and after Dan discovered a song, THAT’S RIGHT A SONG, called “The Corgi” the promotion really was a no-brainer.
According to the Washington Post, “The Corgi” by Sleaford Mods is the 20th best single of 2014. Ilovecorgis.com might not be on the top 40 Corgi list, but we’ll be damned if Corgis can’t make it onto a musical top 40 list.
Now, thanks to the wonders of streaming (and to the Washington Post), ilovecorgis.com HQ has added this song to the repertoire of elevator music. The subtle base and whiny pitched shouting now echoes in our outer lobby. We’ve used company funds to purchase “The Corgi” on itunes AND Amazon.com. Note: Amazon.com is 10 cents cheaper than Apple itunes, and ilovecorgis.com probably will get 1% of the 89 cent purchase if you click the Amazon link. Hey, you have to support the arts when you can. Sleaford Mods, you’re welcome. Now if only our IT department could figure out how to play music in the background of a website, we’d be set.
A more formal review of the song is best saved for a later post, one that will allow us to dedicate our full attention to the lyrics, the harmony, and the true essence of the artistic masterpiece. Let’s just say that the Washington Post deems it worthy of the following playlists: Best Songs of 2014 [now that’s a big honor!], Great Songs About Dogs [no denying that] and describes the song as “An irate British Man is shouting at you.” And ilovecorgis.com would like to add that while some songs use cow bell, this song features the bark only reminiscent of Bling or other Corgis.
