Dr. Dog: Worst Trip

I woke up this morning and it totally slipped my mind that today was a Saturday. Well firstly, it certainly didn’t feel like it due to the annoying fact that I had another exam paper to sit for. On a freaking Saturday, can you believe that?


It never occurred to me to post up Dr. Dog’s ‘Worst Trip’ or any of their song for that matter. It wasn’t until my sister pointed out how much she liked it, was when it hit me, how could’ve I ever overlooked this one track? The groovy infectious melodies that feels like it came straight out of the 1960s pop music scene are simply fun-filled catchiness, how can you say no to that?

Dr. Dog, albeit the fact being mistaken for a hip hop group due to its name, is in truth a psychedelic rock band that’s based in Philadelphia. Their music has repeatedly been made comparisons to bands such as the Beatles, the Band, and well, not surprisingly the Beach Boys, although in this song, the aforementioned comparisons are pretty much absent. The song is strewn with bouncy, jangly guitar lines and blasting horns that makes it sound so festive and lively that could leave you with the impression of how the tune is so inaptly named. The song is just one joyous, fun song to listen to – you have absolutely nothing to lose.
