This Song Has Gone To The Dogs
And now, as the late great Casey Kasem might say, a long distance dedication from Denmark to the rest of the world. Let's set the wayback machine to 1955 and the release of an icon of holiday kitsch "The Singing Dogs". You know the one, where the barking dogs belt out Jingle Bells for their human masters.
"The idea for the Singing Dogs came from Danish recording engineer Carl Weismann... by splicing together the pitches of dog barks into the pattern of songs.......1971, RCA reissued "Jingle Bells" as a single, becoming a Christmas hit on virtually every radio format. Since then, the track has received frequent media exposure during the Christmas and holiday season. It topped the Billboard Christmas Singles chart in 1972."
"Jump ahead 23 years to 1995 and cue the kitties! Jingle Cats, a Christmas novelty song was released to radio stations a few years before the full album came out. In all, it took more than 1,000 meows, screeches and growls to assemble 20 melodies...In 1995, Here Comes Santa Claws won a "Billie" award from Billboard for point-of-purchase category"
