Song of the day: Love Messengers – "Dogsmile"

March 4, 2013

I received an email by Finnish band Love Messengers (Hei, chaps!) who let me know about their latest song, “Dogsmile”. They asked if I wouldn’t mind putting it on the blog. I didn’t mind at all.

Now that I’ve heard it, I can quite confidently say that I think “Dogsmile” is a likeable ditty. It has enough “oo-oo-oo”s and “Hey hey hey!”s in it to prompt me to type the following words:

That was fun.

Before I play you “Dogsmile”, I want to mention three things:

A mild annoyance: I thought the band overused this melodic snippet throughout the song.

(I can’t complain too much though, because I used it a fair bit in a song I wrote as well.)

Trivia: In the guitar solo (2:05-2:34) there’s a bum note at 2:15. (It’s underneath the main note.)

Production suggestion: I would have liked the Hammond organ much louder in the mix (at least as loud as the guitar).

But apart from that, I like “Dogsmile”:
