What if your dog could sing?

Dogs do speak but have you ever wondered if your dog could sing?

We asked our readers which songs they are most likely to hear if their dog could sing and here’s what they had to say…. (To our surprise no one mentioned ― Who let the dogs out?)

14 Songs you may hear if your dog could sing…

1. ‘Iris’ ― Goo Goo Dolls

if your dog could sing

You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be.
And I don’t wanna go home right now… 

If there ever was a lady Dr. Dolittle, Geetalima di’ would be her. The dog whisperer has so often heard her four-legged kids sway their ears to this song.

2. ‘Theory Of The Crows’ ― The National

Abhilasha and her adopted kids swear by The National’s words:

And if I forget you
I’ll have nobody left to forget…

 3. ‘Fix You’ ― Coldplay

Riya Bamniyal, the actress/model/TV Presenter, but most importantly a dog-lover, knows that dogs don’t lie about love and are always there to fix all that’s broken.

When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
I will try to fix you.

 4.’Happy’ ― Pharrell Williams

Acclaimed model and Devika Raizada and her pooch Phoebe know that there’s no ‘Y’ in ‘Happiness’ 🙂

Devika Raizada dog lover
Because I’m happy!

It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy.


The Bark Is the Song of the Dog


5. ‘Free Fallin’ John Mayer

Devout dog worshipper Natasha Adlakha and Google are John Mayer fans 🙂

Natasha dog lover

I wanna write her name in the sky
I wanna free fall out into nothin’
I’m gonna leave this world for a while
Now I’m free, free fallin’, fallin’
Now I’m free, free fallin’, fallin’.
  

6. ‘Let Me Sleep’ ― Pearl Jam

Ira and her pooch believe in bringing home the Christmas spirit…

Cold wind blows on the soles of my feet
Heaven knows nothing of me
I’m lost nowhere to go
Oh when I was a kid oh how magic it seemed
Oh please let me sleep it’s Christmas time.

Ira

 7. ‘Kabhi aana tu meri gully’― Euphoria 

 Sukhda and her fur babies are all for Palash Sen’s Euphoria and their anthem of choice croons around the streets.

Kabhi aana tu meri gully Euphoria
Kya baithegi tu ganga kinare Main na hu jo wahan                                                                                     Kya jannat aur kya ye tirath Kuch nahin tere kaam                                                                                 Ho jaayenge dhaam saare Legi jab mera naam                                                                                   Kabhi aana tu meri gully.

8. ‘Red Hill Mining Town’ ― U2

Kaalicharan‘s geeky Greek friend Virginia and her best friend Peru have U2’s cult hit as their song.

 I can lose myself. You, I can’t live without.

9. ‘Listen To The Man’ ― George Ezra

Pristine as the river, I believe she’s named after, Kaveri has so often helped this dog when it comes to spreading adoption updates. Not only this, she rescues in hoards and across species – guinea pigs, cats, dogs… humans 🙂

Here, we have Pebble And Beetle at their aww-worthy best!

I feel your head resting heavy on your single bed
I want to hear all about it, get it all off your chest
I feel the tears and you’re not alone
When I hold you well I won’t let go
Why should we care for what they’re selling us anyway
We’re so young girl and you know.

10. ‘Tuney mari entriyaan, dil mein baji ghantiyaan’ ― Gunday

Divya’s best bud ‘Saawan’ is a Bollywood buff and since he’s happiest on everyone’s arrival, his song exudes the same excitement for the door bell!

11. ‘The Bare Necessities’ ― Jungle Book 

Having rescued 8 dogs, Dhruv knows that the simple joys of life are all that matter. A fan of The Jungle Book, he even has a mutt named Baloo.

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life.

12. ‘My Best Friend’  ― Weezer

Sandhya Gola and her brother, the sibling team which feeds their canine neighbours, believe that Weezer’s My Best Friend is the apt song that describes their bond with the dogs.

my best friend dog

There is no other one that can take your place
I feel happy inside when I see your face
I hope you believe me Because I speak sincerely
and I mean it when I tell you
I need you.
You are my best friend and I love you,
and I love you Yes I do.

13. ‘Army Of One  ― Coldplay

When we asked Deepthi which song would it be if her dog could sing, it was Coldplay’s latest album.

army of one coldplay

So I never say die
Aim never untrue
I’m never so high as when I’m with you
And there isn’t a fire that I wouldn’t walk through
My army of one is gonna fight for you.

14. ‘Where Are You Going?  ― Dave Matthews Band 

Where are you going,
Where do you go.
Are you looking for answers,
To questions, under the stars
Well, if along the way,
You are grown weary,
You can rest with me
Until a brighter day
When you ok.

I am no superman, 
I have no answers for you. 
I am no hero, 
And that’s for sure.
But I know one thing,
That’s where you are, is where I belong.
I do know 
Where you go,
Is where I want to be.

Over to you, which song would it be if your dog could sing?
