Hair Of The Dog by Nazareth
Album: Hair Of The DogReleased: 1975
This song is about a charming and manipulative woman who can get guys to acquiese to her every need. The singer is letting her know that she has met her match in him, and she won't be able to push him around.
"Hair Of The Dog" does not appear in the lyrics. The logical title would be "Son Of A Bitch," but it would be tough to get airplay with a song of that name. "Hair Of The Dog" comes from the phrase "Hair of the dog that bit you," which some people consider a hangover cure, meaning that if you wake up in pain after drinking lots of beer the night before, a beer will help cure you.
In the US, this was used in a TV commercial for Dodge. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
Artist to cover this song include Guns N' Roses, Warrant and The Michael Schenker Group.
