Babydog

Album: Looking in the Shadows (1996)
  • songfacts ®
  • Written by band member Gina Birch, in this song we find out that the singer can't have a baby, so she decides to get a dog instead, but treats it as human, putting it in a pram a taking it to the park. By the end of the song, she decides to let it be a dog, ditching the pram and letting it play fetch.
  • The Loughton-based MY LITTLE fanzine enthused over this song in Issue 10, writing: "Gina sings about a woman who, after failed attempts to have a baby, decides on getting a dog. This is the saddest f--king song in the whole world and I'm not exaggerating one bit here." >>
