Hank Dogs – 18 Dogs

Murder ballads are fun, especially when they involve vicious animals.

There’s something about the delivery of this particular story that intrigues me. By singing words like “I’ll take the greatest of pleasure in watching you torn limb from limb” in a detached, airy monotone, it actually makes it creepier than if it had been sung with obvious malice.

At least to me.
