Luke Ski
Snoopy The Dogg 
Back in 1993 when Snoop Doggy Dogg first appeared on the scene with his name-laden-chorus-hook song "Who Am I? What's My Name?", I had the idea of doing a parody of that song about the comic strip "Peanuts", its main character Charlie Brown, and of course his dog Snoopy. I wrote the idea down in my notebook, but never started working on it mainly because I assumed that somebody somewhere was going to do the same idea. I figured everyone else was thinking the exact same thing that I was; that it was very, very silly that a supposedly big-bad, scary, tough gangsta rapper seriously named himself after a world famous cartoon dog.

17 or so years later, I'm going through my old notebooks looking for lost undone song ideas to talk about on my podcast, and I found "Snoopy The Dogg" written on my very first list of song parody ideas, and my mind boggled at the fact that to this day, still, nobody had ever recorded a comedy song tying "Snoop" to "Snoopy". And since Charles Schulz was such a huge inspiration to me both in art and comedy when I was very young, I figured it was time for me to stop being so wishy-washy and make this tribute tune a reality.

Backup vocals by Carrie Dahlby [the little red haired girl], cameo vocals by Chris Mezzolesta [beagle scout leader], Insane Ian [isn't he the cutest thing?], and the Stacey [naturally curly hair]. Music by Jared Ringold [sly dog], additional instrumentation and mixdown by Bob Emmet [Daisy Hill Puppy Farmer].


This song is now available on the following CDs:

WELL DONE!! This is the best thing you've produced in a while, Luke. Thank you for the tribute to Charles Schulz at the end. Shame this wasn't made in The Living Years.

Heh! I love it--the "Linus and Lucy" Vince Guaraldi references, the _other_ "Charlie Brown" lines...brilliant.

I love this. On a somewhat related note when I was in college I had a caricature assignment and I chose to draw Snoop Dogg. I drew him sitting on top of Snoopy's house with Charlie Brown standing next to him saying "Why can't I have a normal dog like everybody else?" Came out cool.

Fantastic song, thanks for previewing it to those of us who attended MarsCon last weekend. I was looking forwards to getting the studio version today.

I smell a hit! I can see this match up with The Royal Guardsmen and their hit about Snoopy.

Excellent tune. I've added it to the playlist for The Mad Music Show this weekend. If there IS a show this weekend, that is...

Great stuff! really funny, and I think even Snoop himself would enjoy it... or Snoopy. Well, one of them would enjoy it...

Great rhymes Luke! And congrats on being the first to make a Snoop Dogg song about, well, Snoopy.
