Who let this song out? I just got disc# 3216 specifically for "Who Let The Dogs Out?" and let me tell you what a big disappointment. Doesn't Soundchoice listen to top 40 stations? Nobody is listening to the regular version, they are all playing the dance version! I put this song on hoping it would be a good novelty dance song to learn and sadly it was not. Well, I hope Soundchoice reads this and will reconsider releasing the dance club version of "Who Let The Dogs Out" I don't know about anybody else but I want a refund. Am I alone on this??? Yours truly, Karaoke John

Here in the Midwest I have yet to hear someone play the "dance mix" version of WHO LET THE DOGS OUT at a karaoke gig OR on the radio. Personally, I dislike the dance version and I'm glad that SC has decided to go with the original radio version of the song.
However, I heard that another karaoke company did release the dance mix version of WLTDO so at least you have a choice.

To be honest, the reason I was first attracted to WLTDO is because of how difrent it is from all of the other dance songs out there right now. The dance mix version of it turns it into JAFDS...just another freek'n dance song. It looses it's originality in the translation into a dance mix in my opinion.

I thought that dance version of PHM was pretty retarded. I was under the impression they couldn't do the real thing, so they went with what they were used to - synthesized midi stuff. Not only that, the lyrics were directly copied from the internet from some lame-o who tried to interpret the song as doggies running away, which is not what the song's about. It's missing verses even.
Anyway, SC doesn't do dance remixes. And if they did, it would be labeled as such. I only expect original versions when I buy SC CDG's.
PS: WLTHO was written a few years ago by Ansel Douglas. It's not a Baja Men original.

Anyone notice the musical similarities between WLTDO and WHOOMP! There It Is, at least in the music that is under the part where they sing WLTDO. Sing Whoomp! when they're singing WLTDO. It fits.
Funny, in some parts of the country the dance version IS the radio version, and in other parts, the radio version is the radio version.
I prefer the dance version for karaoke because, at my shows, ppl like to dance.
Well, I did it at the bar, so the whole world knows I'm an idiot..
BTW Grateful, it Anslem Douglas that wrote it, and I've been told he's from Toronto. Don Cherry (former Bruins coach, and Hockey Night In Canada commentator) owns a Junior A team called the Mississauga Ice Dogs, and this song suffers from overkill at the arena they play in.

....in a few more months, this song will be relegated to the "livin' la vida loca/mambo #5/my heart will go on/wouldn't-be-caught-dead-singing-this-in-public-ever-again" recycle bin. and good riddance!
the lakers are even cranking it up for whenever mark "mad dog" madsen enters a game from the bench.
dance version or original, i can't stand it any more!!!! AAARRGH!!!!
Sugarboy7: Shelby Lynne was a country artist, but with her latest release, I Am Shelby Lynne, she's taken more of a pop focus and that's how the label is promoting her
