Friday Morning Dawg Bites Has Got You Where It Wants You

Come for the Georgia Bulldogs news, stay for the discussion of 90’s teen thriller Disturbing Behavior and its surprisingly enjoyable soundtrack.

Join me again on a nightmare musical journey through the mid to late 1990s. A journey of terror and woe which I’ve chosen to run parallel (and in stark contrast) to these blissful days of Bulldog dominance.

The year? 1998. The film? Disturbing Behavior. A time when James Marsden wasn’t a murderous HBO robot and Katie Holmes wasn’t the ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise strewn across the check-out aisle tabloids. Before Nick Stahl ended up in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and way before he randomly disappeared and started getting arrested for lewd conduct and possession of crystal meth. A simpler time. A time when Jim Donnan stalked the sidelines of Sanford Stadium... you know... let’s block that part out.

In 1998, The Flys released their one and only hit. A song from the Disturbing Behavior soundtrack which, in my twisted mind, perfectly encapsulates tomorrow’s game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders. In a sort of creepy, semi-misogynistic, “wow, this hasn’t aged well” kind of way. Plus, being 1998 it’s got an adult contemporary meets nu-metal vibe and, towards the end, just when you least expe- Oh my God, he’s rapping. Anyway, here we go...

And now, on to your Friday Morning Dawg Bites:
