Busker in South Shields

Busker in South Shields

O.K., O.K., so he probably wasn’t playing the old Elvis Presley number on his accordian as he entertained shoppers in King Street, South Shields.

What sort of canine cannon do you think he might have been playing then?

Answers in the comments please – I’ll start the ball rolling with “How much is that doggy in the window”.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, mm lens, 1/90second, f11, iso 200

  1. Since it’s a beagle, I’m going to say anything by Vince Guaraldi.

  2. It amazes me how this photo works in black and white but it really does. I think there might be a song called ‘Puppy Love’ and as the dog looks like a puppy, perhaps that’s appropriate?!

  3. Maybe he was playing Ozzy Osbourne’s Bark at the Moon? šŸ˜‰

  4. Well, since I use the nickname Strangetates, my vote is for Frank Zappa’s “Dog Breath In the Year Of the Plague.” I agree that nothing by Elvis would work on the accordion but a slight rearrangement of the scene would lend itself to Patti Page’s “How Much Is That Doggy In the Window.”

    Very nice street portrait, by the way.

  5. why do some buskers insist on parading their pet dog – is it a sympathy vote because their entrepreneurial skills and musical talent are lacking perhaps?? give the dog a bone
