Radio XLIL, side A, track 8: “Tiger In A Dress” by Dan Reed Network

Dan Reed Network - Tiger In A DressOh, Dan Reed Network, so are you guys on LinkedIn?  Maybe Yammer?  The reason I ask is that the name of your band sounds less like a balls-to-the-wall rock band and more like a consulting firm.  “We need someone to really look into the return on investment on this thing.”  “Let’s get the Dan Reed Network, I’ve heard really good things about them.”

I’m just giving you shit, Dan Reed Network.  I didn’t even know this was the name of the band until just about now.  I remembered the song immediately, of course, since it’s awesome, but the DJ didn’t bother to let us know who was actually singing this one, and I’m pretty sure this is the only song by you that I ever captured on my tapes, so I just knew that there was a band out there that had at one point in their careers made this great song that immediately had me mystified since obviously I would clearly want to know more about this woman who was considered a tiger in a dress.

These days, though, when I hear about a woman who’s a tiger in a dress or in the sack or really anywhere, I am wont to steer clear.  To quote Murtaugh:  “I’m too old for this shit.”  Well, that and I’m married.  But yeah, Dan Reed Network, equating a woman with a tiger equals “unstable” in my book.  If you’re into scratches and biting, go for it, but all that sounds like to me is that I’m going to have to stock up on Neosporin and Band-Aids and answer awkward questions in the office.  And maybe have to go to the security desk when the tiger shows up at my job demanding to see me.

Tigers kill people, Dan Reed Network.  We’ll chat more at the La Quinta next time you’re in town for a conference.

  1. […] McAuley Schenker Group, I think you and Dan Reed Network should get together and put on a conference about how to make the most boring rock band names ever. […]
