      Salty Dog is a song by Flogging Molly which appears on their album Swagger. The track starts off fairly quietly with just an acoustic guitar strumming a chord progression and then a fiddle playing a lead over it before the rest of the band comes in to double this part and give the song a much fuller sound.

      Flogging Molly has always managed to impress me with the large instrumentation they have yet each part still maintains its own unique sound and the entire song somehow still works in coherency, Salty Dog is ...


      • no exception.

        Like most of their songs, the vocals are just full of energy and the vocal melody fits extremely well, this band certainly has an excellent sense of melody and knowing what works and what doesn’t it seems like.

        The main fiddle part of this song obviously has that very Irish sound to it which just makes you really want to move around because

        the riff is so alive.

        The last set of vocals is quieter and more melodic than the rest at the beginning because it gradually builds up to get back into that very characteristic energy of Flogging Molly.

        Overall, the song is extremely short and quite straightforward but it’s just an energetic track and I couldn’t imagine someone really not enjoying the song, at least for fun.
