Listen to The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ from Sex Education, S4 Ep 2 end credits

The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog‘ saved the second episode of Sex Education, Season 4 for me

While I have rarely hated a drama as much as I detest the fourth season of Sex Education (Jesus, the latest season of this thing is abysmally-written with stupid scenarios and with some of the most annoying people on streaming TV right now), I cannot fault the music on its soundtrack as, hell, the music supervisor of Sex Education has really outdone themselves with Season 4.

With songs from The Cure, Ezra Furman, Confidence Man and Nina Simone just to name a few, to also be spoiled with the inclusion of the American rock band The Stooges’ classic track ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog‘ on the latest season really is a blessing.

The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’, by the way, showed up on Season 4 of Sex Education on Episode 2 playing over the end credits.

The perfect song for the conclusion of the episode as Otis watches O’s campaign video and realizes she is miles ahead of him in the therapist and popularity department.

When was The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog‘ released?

American rock band The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ was a song I stumbled across decades ago when I was a DJ for an alternative radio station in the mid-west.

Since then, the garage rock track has been one of my favorite indie rock tracks, primarily for its gorgeously distorted guitar and cool, repetitive piano riff.

The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog‘ came out in early 1969, and has since shown up on a plethora of TV and movie soundtracks since, including appearances on movies like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Transporter 3, and on TV shows like the recent Hulu series Reservation Dogs.

Now it is featured on the Sex Education soundtrack, and I love it.

You can hear The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog‘ from the second episode of the latest season of Sex Education in the remastered version of the track via Spotify, and in the video.

With 94 million plays on Spotify for the remastered version of the track alone, it is one of the most popular songs from the now-defunct band.
