"Dog Eat Dog" is an homage to Talking Heads classics like "Once in a Lifetime" and "And She Was," but the live performances features Al in full-on Byrne regalia and mannerisms. According to Al himself: "That's one of my favorite songs off the album," says Al. "It's inspired by Talking Heads, and also by my days working in the traffic department at Westwood One -- my first and hopefully only desk job. At first I thought it was kinda cool that I had a phone and a desk and a little cubicle to call my own, but after a while I felt like my soul had been sucked out of me. The song is kind of a tongue-in-cheek look at office life."
