“Somewhere Out There” is the big weepy-ballad centerpiece of the 1986 Don Bluth animated movie An American Tale, and it’s been stuck in my head pretty much nonstop since 1986. Apparently, snot-rock warrior King Tuff can relate. Tuff contributed a surprisingly low-in-snark cover of the song to The Wiener Dog Comp, a benefit cassette compilation, now sold-out, that raised money for an ailing dachshund named Popcorn. Hear it below; thanks to Michael_ for the tip.
The Wiener Dog Comp is out now (and sold out) on Burger Records.
