"Never Say Never" is a 1997 single by that dog., and the second track on the band's third album, Retreat from the Sun.


"Never Say Never" is arguably the band's biggest hit, albeit a minor one at best. A video and CD single were issued to promote the single. The single's B-sides include "Little Miss Riding Hood" (exclusive to this release), and an acoustic version of "Silently", a song originally from the album Totally Crushed Out!. This version features Beck on accompanying banjo, and also surfaced on the 1998 benefit compilation Hear You Me! A Tribute To Mykel And Carli. Former Go-Go and Anna Waronker's sister-in-law Charlotte Caffey plays guest keyboards on the lead track.

  3. "Silently" (acoustic)



I was blind as a bat
And still knew where you were at
I was deaf and dumb
And still knew that you're the only one

I could show up at your door
And still know what you're looking for
I could wait in your line
And if you had no money I'd give you my last dime

I never (never, never) took it out
No, I never (never, never) took it out on you
No, I never (never say never) take it out on you

Never say never
