EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: (How Much Is That) Doggie In The Window

mzi.qicjmmhr.170x170-75“(How Much Is That) Doggie In The Window” by Lita Roza was Number One on 18th April 1953 and it remained at number one for 1 week.

Well, they certainly don’t make them like this anymore, do they? I always thought this song was just a kids song and never realised it was an actual song that reached the top of the charts.

Maybe in a few weeks we’ll hear “Humpty Dumpty” followed by “Jack & Jill”…

Lita does have a brilliant voice and I’d be happy if she sang all the nursery rhymes!

Also, a fact for the fact bank – Lita was the first British solo artist to top the UK charts.

    I saw today that they’re moving the charts to Friday nights to put the UK in line with the rest of the world. Feels like Radio 1 have just micturated on my childhood. I used to have a Pavlovian reaction to Mark Goodiers voice, where I would sit, fingers over play and record, waiting to tape the good songs, sometimes just guessing on the strength of the title.

    Anyway. You know this song from playschool. It’s weird listening to it as an adult. Let’s take a moment to mourn the loss of good novelty songs, in these days of streaming and everything getting it’s 2 minutes.
