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.
