Song: “How Much Is That Doggie In the Window?”
Performed by: Patti Page
Album: single – released by Mercury Records as 70070 (1952/53)
This is a weird one, I know. But it kept coming up this weekend. I was re-watching Spaced on Netflix, and this song features prominently in the episode “Leaves” from S2, when Colin runs away to that creepy old woman’s house. Then, I was watching S1 of American Horror Story (great show!), and the song came up there, too.
What amazed me is that, not only is this a novelty song that actually exists, but that it has endured to the point of still being used on television shows in the late 20th/early 21st Centuries. Why this song wasn’t lost to history, I have no idea, but props for sticking it out, Song!
Today’s Song of the Day is “How Much Is That Doggie In the Window?” performed by Patti Page. Enjoy! And if you have a dog (or dogs), give it a hug for me! 🙂
