Every UK Number One Song: (How Much Is That) Doggie In The Window?


“(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.

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
