Condolences to family and friends of Patti Page.
OMG - catch me off guard as 1 of those times I assumed she was already dead!
Doesn’t anyone remember her “How Much is that Doggie in the Window?”
We still have sheet music; mom must’ve bought it or something.
How Much Is That Doggie In The Window - Patti Page
A truly classic artist from a great era.
Yeah, I remember listening to both versions on the radio.
I wonder what Lane Kiffin’s version of the Tennessee Waltz sounds like.
She was the best and my favorite. I would see her on TV and marvel at her delivery and voice. She had a way of flicking her hand that was special as she was singing.
Probably something like this.
