Patti Page’s cover version of “The Tennessee Waltz, composed by Pee Wee King, was #1 for thirteen weeks in 1950. Here is Patti singing her second #1 hit live in 1950.
Now please contrast to Patti singing her biggest hit again in at age 79 — still in fine voice — below.
Now please enjoy “How Much is That Doggie In The Window” sung by Patti Page in 1953 and composed by Bob Merrill.
I have got to be one of the biggest Bette Davis fans around and “Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte” is one of her films that I have watched dozens of times and never tire of. IMHO it is a classic. After watching one of the original film trailers above from 1964, please listen to Patti Page’s 1965 recording of the haunting theme song from the movie. Listening to it brings back the movie scenes vividly in my mind.
Thank you Patti Page for you musical legacy. R.I.P.
