Lita Roza's version[edit]

"Lita's recording is widely known as the most elusive original record of a #1."

Can someone explain what this tries to convey?--Son of Somebody 15:26, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, it's pure bollocks, and has now been removed.

That Pink Flamingoes bit[edit]

"It is played in the film Pink Flamingos during the film's infamous final scene, wherein Divine consumes dog feces immediately after a poodle defecates", says the article. This part was tagged with {{fact}}, but I deleted it, as it was utterly pointless. All anyone needs to do to confirm the song's presence in the scene is to play the movie's final scene and listen. That's a valid citation in itself. (The next sentence, about Waters' claim as to whether Divine was actually eating the real thing, is another story.) -- Captain Disdain 19:55, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Other movies[edit]

I think it is also played in Come back little Sheba. and in all these movies http://www.imdb.com/SearchSongs?for=how+much+is+that+doggie —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rakunus (talkcontribs) 00:39, 9 June 2008 (UTC)


Actual song title?[edit]

What is the actual published title of the song? Really. For sure. I've seen about ten different versions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.247.165.49 (talk) 01:51, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

That's because it's been released so many times with so many titles... The title as printed on the very first Mercury Records label for Patti Page's release was simply "The Doggie In the Window", as shown here (45 rpm) and here (78 rpm). The same track was released on Mercury's "Oriole Records" label in the U.K. two months later as "(How Much Is) That Doggie In the Window" (no question mark), as shown here. Lita Roza's release also bore the same title, shown here. Grollτech (talk) 22:41, 27 February 2013 (UTC)


Rick-rolled?[edit]

What does "rick-rolled" mean? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.1.95.200 (talk) 21:15, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Not sure why you asked (presumably an old version of this page said something about it), but see Rickrolling. Grollτech (talk) 22:41, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Bioshock[edit]

This song is also featured in the PC game Bioshock. searching for it on youtube quickly tells you that. (part 1 or 2 or both i do not know)

Ingrid Reuterskiöld[edit]

It was said—but uncited—in this article that Ingrid Reuterskiöld was an uncredited writer of the song. If there's a reference for that somewhere, it would be a useful addition, but I couldn't find anything authoritative. Merrill is still the only writer credited in the ASCAP database. --Walor (talk) 15:32, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
