Forgotten Music -- Patti Page
Miss Patti Page, the Singin' Rage is still with us, but most people under 50 probably don't remember her. Those over 50 don't likely think about her much. But in the early '50s she was indeed the Singin' Rage, with songs like "Tennesse Waltz," which must have been #1 for months. One of my favorites was "Mr. and Mississippi." I was also quite fond of "Detour." One of her big hits was a novelty song about a doggie in a window. This one's probably not forgotten, and you might curse me for reminding you of it. But you'll never curse me for reminding you of the Singin' Rage.
