Pop! #9: Liechtenstein - How much is that doggie in the window

Liechtenstein from Sweden have been spoiling us with perfect popsongs since 2007. Most recent example is the lovely new single, Meantime. Especially for this project the girls recorded an absolutely wonderful version of the classic How much is that doggie in the window. The song was written by Bob Merill in 1952, and made famous by Patti Page and Lita Roza in the following year. Almost 60 years later, Liechtenstein manage to keep all the charm of those famous recordings but add their own little magic to it, effortlessly owning the song from start to finish.

An interview I did with Liechtenstein in 2008 is still online on my other blog, for those of you who want to find out more about this great band. (Since the interview, Ulrika has taken Naemi's place on the bass.)
