    British singer LITA ROZA has died, aged 82.

    Roza became the first female star to score a number one hit in the U.K. with her single (How Much Is) That Doggie In The Window? - which topped the charts in March 1953.

    But she refused to sing the novelty song ever again - saying in a 2004 interview: "I sang it once - just one take - and vowed I would never sing it again. It just wasn't my style."

    She was also known for her ballad performances with jazz group The Ted Heath Band in the 1950s.

    She gave her last public performance on 28 November 2002, when she sang for a station in her native Liverpool, England; Radio Merseyside.

    Roza passed away on Thursday (14Aug08). Further details about her death have yet to be disclosed.

    How very sad

    I remember Lita very well and especially her No. 1 Hit.....who doesn't remember that catchy little song? Even now people still sing it. I visited the Liverpool World Museum on Wednesday and was fascinated by the exhibition centered around Liverpool's music. Lita was featured of course.
    Condolences to her family.

    How many males over the age of 60 remember Lita Rosa? Dark eyed ,black haired and sensuous, she was a beautiful singer who embodied class,that Doggy in the Window was but a small part in her repertoire and for me she will always be remembered as singer who promised much . She will be missed.
