- - - - - - -Three Dog Night's song "Liar" made it's Top 40 debut on this day (7/17) back in 1971. Three Dog Night dominated the early 70's, with 17 Top 40 hits between 3/1970 and 8/1975. Add 4 Hits in 1969 and you get 21 Top 40 hits in under 6.5 years. And every single they released made the Top 40. That's pretty impressive.
"Liar" peaked at #7, one of 8 Top 10's..... It was written by Russ Ballard of Argent, best known for their hit "Hold Your Head Up". Ballard also wrote "Since You've Been Gone" which was a hit for Rainbow. And "Winning" which scored for Santana. And "I Know There's Something Going On" which was a post-ABBA hit for Anni-Frid Lyngstad. Hmmmm...... I didn't most of that until I started this post revision....
But this was supposed to be about Three Dog Night.
