There are a ton of great Three Dog Night songs, and I’ve always been a big fan. Maybe that’s why I’m annoyed that my all-time favorite song by the band is a forgotten oldie. The song “Liar” reached #7 on the hot 100 in 1971 surprising many record execs who knew that Argent had released their version of the song a year earlier and it didn’t go anywhere. But the Three Dog Night cover had an ominous feel to it and fans loved it. Dee Jays loved the song too because it was such a fun song to intro.
Three Dog Night must love it too, because they still perform it at shows to this day.
