Happy Birthday, Connie Francis

cfrancis1.jpgConnie Francis was born 69 years ago today. She was a popular singer in the late fifties and early sixties and I still love her music even today. All generations have their great performers. Connie Francis belonged to mine, the era of the early sixties when I was in high school. There was no sock hop, party or dance that didn’t feature plenty of her songs. When we went driving around in our jalopies, she was on the radio, singing songs like “Who’s Sorry Now,” “Where the Boys Are” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.”

Happy Birthday Connie! And a very Merry Christmas to you too.

    Yes, Connie is a fantastic singer and a lovely person too. I am a Connie Francis fan for nearly 50 years and her Christmas Album is one of my favorite LP’s. But…she never sang “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree”. That was a Brenda Lee hit!

  2. You’re right. I forgot about Brenda Lee, she too was a great talent of the time period.
