Connie Francis (1960-1964)
Connie Francis (born Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero, December 12, 1938) is an American pop singer and top-charting female vocalist of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Although her chart success waned in the second half of the 1960s, Francis remained a top concert draw. Francis recorded seven more albums of “favorites” between 1960 and 1964, including Jewish, German, Spanish and Irish, among others. These albums marked Francis’ transition from the youth-oriented rock ‘n’ roll music to adult contemporary music, which George Franconero, Sr. had realized to be necessary if his daughter wanted to pursue a successful longterm career in music. Nevertheless, Francis continued to record singles aimed at the youth-oriented market. Among her top-ten hits on the Hot 100 were “Breakin’ in a Brand New Broken Heart” (1961, number 7), “When the Boy in Your Arms (Is the Boy in Your Heart)” (1961, number 10), “Second Hand Love” (1962, number 7), and “Where the Boys Are” (1961, number 4). The last became her signature tune and was also the theme song of Francis’ first motion picture of the same name. The movie also introduced the concept of spring break, as the once sleepy town of Fort Lauderdale became the hotspot for college students on their spring vacation in the wake of the movie’s success.
