MARK'S BEST MOVIE SONGS EVER (1955-99) COUNTDOWN ... NO. 163 WHERE THE BOYS ARE--CONNIE FRANCIS (1961, "Where The Boys Are") Co-written by the team of Neil Sedaka and the late Howard Greenfield, "Where The Boys Are" was the title song from a movie that starred young actresses Dolores Hart, Yvette Mimieux and Paula Prentiss as college students on spring break in Fort Lauderdale, the spring break capital of the world at that time. They get involved with meeting boys from various other colleges and they encounter different challenges throughout the movie. Connie Francis, who sang this No. 4 hit and was a star in the pre-Beatles era of the rock era, had a supporting role in the movie that also featured a young, tanned George Hamilton. Thoughts, memories? Enjoy!

This one takes me back a few years. “Close your eyes and you can hear her even now. It's 1960 and you're parked at the Steak n' Shake in your red and white Chevy convertible and on the radio, Connie Francis is singing "Where the Boys Are." It's a love song to a time and a place. And as you tip the curb girl a dime, you close your eyes, and dream about pointing that Chevy right down Route 45 to Fort Lauderdale.” Roger Ebert

The term Rock and Roll now has at least two different meanings, both in common useage referring to the first wave of music that originated in the U.S.A. in the 1950's and would later develop into the more encompassing international style. Known as Rock Music, and as a term simply synomynous with the rock music and culture in the broad sense. For the purpose of differentation this deals with the first definition. In the earliest Rock N Roll of the late 1940's and early 1950's , either the Piano, or the Saxaphone, was often the Lead instrument, but these were generally replaced or supplemented by Guitar in the middle 1950's. The beat is generally , essentially, a Blue Rythem with an assentuated backbeat, the latter almost always provided by a Snare Drum. Classic Rock N Roll is usually played with one or two Electric Guitars. (One Lead, One Rythem)a String Bass or (after the mid 1950's) an Electric Bass Guitar, and a Drum Kit. Beyond simply a musical style Rock N Roll as seen in movies and on TV influenced, ...

I was watching HBO's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony the other night, so I started counting all of the Hall of Fame performers I have seen. In all, I have seen 27 HOF acts, including The Who, Police, the Rolling Stones, Simon and Garfunkel, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Ricky Nelson, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, the Four Seasons, The Everly Brothers, The Jackson 5, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Blondie, Heart and Smokey Robinson. I can't believe though that legendary singers like Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, the Three Dog Night, Gloria Estefan, Peter, Paul & Mary, John Denver, Johnny Rivers, Johnny Mathis, Connie Francis, Chicago, Dionne Warwick, Lionel Richie, The Carpenters, Jim Croce, Helen Reddy, Kenny Rogers and Olivia Newton-John are not in the Rock Hall of Fame. There is a heavy bias against women in the HOF.

Observe the mouth movements of those who speak English well and try to imitate them. When you are watching television, observe the mouth movements of the speakers. Repeat what they are saying, while imitating the intonation and rhythm of their speech. ii. Until you learn the correct intonation and rhythm of English, slow your speech down. If you speak too quickly, and with the wrong intonation and rhythm, native speakers will have a hard time understanding you. Don't worry about your listener getting impatient with your slow speech -- it is more important that everything you say be understood. iii. Listen to the 'music' of English. Do not use the 'music' of your native language when you speak English. Each language has its own way of 'singing'. iv. Use the dictionary.

Random thought. Maybe I'm just "old fashioned". But I really wish Oahu had an old diner with those little spin stools at a long counter where you can get a good cup of coffee and booths on the side. With mini jukeboxes on the counter where you can find Connie Francis, The Mills Brothers and other wonderful songs of days past at your fingertips. Oh, and if they serve fresh pancakes and bisquits with gravy. That's tops too. Just sayin'. ;). Sigh...

Is there any cooler number of likes? 1,234,321 likes, though it would be beyond lovely in it's massiveness, somehow falls short of 12,321's panache, and 123,454,321 likes would be… well, who are we kidding? I'll wager that even Connie Francis hasn't that many. No, 12,321 is going to be THE cool number of likes that I will ever realistically receive, and it's the coolest number by far anyway, and I'll be darned if I risk missing it's magical arrival by falling asleep.
Singing a praise and worship song."The Light of a Million Mornings", while preparing my ingredients for a non-pork molo balls. Feeling light and hopeful everytime i am singing songs for the Lord. Before my teenage years, my sister and I used to imitate the voices of Anita Bryant and Connie Francis. Now tho i can't have that voice anymore due to aging vocal chords, its already a pleasure and delight to sing songs of love, faith, hope. I know it makes our Lord smile and HE answers it with amazing graces.

I almost never know the musical guest on When are they going to have Barbara Lynn or Connie Francis?
This song, written by the same guy who wrote "Wild Thing," was originally offered to Connie Francis, who turned it down, considering it too risque. It was a hit twice, exactly 10 years apart, by two other artists. The artist who performed the first version turned out to be a one-hit-wonder, though it was a top ten hit and earned the artist a Grammy nomination. The second was a crossover pop and country hit, hitting the Billboard top ten. This artist has had a number of pop and country hits. It would be a sin if nobody got this one.
Lady Macbeth, Bonnie Parker, and if they ever do a bio of Emmeline Pankhurst or Connie Francis, I'd be first in the queue! x

If You Were Born Today, December 12 You have a distinctly dual nature that, at your best, makes you versatile, and at your worst, downright confused (and confusing!). While a great lover of peace and harmony, you are also determined and fiery. While idealistic, you mostly have your feet on the ground. In relationships, the need for partnering and cooperating is strong, but freedom also matters to you. You are a natural counsellor, offering excellent advice. There is usually quite a bit of drama and colorful emotion in your relationships, whether it's because you bring this to the table or attract these kinds of people. Famous people born today: Frank Sinatra, Edward Koch, Connie Francis, Jennifer Connelly, Bridget Hall, Bob Barker, Dionne Warwick.

I'm still a movie Fanatic today. 5) My first role model growing up was Joan of arc. 6) I wish I knew how to speak these languages; Spanish, Italian, and French. 7) I can recite almost every line from these movies, Matilda, The Phantom of the opera, and Joan of arc. 8 ) I love perf ...

We've scheduled a date for the beginning of our next grand music special, The Top 100 Female Artists of the Rock Era*. It will kick off November 21 with much fanfare and celebration! This countdown tracks the top solo female performers and all-female groups of the Rock Era. Note: It does not include a female's performance in a group, unless of course that group is an all-female group. That project would be named something such as The Top 100 Women of the Rock Era. When the Rock Era was in its infancy, you had Easy Listening artists such as Patti Page, Connie Francis, the McGuire Sisters, Gale Storm and Kay Starr contributing songs to the popular culture. Soon, Brenda Lee burst onto the scene, and music was beginning to change. Girl groups soon became the hot trend, with the Shirelles starting in the early part of the 1960's, followed closely by the Crystals, the Chiffons, the Ronettes, and the Supremes. Then in 1964, the Beatles changed music forever. We make that point often because its important ...
