This record perfectly illustrates that point. Connie Francis is saying, HEY my heart is freshly broken! Leave me alone for now. It's ok for me to have a broken heart. Eventually I'll get over it. Don't worry about me, I can handle it. It's just life. Shit happens. Let me have my feelings and leave me alone.
I love it.
I also love this production. Following in the footsteps of Les Paul & Mary Ford, Connie's doing a lovely duet with her overdubbed self. Say what you will about Connie Francis, but she DEFINITELY had her own distinctive style. No matter what genre she was dabbling in at the time or what language she was singing, you can always identify a Connie Francis record.
People don't seem to talk about Connie much these days, but did you know that Connie Francis recorded records in 10 different languages and was at one time simultaneously voted the #1 vocalist in nearly a dozen countries? That's quite an accomplishment. Connie is a survivor and thriver in multiple ways and she'll be celebrating her 76th birthday in just a few weeks.
So cozy up with Connie and her brand new broken heart.
