I usually don’t post a song on the weekends but due to my sister’s challenge, I cannot resist doing so. I thought I’d pick some songs I would not post on a regular Song-of-the-Day post. So here I go with a song by Connie Francis from 1961. The 60’s were a time when many artists performed in German (think of The Beatles or even Elvis Presley). I love her voice and her songs were so typical for the 60’s sound.
Schöner fremder Mann is the fourth German single recorded by U. S. entertainer Connie Francis. The song is the German cover version of Francis’ U. S. recording Someone Else’s Boy. Although the original version didn’t chart, it became one of Francis’ biggest international successes, and it is the only song in her repertoire she recorded in eight languages.
