Song of the Day: Connie Francis, “Lipstick On Your Collar”

Concetta Franconero, better known to pop music fans as Connie Francis, was born on this day in 1937. She’s a singer, actor, and author who was most popular in the late ’50’s and early ’60’s. “Lipstick On Your Collar” was written by Edna Lewis and George Goehring which Connie took to #5 on the Hot 100 in 1959.

  1. I have a lot of time for Connie Francis. She has such a diverse discography and recorded flawlessly in many languages. If memory serves she was the first female to hit #1 on The Hot 100. Thanks for reminding me about her as I used to listen to her quite a lot but somehow got away from it.

    1. By the time of the British Invasion she was completely gone from Top 40 radio. It doesn’t seem fair, especially with her being the first woman to top the Hot 100 (I saw that, too). Not only was she a stellar performer, she was also quite attractive. She was too good to have been forgotten. And this is why I do music on the blog: There’s been so much great music that was made and is being forgotten…
