Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool by Connie Francis

Connie Francis’ career was not going well. Ten consecutive singles had failed to chart and after one last recording session, it was off to college leaving the music business behind. She reached back to 1923 for “Who’s Sorry Now” and before you knew it, she had a huge hit single , which peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1958. She almost reached the top of the charts in early 1959 when “My Happiness” spent two weeks at number two

It was not until 1960 that she had her first of three number one singles. “Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool toped the Hot 100 for two weeks beginning June27, 1960.

New York University’s loss was American Music’s gain as she placed a total of 57 songs on the Hot 100, 1958-1969.
