Connie Francis Who’s Sorry Now

Connie Francis Who's Sorry Now

Pop and Jazz Standards

This song was one of her father’s favorites – an oldie, written by Tin Pan Alley songwriters Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, and Ted Snyder. It was originally recorded in 1923 by Isham Jones & His Orchestra.  The song was also featured in the Marx Brothers film A Night in Casablanca in 1946. Anyway, Connie Francis was considering an end to her singing career, as she had been in the business for several years and did not have any hits. So she decided to record “Who’s Sorry Now?” in 1957.  It was promoted on American Bandstand, and, early in 1958, the song became an international hit, going to #4 on the U.S. Pop Chart and #1 on the U.K. singles chart. Her record became a million seller.

Here are the lyrics to “Who’s Sorry Now” by Connie Francis:

“Who’s sorry now? Who’s sorry now?
Whose heart is achin’ for breakin’ each vow?
Who’s sad and blue, who’s cryin’ too?
Just like I cried over you

Right to the end, just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way, now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now

Right to the end, just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way, now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now”

If you are interested in other songs by Connie Francis: “Fallin’” and “Where the Boys Are.”

For More Golden Oldies Music

The Daily Doo Wop Rec Room has daily featured doo wop music, rock and roll hits, R&B, or rockabilly songs that were hits during the first era of rock and roll (that is, from about 1952 until the British invasion in 1964). After a song is featured, it then goes into the juke box. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Every weekend, there is a Golden Oldies Juke Box Saturday Night, and the juke box is full of song requests from the 1950s and 1960s.
