Connie Francis Fallin'

Rock and Roll

Connie Francis  a lady who sings so beautifully – straight from the heart. She was born Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero in 1938 and is one of America’s top-charting female vocalists.  Born near Newark, New Jersey, Francis began performing at the age of four as both a singer and an accordion player. She eventually changed her stage name name and left the accordion behind.

“Fallin’” was written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield  as a follow-up to “Stupid Cupid.”“Fallin’” peaked at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1958. The song has been used in TV commercials, including a 2008 one for Special K (in the U.K.) and a 2012 one for Target.

Here are the lyrics to “Fallin'” by Connie Francis:

I got to feelin’ I’m a’fallin’
Like a star up in the blue,
Like I was fallin’ off Niagara
In a paddle-boat canoe
I got to feelin’ I’m a’fallin’
And it’s all because of you

Like I was walkin’ on a tightrope,
Swingin’ in the breeze,
And though I try to keep my balance
Yeah I weaken in the knees
I got to feelin’ I’m a’fallin’
Lover, help me please

Like a leaf falls from a branch,
Like a rock-slide avalanche,
Like the rain on a stormy day,
I never thought I’d fall this way

I thought that love could never touch me,
Yeah I was ridin’ high
And then my ivory tower toppled
And I tumbled from the sky
I got to feelin’ I’m a’fallin’
Lover, you’re the reason why

Like Goliath when he met his foe,
Like the walls of Jericho,
Like Delilah’s home in town
When Samson tore it down

I thought that love could never touch me,
Yeah I was ridin’ high
And then my ivory tower toppled
And I tumbled from the sky
I got to feelin’ I’m a’fallin’
And you’re the reason why,
Ooh you’re the reason why,
Yeah you’re the reason why,
Baby, lover you’re the reason why
Yeah you’re the reason why,
Uh lover, you’re the reason why

  3. There’s a song from the 70s from Candi Station called Young Hearts Run Free and I could swear that the piano riff on Scale it Back is a sloewd down sample from the chorus of that song. Is she in the rock and roll hall of fame?
