Where the Boys Are is a 1960 Metrocolor and CinemaScope American comedy film directed by Henry Levin and starring Connie Francis, Dolores Hart, Paula Prentiss, George Hamilton, Yvette Mimieux, Jim Hutton, and Frank Gorshin. It was written by George Wells based on the 1960 novel of the same name by Glendon Swarthout. The screenplay concerns four college co-eds who spend spring break in Fort Lauderdale. The title song "Where the Boys Are" was sung by Connie Francis, who also co-starred in a supporting role.
Francis' early- and mid-'60s films may have their staunch band of supporters, but few would go as far as to hail them as enduring art. That same judgment and then some goes for the music she sang on their soundtracks. There's a bit of rock & roll here and there (sung none too convincingly), but much of it is typically sentimental musical comedy/drama fare.
Francis recorded the record version of Where the Boys Are on 18 October 1960 in a New York City recording session with Stan Applebaum arranging and conducting. The same session also came up with Francis' hits Many Tears Ago and Breakin' in a Brand New Broken Heart as well as the songs On the Outside Looking In, Happy New Year Baby, and Mein Herz weiß genau, was es will, which all would remain unreleased until the 1980s.
Follow the Boys" is a 1963 romantic ballad written to serve as the theme song for the 1963 comedy film of the same name: the song was introduced in the film by its top billed star: Connie Francis, for whom "Follow the Boys" would become a Top 20 hit single

Where The Boys Are. Artist: Connie Francis. Album: The Very Best Of Connie Francis - Connie's 21 Biggest Hits, 1963. Connie Francis quotes. I was never encouraged to do it and I played the accordion, which I hated. I wish I had taken piano because I definitely would have written more songs of my own, but I didn't.
Good album y Connie Francis. If you like Connie you will love this.
