    Frankie Lyman’s songs were some of the first I listened to when I was a child and first became aware of music on the radio. I loved it ever since.

    I agree, such a great voice. I always end up watching “why do fools fall in love” when it’s on. Larenz Tate’s lip-synching is laughable, but the story and the music keeps me engaged everytime.

    i also don’t favor the film mel.

    and i don’t think they should attempt to make another!

    however, it would be nice if they made a documentary on him.

    i’ve seen short docs on the teenagers, but we need one just for frankie

    That’s a really good idea! A documentary about Frankie. It really does need to be done; I’ve seen the shots.

    My All time favorite is like Melissa said, “Why do fools fall in love.” I think it is because I identify so closely to being a fool.

    ” why do birds sing so gay?
    and lovers await the break of day?
    why do they fall in love?

    why does rain fall from above?
    why do fools fall in love
    why do they fall in love?”
