Connie Francis was recently interviewed at her home for a Japanese TV program "Song To Soul" which was televised Sunday, July 2nd at 11:00 GMT on BS-TBS. She discussed her 1962 Top 10 Hit "VACATION" among numerous others!
Connie has stated that "when "Vacation" was brought to me, they only had 'V-a-c-a-t-i-o-n in the summer sun.' That's all they wrote. I wrote the rest of the lyrics and didn't even take credit for it." http://www.bs-tbs.co.jp/songtosoul/
