    Interview #3 Whatever Happened To Franke and the Knockouts – We Asked Their Lead Singer Franke Previte
    Franke Previte co-wrote two of the biggest songs in the eighties with “Hungry Eyes” recorded by Eric Carmen and and “(I've had) The Time of My Life” sung by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. The latter won an Academy Award. Previte has success before that with his band Franke and the Knockouts and their Top 10 hit “Sweetheart.” CLIP 002

    Previte has a new box set and sells his version on “Dirty Dancing Demos” with proceeds going to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in the name of his old friend Patrick Swayze who passed from the disease in September 2009 at 57. His latest project is the stage show called “Calling All Divas” which follows four very different singers searching for stardom. - by John Beaudin

  • Franke & The Knockouts Sweetheart

    4:13

    Franke and the Knockouts was a pop rock band, formed in New Jersey, USA and fronted by singer/songwriter Franke Previte.

    Franke and the Knockouts were signed by Millennium Records in 1981 and had three U.S. Top 40 singles and two Top 50 albums. The group's biggest hit, Sweetheart, was written by Previte along with Knockouts guitarist Billy Elworthy, peaking at #10 in the U.S. in June 1981. They also wrote and released the original versions of Eric Carmen's 1987 hit single Hungry Eyes as well as the song (I've Had) The Time of My Life, (both of which were featured in the 1987 film Dirty Dancing), and it would also earn Previte an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

    After Millennium folded, the band switched to MCA Records in 1984. The lone album released with MCA did not share the success of their previous work and the group disbanded in 1986.

    Lyrics:
    I know, baby, it's hard to be strong
    To take the good with the bad
    And don't think you're alone
    'Cause I know all your sad goodbyes
    'Cause I've been there before
    To help you dry your eyes

    Sweetheart
    Who loved you from the start
    Who treats you like a star
    Oooooh, sweetheart

    Who loves you, baby
    Who loves you wrong or right
    'Cause you're the spark in my life
    Yeaaah, day and night

    And when trouble a-keeps on knockin'
    Down your door
    Just call on me, babe
    And it won't be 'round no more

    Sweetheart, who loved you from the start
    Yeah, baby
    Who treats you like a star
    Oooooh, sweetheart

    [Instrumental Interlude]

    Oooooh no, yes, I know
    No matter how long
    Why I'll be by your side
    Yes, singing this song

    Sweetheart, who loved you from the start
    Yeah, baby
    Who treats you like a star
    Oooooh, sweetheart
    You're my sweetheart...
    (My sweetheart,
    You'll always be my sweetheart)

  • Franke & the Knockouts - Without You

    3:48

    I've always loved this one - perfectly captures the sound of a dreary, drizzly autumn day... and i just had the first one of those all year, so while picking my playlist for the day, this came up and i knew that it was going to be today's upload.

    The biggest surprise about this album beyond the hit single, is that it's much harder rock than you'd ever expect - i bet a lot of soft rock fans were very disappointed back in '82...

    Lyrics:
    With your cigarettes rolled under your sleeve
    You strike a pose against your car
    With your shades on your head
    Tryin' to look real mean
    You watch the girls cruise the Boulevard

    With your favorite sounds on the stereo
    Just thundering out the rhythm of rock and roll

    CHORUS
    You're so cool - you're nodoby's
    You're nobody's fool
    You're so cool - you're nodoby's
    You're nobody's fool

    A renegade with a four on the floor
    You brag that you never lose
    And a young girl's heart doesn't stand a chance
    When you're flashin' those baby blues

    With your favorite sounds on the stereo
    Just thundering out the rhythm of rock and roll

    CHORUS
