Video Valentine: Heartbeat (It's a Lovebeat) (1973)

The DeFranco Family, from Canada, had a modest run of success on the American charts in the early-to-mid 70's, but seemed to peak with their first hit, "Heartbeat (It's a Lovebeat)", which topped out at #3 on the Hot 100, and went to #1 on Cashbox's charts.

Here's the DeFrancos, from an appearance on The Mike Douglas Show:

Today, Tony, the lead singer, is in real estate. Whodathunk?

I liked this tune! I know some may pigeonhole it as "bubblegum pop" but I don't care. I fun tune, is a fun tune!

I have heard that NONE of the De Francos continued in show biz after their day in the spotlight was over. Personally I think that's a good thing.

Yeah, I think they all went into other fields, as Tony did. Good thing, indeed.
