Heartbeat It's a Love Beat: World's Worst iPod

June 22, 2016

From the Kitty collection

Long before tehre was Justin Bieber, there were dreamy teen heartthrobs that made the girls swoon.

In the early 1970's, we had Donnie Osmond, Michael Jackson, and.....Tony DeFranco.

The DeFranco Family was made up of a group of brothers and sisters, who were better looking than they were singers. In fact, Tony DeFranco didn't sing very well at all. But the girls liked him, and that was enough to get the group's song "Heartbeat, it's a Love Beat" all the way up to #3 in 1973.

Here they are on a variety show, being introduced the legendary Jack Benny.

Wait. What?
