Connie Francis sings German Favorites is a studio album of German songs recorded by U. S. Entertainer Connie Francis.


Unlike the other installments in Francis' series of "Favorites"-albums, Connie Francis sings German Favorites does not focus on the traditional songs of a certain country or ethnical group. Beginning in 1960 with the overwhelmig success of Die Liebe ist ein seltsames Spiel, a German version of her U. S. # 1 hit Everybody's Somebody's Fool, Francis had established herself in Germany as a respected performer of contemporary German music. By the time of the album's release Francis had enjoyed six # 1 hits on the German charts. Hence, Connie Francis sings German Favorites is more a typical Greatest Hits Album in the Pop Music genre.

Originally scheduled for release in late spring 1963, the album wasn't released until January 1964 because of the delayed release of Francis' 1962 album Connie Francis sings Award Winning Motion Picture Hits which had been scheduled for release in June 1962 but didn't hit the shops until May 1963.[1]
