Advert: McDonald’s – 1955 Burger
Music: Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers – Why Do Fools Fall in Love?
McDonald’s diner-style 1955 burger has already been a huge hit in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, and has now arrived in the UK. The wonderful Why Do Fools Fall in Love by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers wasn’t actually released until 1956, but we can probably overlook that. The song was featured in the 50s-set movie American Graffiti, and has been covered by the likes of Diana Ross and Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons. Frankie Lymon was only 13 when Why Do Fools Fall in Love first hit the top of the charts. Tragically, he lived a very short life, dying of a heroin overdose aged just 25.
