Frank Previte, the lead singer of Franke and the Knockouts, co-wrote the hit song “Time of My Life” for the iconic film “Dirty Dancing” in the late 1980s.

In a 2020 interview with American Songwriter, Previte revealed how he came up with the song after being asked by the film’s music supervisor to write a 7-minute-long song for the movie.

At first, Previte was hesitant, but he had an epiphany while driving down the Garden State Parkway and created the song that we all know and love today.

The song’s success was felt not only in the film but also on the charts, as it reached number one on the Adult Contemporary and Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Even today, fans from all over the world continue to recreate the iconic dance scene associated with the song.

In an interview with Patrick Swayze, the late actor who starred in the movie, Previte shared that Swayze had told him that the song changed everything for the movie and that it was the reason why the ending was so awesome. The song gave the film a new life and has continued to be a beloved part of pop culture.
