“(I’VE HAD) THE TIME OF MY LIFE” HIT SONGWRITER SAYS NEW BLACK-EYED PEAS SINGLE IS OUT OF THIS WORLD COINCIDENCE FOR SONG THAT’S HAD ‘9, 10, 11 AND 12 LIVES’

“(I’VE HAD) THE TIME OF MY LIFE” HIT SONGWRITER SAYS NEW BLACK-EYED PEAS SINGLE IS OUT OF THIS WORLD COINCIDENCE FOR SONG THAT’S HAD ‘9, 10, 11 AND 12 LIVES’

Oscar Winner Franke Previte ‘Astounded’ By Timing Of Super Group’s

New ‘Cross-Generational’ Fusion of Resilient ‘Dirty Dancing’ Classic into ‘The Time (The Dirty Bit)’

The unveiling today by will.i.am on his social networking site of ”The Time (The Dirty Bit)” as the first single from the Black Eyed Peas’ forthcoming album, The Beginning, is an out-of-this-world coincidence to the writer of the “Dirty Dancing” smash hit “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” whose chorus is the heartbeat of this pulsing new recording.

Franke Previte, who won the Oscar and Golden Globe for writing “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” and cleared the song for the genre-bending supergroup to release their new single, is astounded that the announcement of this explosive new single arrives just a few weeks after he released the original demo recording of “(I’ve Had) the Time of My Life” to raise money for the Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund at Stanford.

Furthering the coincidence surrounding his song, notes Previte, is the re-emergence of Jennifer Grey as a heavily favored contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

“What amazes me most is the timing,” said Previte. “As we’ve started working to fight cancer in Patrick’s memory through the release of the original demos, first it was Jennifer coming back into the public spotlight in a big way on TV, and now the Black Eyed Peas come along and cover it – all in a matter of weeks. The Black Eyed Peas bring a whole new level awareness to our charity efforts that we couldn’t have dreamed of in a million years.

“’(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life’ really is the song that has nine lives. To have a group like the Peas do it gives it Lives 10, 11 and 12. It just reconfirms to me that the song is cross-generational. The song has now crossed over to the next generation in a huge way. There couldn’t be any group, cooler, edgier, and more hip than the Black Eyed Peas to record it.”
