The original movie 'Dirty Dancing' is now 30-years-old and recently had a reboot that aired on ABC, which received some mixed reviews from fans of the original picture. Singer-songwriter Franke Previte, who penned two of the hit songs from the movie, '(I've Had) The Time of My Life' & 'Hungry Eyes,' sat down with FOX's Tommy Byrne to discuss how he wrote the songs, what he thought about the remake and the art of songwriting. Previte also discusses how he is raising money for his friend, the late Patrick Swayze and how you can donate.
