It's June, and time for my monthly feature for 5 on Friday -- The Hit Makers.

Once a month I'm going to feature the songs that launched careers. I'll be looking at different musical styles and the groups or singers from those styles who I love the best.

This month, let's look ahead to Father's Day. Here are five of my favorite male vocalists who are also dads.

1 - All or Nothing at All -- Frank Sinatra -- 1943 (was released in 43, although originally recorded in 39)

Father to daughters Nancy and Tina, and son Frank Jr.

2 - Heartbreak Hotel -- Elvis Presley -- 1956

Father to daughter Lisa Marie 

3 - Whole Lotta Love -- Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin -- 1969

Father to sons Karac, Logan and Jesse Lee (Karac passed away at age five)

4 - You've Made Me So Very Happy -- David Clayton Thomas of Blood Sweat and Tears -- 1969

Father to daughter Ashleigh

5 - Time is Running Out -- Matthew Bellamy -- 2003

Father to son Bingham
