A CLINT EASTWOOD FILM
Performed by Miss Frankie Nolan and the Romans, the background vocals are provided by The Four Lovers, later to become The Four Seasons
One of The Four Seasons’ biggest hits, “Sherry” is the band's first nationally released single and their first #1 hit, reaching the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on September 15, 1962
Big Girls Don't Cry reaches the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in October of 1962 and holds the spot for five weeks. With this song, The Four Seasons become the first rock-era act to hit the top spot on the Hot 100 with their first two chart entries
Their third #1 hit in a row, “Walk Like a Man” eventually goes on to become one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's “500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.”
Originally written as a folk song, “Dawn” takes just four weeks to reach #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart
The Four Seasons’ fourth #1 hit, “Rag Doll” was inspired by a waif with a grubby face who hurriedly cleaned Guadio’s windshield, hoping for spare change (Gaudio gave her a five dollar bill).
Written by Sandy Lizner and Denny Randell, this song tells a story a man who cheats on his girlfriend only to realize after she’s gone how much he loves her.
Released as the official followup to "Working My Way Back to You," it is the first hit with new full-time bassist/bass vocalist Joe Long
Originally recorded in the early ‘60s by female soul singer Cholli Maye, “Cry For Me” is one of Frankie's collaborations with Bob Gaudio as a solo artist
The single was Frankie Valli's first #1 hit as a solo artist. Its success triggered a revival of interest in recordings by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons
Recorded 13 years after the release of “Sherry,” “Who Loves You” reestablished The Four Seasons’ popularity and reached #3 on the US Billboard Hot 100, where it spent 20 weeks, longer than any other Four Seasons single
The song was originally written about the repeal of Prohibition and titled "December 5th, 1933," but Frankie wanted to go in a different direction and requested the lyrics be changed. It became a nostalgic celebration of teenage love and reached #1 on both the UK singles chart and the US Billboard Hot 100.
