Oh, What a Night!

With the new release of the movie, "Jersey Boys," a movie inspired by the long-running hit Broadway musical of the same name which tells the true story of the legendary group "Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons" fame, there seems to be a sort of revival of their timeless music ~ and I, for one, am delighted!! 

Even though they were a tad before my time, I grew up listening to their magnificent music! Both my mom and dad had great taste in music and played their albums frequently (and quite frankly, they are most probably amongst the few parents whose children can say that considering the generational gap) ~ LOL!

"Working My Way Back to You"

 Their music just brings back so many great memories for me. Not only because I held such an appreciation for the earlier music, but their 70's hit songs as well ~  from "Sherry," and "Big Girls Don't Cry," to "December 1963 (Oh What a Night)," and "Who Loves You." As a solo artist, Valli scored number-one hits with the songs "My Eyes Adored You" in 1974 and "Grease" in 1978. 

Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio, who were the original members of The Four Seasons,  were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999.

My brother and I are planning on going to see the movie, "Jersey Boys" in the theater this weekend and I can't wait!

  2. Did you go see the movie ? Sounds like great fun ;o) This wasn't my generation either, but I always thought the music was great! Big Hugs ;o)

    1. Stacy, we are going to see it this weekend instead. I heard it was so good that Clint Eastwood, who directed the movie, actually received a standing ovation from a crowd of patrons while he was out dining! LOOL!!! ;)

      Hugs to you,
