Day 12: A song from your preteen year

Four Seasons – “Oh What a Night”

I remember when this came out, and I was listening to it on my AM radio.  I’d try to sing it, but could never remember the words just right.  (That’s an on-going problem.)  I was re-united with the song a couple of years ago watching the movie, Jersey Boys.  I really like this song.

There’s a lot going on.  As always with The Four Seasons, there’s a lot of vocal range with all the singers taking their parts.  But dig the falsetto voice on the bass player (“And I felt a rush like a rolling ball of thunder / Spinning my head around and taking my body under”); plus, just after, the groovy base lines he’s plugging in!  Cool.

  1. Does this mean something you loved the year before you turn into a teenage? Well if I remember getting AC/DC’s then new album Blow Up Your Video which I really wanted at the time and the single was Heatseeker
