Big Girls Don’t Cry 45 by The Four Seasons

October 14, 2011

The Four Seasons hit the big time with their hit single, “Sherry,” which topped the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Single Chart for five weeks. So what do you do for an encore? The answer is easy. You issue “Big Girls Don’t Cry” October 20, 1962, and have it top the singles chart for another five weeks.

Frankie Valli and the boys had found a formula that would serve them well for decades. Write a catchy up-tempo melody, layer in some harmonies, and have Valli’s falsetto float above the mix.

While the supporting cast has changed down through the years, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are still on the road and possibly comming to a town near you.
