Oh, What A Night

late December back in '63...

If you recognize this lyric, you'll know it's from a song called December 1963 (Oh, What A Night) by The Four Seasons.

It remains a popular dance floor favorite that reached #1 on the charts on this date in 1976.  The original title was December 5, 1933 and it's lyric spoke about the repeal of (U.S.) alcohol prohibition on that date but was changed to the lyric we know now at the behest of lead singer Frankie Valli and the group's then lyricist Judy Parker (wife of keyboard player & song composer Bob Gaudio.)

In a rarity, Valli shared lead vocals on this tune with the group's drummer Gerry Polci and bassist Don Ciccone.  A remixed version was released & re-charted in 1994 and with the combined number of weeks each release spent on the charts totaling 54, December 1963 is the longest charting single in the history of Billboard's Hot 100.

Soundtrack For Today:  68 'RKO  (What a very special time for me!)
