Who Loves You - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons 1975

Obsessed with this song this week, and indeed anything related to the
"Jersey Boys" and Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons at present.

I saw the musical "Jersey Boys" a few years back, and the movie twice over the last few weeks.
Once I made peace with the film being quite different to the musical, and the songs not
translating off the screen as well as they do in live theatre, I really enjoyed the movie.

Unfortunately, you don't get to hear much of the song in the film. 
Perhaps because the film is based on the original Four Seasons, and "Who Loves You"
wasn't released until 1975 when Frankie Valli was the only original member still performing. 
Although, original Four Seasons band member Bob Gaudio continued to write
and produce songs for the Four Seasons including "Who Loves You" and
"December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" and Frankie Valli's solo career.

Who Loves You - 1975

Who Loves You - 2014 Jersey Boys Movie version

It's the 1970's version for me. Great tune!!


  1. I haven't seen the musical or the flick, but I did see the man himself live here in Perth a few years ago (the Four Seasons were blow-ins, but Frankie was the real deal). He could still hit those high notes!

    1. How fantastic to see Frankie Valli live Kylie! Was it a great concert? So many great songs. The musical is fantastic if you get a chance to see it when it comes back to Australia.x

  2. I was 13 or 14 when "Sherry" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" came out. The Four Seasons were very much a part of my early teen years. By the time I was an older teen, the era of the simple love song was over, and I was into The Doors and Jimi Hendrix.

    1. Hi Dana! Its funny how tastes evolve over time. I have always been a fan of pop, soft rock (not a hardcore metal fan) and I also really like Motown which is one of my favourite stations at the moment.

    2. I think you'd really enjoy a Coursera course I took a few months ago. It's called History of Rock.
