Song of the Day #728

Song of the Day: Sherry, words and music by Bob Gaudio, was recorded by The Four Seasons and became a #1 Hit on this date in 1962 (it was a #1 R&B hit too). And so begins our 10-day tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, which, of course, will also coincide with a change from one season to another. Listen here to an audio clip of this nostalgic hit. Having seen the Tony-winning Best Musical of 2006, "Jersey Boys," I can say that the moments leading up to the performance of this song in that production, and the performance itself, moved me to tears. It's a wonderful pop song in a wonderfully entertaining and poignant musical.

"Jersey Boys"--yet ANOTHER Broadway show that got its start right here in San Diego.

Hey, Peri, that's great to know! When are the San Diego "Tony's" on... and do they actually call them that? Is it a branch of the American Theatre Wing?
