In 1975, Jersey boy Frankie Valli had a new lineup for his band the Four Seasons and they hit the scene with the visceral album Who Loves You, which contained this chart-topping single of the same name. It's a smooth, no-filter blending of pop, soul and disco that touches the mind as much as the spirit.
Valli and his group exuded the influence of their Jersey roots in their style and music. This particular tune, which reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles, put this new incarnation of the group on the radar of the public, broadened their base and re-established their fame. The lyrics ask a simple question and give a simple answer. Brazenly beseeching and motivational, the song is timeless in its affirmation.
