Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons: “Oh What A Night”

The hit song “Oh What A Night” by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons was originally set in 1933 with the title “December 5th, 1933,” and celebrated the repeal of Prohibition, according to the co-writer and longtime group member Bob Gaudio. Lead singer Frankie Valli nor co-writer (and later, Gaudio’s wife) Judy Parker were thrilled about the lyrics (and Valli objected to parts of the melody) so Gaudio redid the words and Parker redid the melody until all were content with the finished product. It ended up being a nostalgic love song.  

The Four Seasons had a series of hits from 1962-1968. In 1975, they returned to the charts with “December 1963 (Oh What a Night),” which hit #3 in the US. “December 1963” was the follow-up to that song

Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Oh What a Night

Here are the lyrics to “Oh What a Night by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons:

Oh, what a night
Late December, back in ’63
What a very special time for me
As I remember, what a night

Oh, what a night
You know, I didn’t even know her name
But I was never gonna be the same
What a lady, what a night

Oh, I
I got a funny feeling when she walked in the room
Hey, my
As I recall, it ended much too soon

Oh, what a night
Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me
She was everything I dreamed she’d be
Sweet surrender, what a night

And I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Spinning my head around and taking my body under
Oh, what a night

Oh, I
Got a funny feeling when she walked in the room
Hey, my
As I recall, it ended much too soon

Oh, what a night
Why’d it take so long to see the light?
Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right
What a lady, what a night

Oh, I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Spinning my head around and taking my body under
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Repeat X5)
