Song Of The Day - "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Frankie Valli

This 1967 solo hit by Valli was written like most of the Four Seasons hits by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio. This song was a big hit for Valli (#7) and has spawned over 200 cover versions by such artists as The Lettermen, Gloria Gaynor, Jay and The Americans, Pet Shop Boys and Lauryn Hill. This one is by far the best version. Just watched the movie "The Deer Hunter" tonight for the first time since it came out in 1978, and this song is used to great effect by the gang before they go off to Viet Nam.
