YMMV / Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

  • Covered Up: The Tremeloes' version of "Silence Is Golden" is considerably better known, as is the Walker Brothers' version of "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore". The Spinners' version of "Working My Way Back To You" can be argued either way.
  • Older Than They Think: Released in 1968, Genuine Imitation Life Gazette is the Ur-Example of an album with its artwork done up as a fictional newspaper (including song lyrics printed as stories), predating the more famous covers of Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick and John Lennon's Some Time in New York City.
  • Signature Song: "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)", which is an interesting variation: It was released in 1975, well after their heydey (but still a #1 hit), but is about the era that was their heydey.
