Friday Flashback: Today in Frankie Valli Music History, 3/22/1975: ‘My Eyes Adored You’ Tops the Billboard Hot 100!March 22nd, 2013
Thirty-eight years ago today, March 22, 1975, Frankie Valli hit Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with â€œMy Eyes Adored You.â€ The song stayed in the top spot for one week and remained on the chart for 23 weeks.
This song, written by the Four Seasons long-time producer and co-writer, Bob Crewe, and Kenny Nolan, was a sentimental ballad that Frankie recorded during his years at Motown in the early 1970s. Motown sat on the track for a year and a half without issuing it. Finally, when Frankieâ€™s contract ran out in 1973, he bought back the master for $4,000.
