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 “My Eyes Adored You.” 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 Frankie’s contract ran out in 1973, he bought back the master for $4,000.
