March 13th, 2013

Thirty-seven years ago today, on March 13, 1976, The Four Seasons had their fifth Number One hit with “December 1963″ (Oh, What a Night),” which was their first hit to top the charts since “Rag Doll” in 1964. “December 1963″ remained in the top position on the Billboard Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks and was also their only British Number One single.

Written by Bob Gaudio and Judy Parker, “Oh, What A Night” broke right around Christmas of ‘75, and slowly climbed to Number One by mid-March. The song spent six months on the charts and sold more than three million copies, making it The Four Seasons’ best-selling single ever.

In 1976, “Oh, What A Night” spent 27 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100, then it hit the chart again for another 27 weeks in 1994, peaking at #14 on the chart.
