I could have chosen Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons’ 1966 original. Valli’s voice, and the general wholesome 60s vibe, do admittedly take some beating.
But the 1980 cover by The Spinners is a belter! Adding a bit of post-disco punch, the richer, bouncier instrumentation sits alongside a mellow vocal track and stomping bassline.
In either version – what a chorus!
