"Sherry" is a song written by Bob Gaudio, who was the organist/singer with The Four Seasons. It was The Four Season's first nationally released sgle and their first number one hit, reaching the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on September 15, 1962. Frankie Valli's soaring falsetto vocals were a big part of the group's sound, which was emphasized in the packaging of this song and album, which was credited to "Four Seasons featuring The Sound Of Frankie Valli." As "Sherry"'s reign on the charts was ending after an astonishing fie weeks at #1, The Four Seasons released another single that spent another five weeks at #1: "Big Girls Don't Cry." It was recorded in a session that produced the group's first album as the Four Seasons: Sherry And 11 Others.
