"December 1963 (Oh What A Night)" as written by and Bob/parker Gaudio....
Oh, what a night,
Late December back in sixty-three
What a very special time for me,
As I remember, what a night

Oh, what a night, you know I didn't even know her name,
But I was never gonna be the same
What a lady, what a night
Oh, I, I got a funny feelin' when she walked in the room
Oh my, as I recall it ended much too soon

Oh what a night hypnotizin' mesmerizing me,
She was ev'rything I dreamed she'd be
Sweet surrender, what a night
I felt a rush like a rollin' ball of thunder,
Spinnin' my head around n' takin' my body under

Oh, what a night
Why'd it take so long to see the light,
Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right
What a lady, what a night

I felt a rush like a rollin' ball of thunder,
Spinnin' my head around n' takin' my body under
Oh what a night!
Oh what a night!
Oh what a night!
Oh what a night!
Oh what a night!

    General CommentAccording to wikipedia:
    "The song was originally about the repeal of Prohibition, but the lyrics were changed at the urgings of Valli and lyricist Parker. The song became a nostalgic remembrance of a young man's "first time" with a woman. In the Broadway play Jersey Boys, the song accompanied the Bob Gaudio character being set up with a prostitute by the other Four Seasons, in order to lose his virginity."

    The scene was rather funny in Jersey Boys.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's about a guy losing his virginity. And it was late December, 1963. Fabulous!

    General CommentThis song is awsome. The guy it's about has sex the first time with a prostitute and how it changed him. In the musical "Jersey Boys", which is about the Four Seasons, the song begins: "It's a season of firsts: John Glenn is the first American to orbit the moon, the lable's raking in in so they send over a few girls when we hit Chicago. And that night... I rack up a personal first...."
