My Eyes Adored You by Frankie Valli

Album: CloseupReleased: 1974Charted:

  • This was written by Kenny Nolan and Bob Crewe, who are the team that gave us "Lady Marmalade," which replaced this song at #1 in March, 1975.
  • The song is about an unrequited love. Valli sings about a girl who he loved since his school days, but never attained. She was close to him, but she may have well been a million miles away.
  • While this was credited to just Frankie Valli, his Four Seasons bandmates sang on it with him. They recorded the song for Motown Records, who refused to release it. When the group left Motown, Valli purchased the rights to the song for $4000 and shopped it to other record companies. They finally found a taker in the Private Stock Record label, and the song became a huge hit and revived Valli's career. The Private Stock label closed down in 1978. (thanks, Mark - Sarnia, ON)
  • The lyrics, "Walking home every day over Barnegat Bridge and Bay" are a reference to a real place on the coast of New Jersey.
  • This was originally titled "Blue Eyes of Georgia."

Actually the bay in Ocean City is Great Egg Harbor. Barnegat Bay is north quite a ways. Try Seaside and Island Beach State Park. It is in Ocean County while Ocean City is in Cape May County.Rich - Cherry Hill, Nj
