GUEST SPOT # 25 - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons - Lets Hang On

Every Saturday we feature a Guest Spot, don't be shy! Tell us about a musical memory you have!



Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons - 'Let's Hang On' (1965)

This weeks Guest Spot is brought to us from Steve "Pogo" Patterson. Even when it's -15 degrees and billowing snow out on the ramp, he's in shorts! What song keeps him warm on those nasty days at the airport...?
Lookin' sharp there fellas

We are always influenced by our parent's taste in music one way or another, and I am no exception.
Whenever I hear this song, I can only think of being driven to Staines Prep' School when I was about 8, in my dads' metallic green Ford Granada 3.0 Ghia. To be honest, any Frankie Valli song does it, but I always loved the intro to this song and I would always make my dad play it whenever I was in his car. There are some live clips on youtube but the sound quality is not brilliant. 


Best 'hang on', Frankie is gonna put his foot down

Yep, it's definitely a 'dad' song! For some reason this reminds me of two things - xmas (I don't know why) and Frankie & Benny's restaurants. Time for something Italian!

I love this song too Steve, although I must admit my version of the memory is dancing to the Barry Manilow version in our guest house in Blackpool - such fun!!
