Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Long before “Jersey Boys” I loved this song. The lyrics are perfect for a first dance. If you have a really good horn section in your band you’re all set. What is interesting is the famously huge orchestra Frankie Valli used, but there are no background vocals, making it that much more powerful. The “chorus” to the song is one of the most memorable ever recorded. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t know when to come in and belt “I love you baby…”

Check out these lyrics. They’re flawless.

You’re just too good to be true, can’t take my eyes off of you
You feel like heaven to touch, I wanna hold you so much 
At long last love has arrived, and I thank God I’m alive
You’re just too good to be true, can’t take my eyes off of you
Pardon the way that I stare, there’s nothing else to compare
The sight of you makes me weak, there are no words left to speak
So if you feel like I feel, please let me know that it’s real
You’re just too good to be true, can’t take my eyes off of you
I love you, baby and if it’s quite alright I need you, baby to warm the lonely nights
I love you, baby, trust in me when I say: Oh, pretty baby, don’t bring me down I pray
Oh, pretty baby, now that I’ve found you stay. Let me love you, baby, let me love you

C’mon, it doesn’t get any better than that. Through in a killer horn section, and you are in heaven. “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”  is my number one First Dance suggestion.
