Which celestial object was 'Silver' for The Four Seasons song released in 1976?
"Silver Star" is the lead song on the Four Seasons album "Who Loves You". As was the case of all the songs on the LP, it was written by Bob Gaudio and Judy Parker and produced by Gaudio. Drummer Gerry Polci sang lead.
Released in April 1976 shortly after the #3 (US) hit "Who Loves You" and the #1 "December 1963 (Oh, What A Night)", both of which Polci was also lead or co-lead, the single was an edited version of a six-minute, nine second, song that married lyrics of love and Western movies with a disco beat that was the signature of "Who Loves You". The single reached #38 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was far more successful in the United Kingdom, however, reaching #3 on the UK singles chart.
