Cusp Song of the Day: Swearin' to God

Jersey Boys Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons had dozens of hits beginning with "Sherry" in 1962. Valli is still touring, with four younger "Seasons," and he has a deep reservoir of hits to keep his fans happy.
Cusp features two songs by the group and two by Valli as a solo actfour of the prolific performers' five 1975-76 chart hits. During that period, the group had two hits ("Who Loves You" and the number 1 "December 1963 (Oh What a Night)" and Valli had three solo hits ("My Eyes Adored You," "Swearin' to God" and "Our Day Will Come").  

"Swearin' to God" hit the charts in June 1975 and rose to number 6. It was produced by Bob Crewe, with whom Valli had worked since 1958.

In the book, the song plays right after Karen and Patrick's first kiss. She notices, but he probably doesn't, since as it starts he asks, “Want to get out of here?”
