Frankie Valli: Can't Take My Eyes Off You

De origen ítalo-norteamericano, Frankie Valli lideró el grupo The Four Seasons en los años que los Beatles conquistaban el mercado discográfico en Estados Unidos. Fueron considerados una de las más grandes formaciones de pop, vendiendo más de 80 millones de discos y numerosos hits internacionales, lo que les llevó a formar parte del Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Pero el principal motivo de su presencia en este blog es su tema "Can't Take My Eyes Off You". Una canción publicada en 1967, escrita por Bob Crewe y Bob Gaudio, y que significó su primer éxito en solitario. Un tema que exhala romanticismo con toques jazz sedosos, llenos de suavidad y ritmo fluctuante, cuya elegancia ha servido para que desde Frank Sinatra a Lauryn Hill, pasando por The Temptations o Gloria Gaynor, hicieran su particular versión. Ahora lo compartimos con la particular y especial  forma de cantar de  Frankie Valli. Su falsete y habilidad vocal capaz de dominar diversos estilos, lograron convertir a esta canción en todo un clásico del siglo XX.


Letra
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be 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 you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,
But 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 you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
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 found you, stay
And let me love you, baby.
Let me love you.

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be 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 you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
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 found you, stay..
