Frankie Valli made his name with The Four Seasons.   After that, he had a couple of # 1 songs:  “Can’t take my eyes off of you” and “My eyes adored you”.    

In the summer of 1978, Frankie was on top of the charts again with “Grease”, the title song from the very popular movie.    

Let me add a footnote about Barry Gibb of The Bee Gees, the song’s composer.    It was the 26th week at #1 for a Barry Gibb song in 1978:  “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever,” by the Bee Gees; “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water” and “Shadow Dancing,” by Andy Gibb; and “If I Can’t Have You,” by Yvonne Elliman on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.    It was indeed an amazing year for Barry Gibb!
