Twin-Pick (Music Trivia Quiz) -- Those Jersey Boys

The Four Seasons were huge hitmakers before the Beatles. I liked them, they really are roots artists of pop music. Today there is a show on Broadway, and a touring show, about these Jersey Boys. The guys started out, back in the 1950's, singing backup for Bobby Darin, Freddy Cannon and others.

Their name came from a bowling alley, they liked the name, and the best known member of the group was Frankie Valli with his high falsetto -- who could forget it? Their first hit as a group came in 1962, their last hit was in 1976.

Everybody remembers so many of their hit songs: Walk Like A Man, Sherry, I've Got You Under My Skin, Dawn.

Yes everyone, it is time for Twin-Pick. Your chance to see how much you remember about the Jersey Boys. Your choices are below. Just click on your chosen answer and you will, instantly, find out if you are right or wrong. Get it right and you will see the original artists perform the original hit. Get it wrong and you will be shunned by my rude cyber assistants. Here we go, are you ready for the action? This is a tougher one, so get ready to suffer.
