It wasn't until I heard Frankie Valli sing it that I appreciated and began to love the song.
And it wasn't until I heard Frankie Valli sing it that I knew "Spanish Harlem" was a place... and I want to visit it... I have only been up in Harlem once, and it was by accident. I also want to visit up by Columbia... haha
RIP Ben E. King
Did you know Spanish Harlem was written by Phil Spector?
Oh, and speaking of Frankie Valli, I bawled in Jersey Boys, the movie, when his daughter died. I was on the plane headed to NYC.
Oh, and on another tangent I would be the person going through Spanish Harlem playing this song as I did. And when I go to NY the ubiquitous song I have to play on my iPhone before I arrive is "Empire State of Mind"E
And anytime I am leaving on a jetplane I have to play this song.
