"Uptown Girl," Billy Joel very obviously pays tribute to the Four Seasons.
"Lies," Knickerbockers, sounded more like the Beatles than any other group, except for the Beatles themselves.
In the '80s, I actually thought UPTOWN was a Four Seasons comeback tune. And, being the archiver I claim to be, I was red-faced embarassed to lose a bet over LIES, standing my ground that the Beatles sang this. And that happened just last month!
Got to see Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons at TPAC here in Nashville a couple of years ago, and when he started doing a couple of cover songs, I was actually hoping that he would bust out "Uptown Girl." I was kinda disappointed that he didn't.
Billy Joel's "Tell Her About It" is supposedly a tribute to the Supremes, and "An Innocent Man" has a Drifters vibe to it.
