Song of the Week – Beggin’, Måneskin and The Four Seasons

Ignored           Obscured            Restored

Måneskin is an Italian rock band that formed in 2016, released their debut album in 2018, but has only recently been making waves in English-speaking countries.

A song they recorded in 2017 was released in the US last year and peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100.  “Beggin” has also notched over 875 million streams on Spotify!

This song rocks!

You may have seen Måneskin perform “Beggin’” last week on Saturday Night Live.

Hearing it led me to revisit the original version released by The Four Seasons fifty-five years ago, in February 1967.

This song rocks!

It is one of Frankie Valli’s best vocal performances – very soulful, with less saccharine and more dinge.  “Beggin’” was very popular in the ‘70s on the English Northern Soul circuit at dance clubs such as the famous Wigan Casino.

Enjoy… until next week.
