    Reveal:

    My wife has season tickets to The Aronoff Center here. A performing arts center for plays, musicals, etc. One of the shows was “Jersey Boys”, about Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. She played me this song. I’ve heard some of his or their stuff before, but was surprised I hadn’t heard this one. It’s close but not quite accurate I think. Not my genre, but I’d like to sit down with this one and really try to work it out more.

    Great tune. I'm sorry I got in here late as I'd have definitely gotten that. It's one of my favorite songs and long on my list to cover. Well played!

    It definitely sounds familiar. I don’t think this is it, but whenever I think I’m close to the Eureka! moment, The Romantics - Talking In Your Sleep keeps popping in my head. Fogging me up. It sounds good though.

    Apologies in advance for the wilful obscurity of this riff. You gotta admit it's kinda catchy though. My son suggested the riff. It's an Australian band you've almost certainly never heard of. That's my boy playing the riff and me trying to play rhythm :)
