Sept. 15, 1962 - Hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 today is “Sherry,” written by Bob Gaudio and recorded by The Four Seasons. Gaudio has said the song, which he claims to have written in 15 minutes, was originally titled “Jackie Baby,” in honor of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. At the studio, however, the name was changed to “Terri Baby,” and eventually to “Sherry,” the name of the daughter of Gaudio's best friend, New York disc jockey Jack Spector.
