Francesco Stephen Castelluccio -- Frankie Valli -- knew what he wanted to do for a living by the time he turned seven.

Whether one listens to Betty Buckley singing "Memory" from Cats, or Barbra Streisand's version of the title song from 1973's The Way We Were, memory tends to play tricks on clarity.
