#11 USA Pop, #1 UK
The British quartet named Brian Poole and The Tremeloes formed in 1958, charted in the top 50 here in the USA four times.
“Silence Is Golden” is my favorite of the four. It could either be could because my Dad always spoke this classic Abraham Lincoln quote:
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
Or it could because it is just a beautiful song with a beautiful melody sung beautifully by the lead vocal of Guitarist Rick West!
The song was recorded by The Four Seasons and released as the B-Side of their 1964 single “Rag Doll.”
Here is the original on the Phillips Label by the Four Seasons with Frankie Valli on lead vocal.
