|The Four Seasons singles chronology|
"Big Man in Town" is a song popularized by The Four Seasons and written by Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio. The single was released by Philips Records in October 1964 and reached the #20 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
"Big Man in Town" was released at a time in which Four Seasons material was being issued on an almost-weekly basis, between releases on Philips Records under their group name and reissues on the group's former label Vee-Jay. The rate of releases would be soon to increase as — with the blessing of Philips Records executives — lead singer Frankie Valli would be rekindling a long-dormant "solo" career with the rest of the group as backing musicians. The song is also featured in the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys.
