Rag Doll" is a popular song written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio. It was recorded by The Four Seasons and released as a single in 1964. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on July 18, 1964, and remained on top for two weeks. The song was also a number one hit in Canada, and reached number two in the UK and number four in Ireland. According to songwriter Bob Gaudio, the recording was inspired by a dirty-faced little girl, about 5 years old, dressed in ragged clothes

Silence Is Golden" is a song recorded by the American vocal group the Four Seasons. The song was co-written by group producer Bob Crewe and group member Bob Gaudio. Philips Records released it in 1964 as the B-side of the . single "Rag Doll", which was also written by Crewe/Gaudio. British band The Tremeloes later recorded a sound-alike version using the same arrangement, which reached the top position on the UK Singles Chart on 18 May 1967, where it stayed for three weeks.

Much of that album didn’t work but Silence Is Golden was one of the few songs that did thanks to its combination of high emotion and low-key musical backing. The song’s emotional scenario concerned a young man tormented over a girl who doesn’t know he exists and, even worse, is in love with a cad who is destined to break her heart. The Four Seasons’ recording of Silence Is Golden pushes the group’s vocals to the forefront by going for a minimal backing that is dominated by acoustic guitar and occasional washes of shimmery harp over a bed of light, Latin-tinged percussion. Surprisingly, this potential hit was unceremoniously dumped on the market as the b-side to Rag Doll and never charted.
