Co-written by Marvin Hamlisch and Howard Liebling and produced by Bob Crewe, "California Nights" was Lesley Gore's last big hit. Released in late 1966 and on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for a total of 14 weeks, the song peaked at #16 in February of 1967 giving Lesley her first top 40 hit since "My Town, My Guy and Me" in late 1965 and her first top 20 since "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows" in the summer of '65. In the January 19, 1967 episode of the Batman TV series, "That Darn Catwoman" Lesley (in her role as Catwoman's underling, Pussycat) lip-synched the song to a trio of Catwoman's henchmen.
