Strangers in the Night

Strangers in the Night” has music by Bert Kaempfert and English lyrics by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder. The song was made famous in 1966 by Frank Sinatra, who took it to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the title song for his 1966 album Strangers in the Night, which became his most commercially successful. Sinatra’s recording also won him the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and the Grammy Award for Record of the Year.

I have given it an instrumental surf-rock setting, and I think it is safe to say this was never imagined by Kaempfert nor Sinatra.

I should also perhaps confess that I have never actually liked this song, and even after arranging and recording it, I still don’t.
