FlinterFile: Frank Sinatra- Strangers In The Night

1966 frank-sinatra-summer-wind-1966

In 1966, Frank Sinatra returned to the charts after 11 years without big hits. The song originally was Croatian, written by Ivo Robic. After the Croatian version there was a German version, and then Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder wrote an English version. Frank Sinatra recorded the song with Glen Campbell as a studio guitarist. He kept looking at Frank, which made the producer ask who this person was. The song would mean the return of Frank Sinatra, although he hated the song. The scat at the end was even the inspiration for the name of Scooby Doo! It was a number 1 hit in both the US and the UK, pushing the Beatles from number 1. Enjoy

    Obscure fact, but The Kinks also lifted the “scooby-dooby-do” line on their Picture Book song, before the character was created.
