"Strangers in the Night" is a song made famous by Frank Sinatra, who recorded it in 1966. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and was the title song for his most successful album.

Origins

The English lyrics were written by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder. The music was originally composed by Ivo Robić for the music festival in Split, Croatia. Robić later sang the song in German ("Fremde in der Nacht") and in Croatian ("Stranci u Noći"). A thorough adaptation and an arrangement of the piece was done for Sinatra's version by Bert Kaempfert; however this adaptation was taken to court in 1963 by composer Ralph Chicorel who claimed that 24 of "Strangers'" 32 bars had been copied from his song, "You Are My Love." The case was settled out of court after years of Kaempfert not showing up to court dates. Chicorel still claims that "true justice" has not been served as the song's success and "wrongful attribution" were not made up for in the settlement. Ivo Robić (January 29, 1923 - March 9, 2000) was a popular Croatian singer and songwritter. ...
