"Strangers In The Night"

OK, more Ol' Blue Eyes: This '66 Robic/Singleton/Snyder/Kaempfert composition was Sinatra's comeback hit - his 1st in 11 yrs. The album was his most commercially successful recording. #1 US and UK. Recorded in 2 takes with Glen Campbell on rhythm guitar. Won 4 Grammys in '67, including Record Of The Year and Best Male Pop Performance. The scat improv at the end inspired the name of a cartoon canine.

Yesterday's answer: "Oh, Pretty Woman" by The Big O. Of course, the 1990 Gere/Roberts movie was inspired by it. Some say it's the best song of the rock era.
