Strangers in the Night Introduction
Strangers in the Night is a popular song originally composed by Avo Uvezian as "Broken Guitar" and later renamed by Bert Kaempfert with English lyrics by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder. Kaempfert originally used it under the title "Beddy Bye" as part of the instrumental score for the movie A Man Could Get Killed. The song was made famous in 1966 by Frank Sinatra.
Reaching number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the Easy Listening chart, it was the title song for Sinatra's 1966 album Strangers in the Night, which became his most commercially successful album. The song also reached number one on the UK Singles Chart.
Strangers in the Night was recorded by many other artists. It is sometimes claimed, that the Yugoslav-Croatian singer Ivo Robić was the original composer, and that he sold the rights to Kaempfert after entering it without success in a song contest in Yugoslavia. This has not been substantiated.
