S is for ...
Frank Sinatra's number one top single, Strangers in the Night.
The album by the same name was his most commercially successful album and reached number one on the UK Singles Chart, The Billboard Hot 100, and the Easy Listening Singles Chart.
The song is composed by Bert Kaempfert with English lyrics by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder.
One of the most memorable and recognizable features of the song is Sinatra's scat improvisation of the melody with syllables "doo-be-doo-be-doo" as the song fades to the end. This inspired the name for the cartoon canine "Scooby Doo".
It is one of my most favourite songs. Beautiful song, beautifully sung.
This song always stirs my soul and is sure to bring a smile to my face.
"Something in your eyes was so invitingalways send a shiver up my spine.
Something in your smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you"
The stormy weather here today on this Spring day is just perfect for listening to the scintillating, soothing and seductive voice of Sinatra singing ... Strangers in the Night.
Hope you enjoyed that as much as I did and hope the skies are serene and the sun is shining where you are.
And in case you're wondering why there are so many S words in this post, it's because I'll be linking this post to ABC Wednesday when the letter S arrives this week.
I'm also linking to Pinning and Singing as I do every Monday.

Some notes in this post are taken from Wikipedia - Strangers in the Night
Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wond'ring in the night what were the chances
We'd be sharing love before the night was through
Something in your eyes was so inviting
Something in you smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you
Strangers in the night
Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
Ever since that night we've been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night
