Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, June 2, 1966 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song was originally written by Ivo Robic for a music festival in Split, Croatia; Robic later recorded versions of it in Croatian ("Stranci u Noci") and in German ("Fremde in der Nacht"). English lyrics about love at first sight were written by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder. Sinatra ad-libbed the "Dooby dooby doo" closing scat.
