Everybody has a fond memory of some Frank Sinatra song or another. With so many hits under one fedora, how can you pick just one to sing in the car? On this day in 1966, Sinatra's album Strangers in the Night hit the No. 1 spot on the U.S. charts. Following this Billboard success, the album went on to win a Grammy for Album of the Year, as well as a Grammy for the Best Male Performance. 

In a review posted on July 23, 2016, The Wall Street Journal wrote, "Fifty years later, the popularity of the 'Strangers in the Night' single and album seems as baffling as it was improbable. Sinatra was 50 at the time and hadn’t had a No. 1 Billboard pop hit since the single 'Learnin’ the Blues' in 1955 and No. 1 album hit since 'Nice ’n’ Easy' in 1960." 

The album Strangers in the Nights marked a new era of Sinatra work that would continue his legacy decades to come. To celebrate this album's birthday, it's time to show off your knowledge of the title track.

I guess I was listening when Mom had the radio on when I was playing in the other room.

Peter Schickele pointed out that this song contains the most no-frills key change in all of popular music. Just before the last verse, Frank and all the backing musicians do a fermata ("hold"), pausing for a brief moment, and then start back up half a step higher for the final verse. No transition, no link, just "let's stop and then start up in another key".

Right, they don't go to 6 in the original key which is the dominant seventh of the new key.

How can you miss ? This thing did get WAY too much air time on the AM radio channels, back in the day.

5/5. People who only know Sinatra from this song, "My Way", "New York, New York" and such really need to explore his catalog. Although popular, they are far from his best. As someone wrote below, Sinatra did not care for "Strangers in the Night" or "My Way".

Very long history, going back to Harry James in the 30s.
The Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen tunes were classics as were the Nelson Riddle arrangements.

5/5, but I don't really "know my Sinatra." I like the songs of the era, but I never cared for him personally. Actually, I think these answers can be guessed logically without knowing the song.
