Charlie Singleton: Strangers in the Night

Greetings Afrigeneas Writers:

The next time you step into an elevator, or stroll through a mall, please don't roll your eyes if the canned version of the song "Strangers in the Night" plays at you. Conjuring up images of the "pinky ring crowd" and back in the day waffle weave suits, are you?

Please read on.

Music historians confirm that "Strangers in the Night" revitalized Frank Sinatra's career as a #1 hit.

The Jacksonville Florida Public Library not only confirmed this Sinatra link, but dedicated a web page to the songwriter of "Strangers in the Night". Native Son of Jacksonville, Charlie Singleton collaborated/wrote this song and others including "Spanish Eyes", "Lady" and "Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean."

Below is the link to the Jacksonville Public Library's "Charlie Singleton Collection". It will take you to the beautifully crafted lyrics. Other pages will take you to his awards and filmography and "Strangers' Strange Journey."

Enjoy reading Charlie Singleton's words.
