In 1955, Fred Parris and The Satins recorded one of the most beloved hits of all time in the basement of a church in Connecticut.
It’s called “In the Still of the Night.”
Although the song would only achieve moderate success right away — peaking at #24 on the national pop charts in 1956 — “In the Still of the Night” has proven to be a one of the great songs of its generation.
After being featured on the soundtrack to the 1987 film “Dirty Dancing,” which sold more than 10 million copies, the song was ranked as the 90th greatest song of all time by Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the Top 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2010.
While it’s been covered by various artists such as Debbie Gibson, Boyz II Men, and the Beach Boys, nothing beats the original.
