Back in 1995, Fred Parris and the Satins moved the radio in a powerful way. With their song written in a local church basement in Connecticut, “In the Still of the Night” only achieved moderate success reaching 24th on the pop charts.
However, what was left of the classic, was lasting power. The song received airplay over the years and is known as one of the best known doo-wop songs covered by notable names such as: Boys II Men and Debbie Gibson.
It has also made an appearance in several films such as: The Buddy Holly Story and Dirty Dancing.
So, even though the Satins’ classic didn’t become a huge hit in their release, what came after it was a long-lasting classic that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
