‘In the Still of the Night’ Was Recorded in a School Basement in 1956. Remember It?

“In The Still Of The Night” is a song written by Fred Parris and recorded by his group, Five Satins. It was a moderate hit when it was first released, but over the years, it received substantial airplay and is considered to be one of the best doo-woop songs in the world today.

It has been covered by many artists, including Boyz II Men and Debbie Gibson. It has also been featured in several movies.

This classic was written in 1955 by Parris, but its most unusual trivia fact is that it was recorded in the basement of  Saint Bernadette Catholic School in New Haven, Connecticut.
