“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.

This classic was written in 1955 by Parris inside the basement of a local church. The video below gives us a chance to enjoy a live excerpt from the film, Sweet Beat.
