Audio: “Strangers In The Night” By Bette Midler

“Strangers In The Night” By Bette Midler

Ooooooh. Wooooh.
Strangers in the night, exchanging glances,
wondering in the night what were the chances
we would fall in love before the night was through.

Something in your eyes was so exciting,
and in your smile, ooh, inviting.
In my heart I knew I must have you.

Strangers in the night, lonely people.
Strangers in the night up to the moment
we said our first hello. Little did we know
love was just a glance away, embracing dance away.
It’s just a glance away. It’s just a chance away. Read More

Santa Ana Orange County Register
Review: Songs For The New Depression
By JIMM INOOLO
January 6, 1977

Bette Midler Is a miracle worker of sorts, the kind of singer who can evoke a mood given a few notes. What surprises most about her style is the breathy passion with which she wraps each phrase without distorting the continuity of the melody.

Her latest album “Songs for t h e N ew Depression” (Atlantic SD-18155) is an interim into the world of disappointment and disillusion, particularly evident in “Mr. Rockefeller,” “Buckets of Rain” and “Tragedy.” The greatest amount of pathos is derived not from the lyrics but the texture and emotional disclosure of her voice.
