It is challenging to do a song that is already so well known and create a version that listeners will still care about. However, Richy picked and chose the most iconic parts of the original song and incorporated them into his cover of the classic piece. “Strangers In the Night,” sung by Richy Snyder, takes the foundation of the original song but uses his expertise to create a simplified version and focuses on the piano, which Beegee Adair plays. Richy’s vocals are rich and full of heartwrenching emotions as he sings about falling in love with the perfect partner. The song revolves around a newer pop/soulful sound with a slower tempo which also allows the music to move and connect to the romantic lyrics fluidly.

Richy Snyder took what was already a beautiful song and enhanced it with his expertise and uniqueness. Knowing that there is a personal connection to Richy with the lyrics being co-written by his father adds another level of appreciation to this wonderfully constructed cover of “Strangers In The Night.”
