"Hello Stranger" was a 1963 hit single by Barbara Lewis which spent two weeks at number one on the R&B singles chart in Billboard crossing over to #3 Pop.
"Hello Stranger" was written by Barbara Lewis herself who was originally inspired to write a song with that title while working gigs in Detroit with her musician father: “I would make the circuit with my dad and people would yell out: ‘Hey stranger, hello stranger, it’s been a long time’".
Lewis recorded "Hello Stranger" at Chess Studios in Chicago in January 1963. The track's producer Ollie McLaughlin recruited the Dells to provide the background vocals. The arrangement by Riley Hampton - then working with Etta James - featured a signature organ riff provided by keyboardist John Young. The track was completed after thirteen takes. Lewis would recall that on hearing the playback of the finished track, Dells member Chuck Barksdale "kept jumping up and down and saying, ‘It’s a hit, it’s a hit.’...I didn’t really know. It was all new to me.”
"Hello Stranger" was remade in 1966 by the Capitols again with Ollie McLaughlin producing (McLaughlin recorded the Capitols on his Karen label after hearing the group perform at a local dance headlined by Barbara Lewis). "Hello Stranger" was also a 1969 single release by Darius before returning to the charts in 1973 when it became a regional hit for Fire & Rain.
Fire & Rain were a folk rock duo comprising veteran Tucson musician Manny Freiser and Patti McCarron, Freiser's then-wife who sang lead; their version, which featured Michael Omartian on keyboards, was arranged by Ben Benay who also played guitar. Benay had also been guitarist on the version of "Hello Stranger" by Darius.
The Supremes and The Four Tops recorded a duet version of the song in 1971 for their third duet album Dynamite!.
Manny Freiser would recall: "Mercury [Records] released "Hello Stranger" as a single against our wishes. It became a legitimate hit at easy listening radio...Mercury then tried to cross it over to Top-40 radio...We started picking up major markets, mostly in the southeast...The single precariously "bubbled under the Hot 100" on Billboard's charts in spring '73: #106 one week, #105 the next, and so on" entering the Billboard Hot 100 that June at #100 where it remained for three weeks and then dropped off the charts. Freiser - "Although it had sold 70,000+ copies, 'Hello Stranger' had basically been a 'turntable hit' at Top 40 radio -- one that got played alot [sic], but didn't break. It thus became Billboard Magazine's lowest-ranked Hot 100 single of 1973, ranking #573 out of 573 singles that made the Hot 100."
The most successful incarnation of "Hello Stranger" since the Lewis original has been the 1977 Yvonne Elliman version produced by Freddie Perren; both Elliman and Perren deliberately sought to capture the sound of the original and the resultant track reached the US Top 20. Elliman's version also charted R&B at #57 and was most successful on the Easy Listening chart where it was #1 for four weeks.
In the UK Elliman's version was less successful reaching #26. "Hello Stranger" did not have the cachet of being the remake of a "golden oldie" in the UK as the Barbara Lewis original was overlooked in its 1963 UK release on London Records and although Elkie Brooks' first single, released in 1964, had featured a version of "Hello Stranger" that single's A-side had been Brooks' cover of another US R&B hit: Etta James' "Something's Got a Hold on Me" (not a chart item for Brooks).
In 1985 Carrie Lucas' remake of "Hello Stranger" - which featured the Whispers - was a Top 20 R&B hit and in 2004 Queen Latifah remade "Hello Stranger" for her The Dana Owens Album.
Other versions of the song have been recorded by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas for the Heat Wave.

Wondering what you can do to give back this holiday? St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is launching its sixth annual Thanks and Giving campaign, encouraging the public to help children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
Marlo Thomas’s father Danny Thomas founded St. Jude nearly 50 years ago with the promise that no child will ever be denied treatment because of a family’s inability to pay. Marlo Thomas talks about how you can support the Thanks and Giving campaign during the holidays by shopping at participating stores, donating at the register, donating online, and purchasing special merchandise at www.stjude.org.
The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Thanks and Giving national campaign is an unprecedented union of celebrities, media, retail and corporate partners. Returning are Jennifer Aniston, Robin Williams, Antonio Banderas and New Orleans Saints' Reggie Bush. This year, GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Luis Fonsi will be the celebrity ambassador in the Hispanic community. And, Carrie Underwood and Darius Rucker have recorded special radio messages that will be heard around the country.
In an extraordinary show of support, more than 50 companies partnering with St. Jude this year including Target, CVS/pharmacy, Kmart, Kay Jewelers, Dick's Sporting Goods, AutoZone, Williams-Sonoma, Inc, Gymboree, Ann Taylor, New York & Company, Dollar General, HSN, AOL, Brooks Brothers, Domino's Pizza, The Melting Pot, and many more.

Edge of Darkness is an emotionally charged thriller set at the intersection of politics and big business. Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) is a veteran homicide detective for the Boston Police Department and a single father. When his only child, twenty-four year old Emma (Bojana Novakovic), is murdered on the steps of his home, everyone assumes that he was the target. But he soon suspects otherwise, and embarks on a mission to find out about his daughter’s secret life and her murder. His investigation leads him into a dangerous looking-glass world of corporate cover-ups, government collusion and murder -- and to CIA operative Darius Jedburgh (Ray Winstone) who has been sent in to clean up the evidence. Craven’s solitary search for answers about his daughter’s death transforms into an odyssey of emotional discovery and redemption.
Does any one Know the name of this song?!
P.S. Darius 240z Rocks!
Superster Mel Gibson is terug op het witte doek als Thomas Craven, een oudgediende op de afdeling moordzaken van Boston. Zijn zware baan heeft de band met zijn 24-jarige dochter Emma ernstig verzwakt. De verrassing is des te groter als ze onverwacht naar huis komt. Ze is echter nauwelijks aangekomen als een gemaskerde man vlak voor Craven’s deur een einde aan haar leven maakt. De politie gaat er vanuit dat de aanslag op haar vader gemunt was, maar voor Thomas is niets zeker. Hij besluit tot op de bodem uit te zoeken wie het doelwit was én wie de opdracht gegeven heeft. De zoektocht van Thomas Craven naar de moordenaar van Emma brengt hem in contact met CIA agent Darius Jedburgh (Ray Winstone). Jedburgh heeft opdracht gekregen ieder onderzoek naar de moord tegen te werken. Dan heeft hij aan Thomas een verkeerde, want die is bereid door alle deuren te breken op zoek naar de waarheid. Thomas stuit op een muur van vijandigheid bij zowel bedrijven als overheid waar Emma contacten bleek te hebben. Met name Bennett (Danny Huston), die een groot chemisch bedrijf runt, weet het bloed onder zijn nagels vandaan te halen. Hoe dieper Thomas graaft in het geheime leven van Emma, hoe meer hij zich alleen voelt staan en moet erkennen dat hij zijn dochter nu pas leert kennen. Tegelijkertijd groeit zijn vastberadenheid om haar te wreken.
Edge of Darkness er en mørk og følelsesladet thriller i grænselandet mellem politik og multinationale interesser. Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) er enlig far og erfaren kriminalbetjent i Bostons drabs-afdeling. Da hans eneste barn, den 24-årige Emma (Bojana Novakovic), dræbes af skud fra et oversavet haglgevær lige uden for deres hus, formoder alle, at Thomas var målet. Men det går hurtigt op for ham, at Emma rent faktisk kan have været målet og han kaster sig uden tanke for egen sikkerhed ud i en livsfarlig efterforskning af sin datters hemmelighed, der kan være nøglen til hendes drab. Undersøgelsen leder ham hurtigt ind i en paranoid verden af iskolde forretningsmetoder, vildledning og mord – foruden den mystiske mellemmand, Darius Jedburgh (Ray Winstone) der er i gang med at fjerne samtlige beviser i sagen. Cravens ensomme søgen efter sandheden om drabet på sin datter udvikler sig hurtig til en menneskelig Davids kamp mod en skrupelløs sammensværgelses ansigtsløse bagmænd.
