“Summer Wind” – Frank Sinatra (1966)

“Summer Wind,” originally called “Der Sommerwind,” was written by Heinz Meier with German language lyrics by Hans Bradtke – and released in 1965. Johnny Mercer re-wrote the song into English.

In America, it was first recorded by Wayne Newton, Bobby Vinton and Perry Como, but the best known version belongs to Frank Sinatra, which came out in 1966.

The Sinatra version originally appeared on his album, Strangers in the Night.
