      Hi Tapio,

      Tenor saxophonist Charlie Singleton is a different person to songwriter
      Charlie "Hoss" Singleton. The latter, often in the company of partner Rose
      Marie McCoy, wrote among many others such enduring classics as "Boot 'Em
      Up", "Honey Bunch", "Talk That Talk", "There Ain't Enough Room Here To
      Boogie", "One Monkey Don't Stop The Show", "Person To Person", "Right Around
      The Corner", "Shotgun Wedding", "Well, All Right", "Promise Mister Thomas",
      "Piddily Patter", "Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean", "Mambo Baby", "Love
      Contest", "Trying To Get To You", "Don't Forbid Me", "Spanish Eyes",
      and..."Strangers In The Night"!

      Both Charlies were based in NYC, however, and both made records; "Hoss" made
      a handful of sides for RCA Victor - where he was employed as staff
      writer/A&R man - from the mid 1950s to the early 1960s and I wouldn't be
      surprised if the Chase issue was by him too (perhaps the label was owned by
      fellow Big Apple r&b composer Lincoln Chase?).

      Regards
