Cole Porter's 'Night and Day'. First performed in the musical Gay Divorce by Fred Astaire and Claire Luce in 1932, six years before Robert Johnson would die of poisoning down in Greenwood, Mississippi.

Unusually for the time, Mr. Porter wrote the tune and the words.. talented guy.

So here's a boogied up 'lectric guitar kind of version, which may or may not work according to your taste. I love it actually, and my wife likes it which is usually good. Regardless of the performance or recording at least I know I've got hold of a decent song.

I am finding the tap dancing shoes a little uncomfortable but I'm working on it. Enjoy the music.

Mick Clarke - Night and Day' Night and day - you are the one
Only you beneath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far it's no matter darling where you are
I think of you
night and day

Night and day - why is it so
That this longing for you follows me - wherever I go
In the roaring traffic's boom in the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
day and night

Night and day - under the hide of me
There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And this torment won't be through
til you let me spend my life making love to you
Night and day

Night and day - why is it so
That this longing for you follows me - wherever I go
In the roaring traffic's boom in the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
day and night

Night and day - under the hide of me
There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And this torment won't be through
til you let me spend my life making love to you
Night and day

And this torment won't be through
til you let me spend my life making love to you
Night and day
