“Night And Day” From the musical comedy “The Gay divorce” Words And Music By Cole Porter. Fox Trot.
“Night and Day” is a popular song by Cole Porter. It was written for the 1932 musical play Gay Divorce. It is perhaps Porter’s most popular contribution to the Great American Songbook and has been recorded by dozens of artists.
Fred Astaire introduced “Night and Day” on stage, and his recording of the song was a #1 hit. He performed it again in the 1934 film version of the show, renamed The Gay Divorcee, and it became one of his signature pieces.
Porter was known to claim that the Islamic call to worship he heard on a trip to Morocco inspired the song.
Another popular legend has it he was inspired by the Moorish architecture of the Alcazar Hotel in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
The song was so associated with Porter that when Hollywood first filmed his life story in 1946, the movie was entitled Night and Day.
“Night and Day” has been recorded many times, notably by Fred Astaire, Bill Evans, Art Tatum, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Dionne Warwick, Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Bassey, Ringo Starr, Sondre Lerche, Doris Day, Deanna Durbin, Jamie Cullum, Etta James, and U2.
Sinatra recorded the song at least five times including with Axel Stordahl in his first solo session in 1942 and again with him in 1947, with Nelson Riddle in 1956 for A Swingin’ Affair!, with Don Costa in 1961 for Sinatra and Strings, and even a disco version with Joe Beck in 1977. In 2004 a version of “Night and Day” was included in the biographical film about Cole Porter, De-Lovely, sung by John Barrowman and Kevin Kline.

Cole Albert Porter (Peru, Indiana, 9 de junio de 1891 – Santa Mónica, California, 15 de octubre de 1964) fue un reconocido compositor y letrista de música popular estadounidense. Autor de más de mil canciones, muchas de ellas consideradas clásicos del cancionero estadounidense o Great American Songbook. Realizadas principalmente para comedias musicales y películas musicales, entre las que destacan, mencionando algunas de las más populares y ampliamente versionadas: Anything Goes, Begin The Beguine, Easy To Love, It’s All Right With Me, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Just One Of Those Things, Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love), Love For Sale, Night And Day, What Is This Thing Called Love, True Love, o You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To.
Al contrario que la inmensa mayoría de célebres compositores de Broadway y del American Songbook, que trabajaban en equipo, Porter componía tanto la música como la letra de sus canciones.
Este tema ha sido versionado entre otros por:
Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett, Doris Day, Bill Evans, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday etc…
