Night and Day

If music be the food of love, play on, to quote Shakespeare.

Night and Day

Have you ever wanted to gorge yourself with music? One song that elicits that response from me is the Cole Porter gem, "Night and Day." (My favorite version is by the Temptations from the movie "What Women Want," a great movie despite critical questions.) A clever conversation between lyrics and melody ensues throughout. The hero/heroine sings about a love that torments exquisitely all day and all night long. Music follows words in their delicious pain. When doubt is felt, the notes express that and you hear uncertainty. This musical exactitude that still contains the freshness of artistry is rare.
