"Take My Breath Away" r/b9a2e4191 Blessings/Prayers! Amen!

Feature. . . . . Thank you, sweetsuejustyou (Irene), for this great Standard!

"Night and Day" is a popular song by Cole Porter that was written for the 1932 musical 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. His recording of the song with the Leo Reisman orchestra was a No. 1 hit, topping the charts of the day for ten weeks. He performed it again in the 1934 film version of the show, renamed The Gay Divorcee, and it became one of his signature songs.

There are several accounts about the song's origin. One mentions that he was inspired by an Islamic prayer when he visited Morocco. Another account says 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 filmed his life story in 1946, the movie was entitled Night and Day.

Blessings on your day/evening!

Paul, My Daddy used to sing this (baritone like you), so I looked up origin. . .
