Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom When the jungle shadows fall Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock As it stands against the wall Like the drip drip drip of the raindrops When the summer shower is through So a voice within me keeps repeating you, you, you. Night and day You are the one Only you beneath the moon and under the sun Whether near to me or far It's no matter, darling, where you are I think of you Day and night. Night and day Why is it so That this longing for you follows wherever I go? In the roarin' 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 yearnin' burnin' inside of me And its torment won't be through 'Til you let me spend my life making love to you Day and night Night and day. Night and day You are one Only you 'neath the moon or under the sun Whether near to me or far It's no matter, baby, where you are I think of you Day and night.
Question: What's the connection between the Muslim call to prayer and Frank Sinatra? Well, that's the way Cole Porter told it, some of the time: His biggest hit was supposedly inspired by hearing the muezzin summon the faithful in Morocco during one of Cole's Mediterranean wanderings. Morocco-wise, it seems more attuned to the country's nocturnal near namesake in Manhattan: "The crowds at El Morocco punish the parquet," as Porter wrote on another occasion. Not the Middle East, not the middle west, not the middle anything, but the heights - the height of a particular kind of New York sophistication and elegance: parquet, cocktails, the rustle of gowns History does not record whether any Moroccan imams were present eighty-two-and-a-third years back to return the favor and hear Broadway summon the faithful to Fred Astaire. Imagine being present that evening and getting in on the ground floor not just of any old hit song but of one of the ten most popular songs of the 20th century! So what did the crowd make of it that first night?
