Radio II, side B, track 4: “Nite and Day” by Al B. Sure!

Oh, Al B. Sure!, you were the first to introduce me to the magic of R&B and that songs didn’t have to be all about a catchy hook or screaming vocals or heart-wrenching emotion.  Sometimes, it could just be all about being smooth (and/or smoov).  How I wished I could walk up to a girl and say “Can you feel it, baby?  I can.”  And there’s nothing to say that I couldn’t do that, but if I said it, I was sure to be laughed at.  When you said it, I imagined you got a different response.  And while this song wasn’t ever in my top favorite songs off the radio, to this day, even if it’s just in my head, if I see a pretty girl, I’ll purr “ggiirrl” just like you do in your song.

“Nite and Day”

Ah, can you feel it baby?
I can
Excuse me, do you think that I might be able to touch you
[Female voice]
Who me

[Chorus]
I can tell you how I feel about you night and day
How I feel about you
I can tell you how I feel about you night and day
How I feel about you

I’ll love you more in the rain or shine
And making love in the rain is fine
A love so good and I call it mine
Love is blind

[Chorus]

Believe me when I say that I do care, I can tell you
I’d like to run my fingers through your hair, I can tell you
Baby, if you left I could not bear, I can tell you
Please don’t share

Do you love me, please let me know, I can tell you)
Don’t hide the feeling, just let it show, I can tell you)
A feeling so deep that comes within, I can tell you)
What kind of love am I in, ooh…

[Chorus]

If you and I were one, girl
The love would share would be so fun
Just take my hand and you’ll see, girl
That we’d take off into another world

I can tell you how I feel about you (Ooh) night and day (Uh-huh)
(Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh)
I can tell you how I feel (Woo) about you night and day
(I’ll love you more in the rain or shine)

I can tell you how I feel about you night and day
(Night and day, night and day, night and day)
I can tell you how I feel (Woo) about you night and day
(Making love in the rain is fine)

I can tell you how I feel about you night and day [Repeat: x 2]
