I am a night owl, so I figured why not celebrate the night with my Favorite "Night" Songs series, which is songs with "night" in the title. We are at #9: "All Day and All of the Night" by The Kinks. From their 1964 album, Kinks-Size, "All Day and All of the Night" was a Top 10 single, following in the footsteps of the classic Top 10 single, "You Really Got Me." Four years later, The Doors released their hit, "Hello, I Love You," which sounded very much like "All Day and All of the Night." Kinks vocalist Ray Davies' publisher wanted to sue, but Davies did not want to. Nevertheless, a British court decreed that all royalties from "Hello, I Love You" go to Davies. Featuring one of guitarist Dave Davies' signature, instantly recognizable riffs, "All Day and All of the Night" is a bona fide classic. Enjoy! (Info verified by Wikipedia)
