Despite a long absence from playing around the WordPress world, I’ve been given the honor of selecting this month’s theme in Dolly’s Music Passion thread, a regular monthly attraction on her blog All About Lemon. I reflected on what kind of theme we should do for this month that might capture the spirit of music and passion, and the concept of “night” seemed interesting. Night is definitely when music and passion often intersect. So join in everyone and post some of your favorite songs about night.
For me, the first song that came to mind was from a personal favorite, Ray Charles. I have chosen (Night Time) Is the Right Time. It is an old rhythm and blues song originally recorded in 1957 by Nappy Brown. Ray Charles covered it a year later and it became an immediate hit. The song has this raw, primal, lusty energy driving it, especially when Margie Hendricks calls to Ray in a little musical naughtiness. After all, isn’t night time the right time to be with the one you love?

Hoping everyone has a very nice night. Behave! Or maybe not…
