Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Day and Night

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.

So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


Day and Night – Billie Piper

It was one of those songs that when it was around all you wanted to do was learn a dance routine to it because it had such an addictive heavy beat that it made you want to dance when you are a kid.

The song Day and Night was released on the 15th May 2000 under the record label Innocent Virgin. The song was written by Billie Piper, Elliot Kennedy, Mark Cawley, Mike Percy and Tim Lever and appeared on her second album Walk Of Life.

The song did really well in the charts and went to number one in the United Kingdom and apparently sold a quarter of a million copies.  It also did well internationally and reached Gold Certification in New Zealand and Platinum in Australia.

Watching the music video now after all these years it really does define a generation of music for me – a lot of the popstars around in this time had erratic dance moves, crimped hair and a crop top with trousers. The memories come flooding back and make me remember that you always wanted to be the girl in the music video because they kicked ass and they just came across so cool. The song is still very catchy and I still find myself singing along to it.
