What's chancier than letting a model sing? Letting a model cover the Kinks , one of the most influential and revered bands in rock 'n' roll history. Musically, she doesn't bring much to the song, save for changing the gender on the opening word -- "girl" becomes "boy" -- and delivering Ray Davies' classic melody in a somewhat rigid, Nico-esque manner. It's not quite Velvet Underground cool, but it's a serviceable rendering of an all-time classic, a primal proto-punk nugget so simple and brilliant it almost can't be tainted. Inevitably, haters will hate, but before you dis Mrs. Tom Brady too harshly, consider this: All proceeds from the track, which is available for download via iTunes and Amazon, benefit UNICEF, one of the many charities this stunning do-gooder reps. Even if you think Gisele butchered a Kinks classic, she did so in hopes of getting vaccines for children, so it's at least somewhat justifiable.
All Day and All of the Night Lyrics: I'm not content to be with you in the daytime / Girl I want to be with you all of the time / The only time I feel alright is by your side .

Ray Davies and The Kinks: their 10 greatest songs
Songwriter, bandleader, social critic, poet and humorist all apply to The Kinks frontman Ray Davies. Unlike other British Invasion-era bandleaders, he didn't seem comfortable as a frontman. The band's sound was also different. Less rooted in American music, The Kinks had a more overtly English sound. Davies often sang in a shy, insecure voice over some of the wildest and rawest music anybody had ever heard.
It reached No. Like their previous hit " You Really Got Me ", the song relies on a simple sliding power chord riff, although this song's riff is slightly more complicated, incorporating a B Flat after the chords F and G. Otherwise, the recordings are similar in beat and structure, with similar background vocals, progressions, and guitar solos. When they tried to develop amplifiers that had pre-gain and all, I thought it wasn't quite right, and I struggled with the sound for a while. I never liked Marshalls, because they sounded like everybody else. Then in the mid '70s I started using Peavey, and people said, "Nobody uses Peavey - country and western bands use them" [laughs]. I used to blow them up every night.
