"Every Day I Have to Cry", also known as "Every Day I Have to Cry Some", is a song written by Arthur Alexander and first recorded by Steve Alaimo in 1962. Although the song has been recorded by many musicians over the years, Alexander did not record his own version until 1975. His version went to #45 on the USBillboard Hot 100chart. None of the other versions made it into the Top 40 on the US chart.
The Bee Gees covered "Every Day I Have to Cry" as teenage recording artists in Australia. This version was recorded at Festival Studios on February 1965 and marked two important firsts for the group - Robin Gibb's debut lead vocal and Maurice Gibb playing organ - the first of many times he would contribute keyboards to the group's recordings.  The record was backed with "You Wouldn't Know", a Barry Gibb original which was also featured later the same year on the group's first album The Bee Gees Sing and Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs.
Both songs were included on the 1998 anthology of the group's Australian recordings Brilliant from Birth.
