(Verve Records) I’ve got you under my skin I’ve got you deep in the heart of me So deep in my heart that you’re really a part of me I’ve got you under my skin I’d tried so not to give in I said to myself, “This affair never will go so well” But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know so well I’ve got you under my skin? I’d sacrifice anything come what might For the sake of havin’ you near In spite of a warnin’ voice that comes in the night And repeats, repeats in my ear Don’t you know, little fool, you never can win? Use your mentality, wake up to reality But each time that I do just the thought of you Makes me stop before I begin ‘Cause I’ve got you under my skin I would sacrifice anything come what might For the sake of havin’ you near In spite of the warning voice that comes in the night And repeats, how it yells in my ear Don’t you know, little fool, you never can win? Why not use your mentality, step up, wake up to reality? But each time I do just the thought of you Makes me stop just before I begin ‘Cause I’ve got you under my skin Yes, I’ve got you under my skin

If this is your first exposure to this incredible Artist, Ella Fitzgerald, our sincere apologies regardless of how long you have lived on planet Earth. Ella checks every box for extraordinary vocalist and then sets the bar higher for interpretive mastery, scat singing ease, multi-octave orchestral vocal range, and the Ella effect. Enough said that has not already been offered. I write today about Ella for the younger ears in the audience who are new to Ella but still can hear great vocal artistry when they hear it. The hope is, of course, we develop a few new fans for my Mom’s favorite female vocalist. Just listen and you will be smitten. Amazement and awe each time I listen, especially to the rapid scat attack and also the stupendous, Vocal Range: C3 – Db6.
