I've Got You Under My Skin

"I've Got You Under My Skin"-recorded Jan.12,1956-words and music by Cole Porter-arranged by Nelson Riddle

Perhaps the greatest recording Sinatra has ever made.It took 22 takes to reach perfection.The Milt Bernhart Trombone solo is wonderful.Sinatra would sing this in concert for his entire career.He said it best when he introduced it "........Cole Porter's shinning hour,one of Nelson Riddle's great works".

Can be found-Songs For Swingin' Lovers,The Select Cole Porter,The Capitol Years.

There is a rare ballad version on a unauthorized CD with a solo piano recorded at The University Of California on Feb.12,1967.

Usually, the most popular Sinatra songs are not his best work. But singing this song was one of the best things Sinatra had done, and the album version is pure perfection.
