Frank Sinatra- I’ve got you under my skin

This is, I think, the best live version. I love when he exclaims -after a rising crescendo, about 2:01 into the song- “Run for cover – run and hide!”

Here are two more versions, also great arrangements, etc.

“I’ve Got You Under My Skin” is a song written by Cole Porter in 1936. It was introduced that year in the Eleanor Powell musical film Born to Dance in which it was performed by Virginia Bruce. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year.

It became a signature song for Frank Sinatra, and, in 1966, became a top 10 hit for the Four Seasons.
