Fever is a song created in 1956 by Eddie Cooley and John Davenport (a pseudonym for Otis Blackwell). The song became a pop standard after being transformed with additional lyrics by Peggy Lee.
The first time I heard this song, it was sung by Michael Buble. The second time, it was Diana Krall who was singing it and then, Peggy Lee...that makes me think that when we listen a song, we can't know if the singer would be the author, and we can't imagine where this piece comes from. For me, it's really interesting to investigate who is the creator of a song! You have the possibility to learn a lot of things!

Other singers who have played the song: Madonna, Sarah Vaughan, Bob Dylan, Celine Dion, Elvis Presley,... I add you a version of Eva Cassidy!

I would like to recommend you a singer: Seal (www.seal.com). He is not the author of the songs, but he makes them reborn. I like it very much.

Thanks for your comments on my blog.
