Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Fever”

Peggy Lee – Juluka

Oh, it’s getting hot! It gives me Fever!

Peggy Lee’s version of this Blackwell/Cooley song had almost become a parody of itself over the past fifty years. That’s only because Ms. Lee did it so right. Just voice, bass, finger snaps and a touch of drum fills is all that’s needed.


Johnny Clegg and the South African band Juluka come down with a different Fever. From the 1985 album Stand Your Ground.
