Default "Fever"- how many times has this been recorded?

Are there any websites with these figures? I think I've heard more versions of 'Fever' than any other song- and it's a fantastic song! Try list all versions you've heard/find online.

Peggy Lee
Bette Midler
Michael Bublé
Beyonce
Daniel Ash
Madonna
Little Nell (really great very pop 80's version)
Elvis Presley
Ella Fitzgerald
Ray Charles featuring Natalie Cole

Fever

- Artists: The McCoys
- peak Billboard position # 7 in 1965
- previously charted by Little Willie John (# 24 in 1956)
- previously charted by Peggy Lee (# 8 in 1958)
- later charted by Rita Coolidge (# 76 in 1973)
- Words and Music by John Davenport - and Eddie Cooley


Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that's so hard to bear
You give me fever (you give me fever) when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight (you give me fever)
Fever ... in the mornin'
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the day time
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
'cause I know you're gonna treat me right
You give me fever (you give me fever) when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight (you give me fever)
Fever ... in the mornin'
Fever all through the night (WOW!!)


Everybody's got the fever
That is somethin' you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long time ago

(You give me fever)
Baby, turn on your love light (yeah, yeah)
Let it shine on me (yeah, yeah)
Well, baby, turn on your love light (yeah, yeah)
And let it shine on me (yeah, yeah)
Well, just a little bit higher (yeah, yeah)
And just a little bit brighter, baby (yeah, yeah)


You give me fever (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You give me fever (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You give me fever (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You give me fever.

END OF THE McCOYS 1965 VERSION

Alternative verses found in Peggy Lee's 1958 version: NOT verified by this
transcriber but thought to be correct.


Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said, "Julie baby you're my flame"
Thou givest fever when we kisseth
Fever with thy flaming youth
Fever I’m on fire
Fever yea I burn forsooth

Captain Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said "Daddy oh don't you dare"
"He gives me fever with his kisses"
"Fever when he holds me tight"
"Fever, I’m his missus"
"Daddy won't you treat him right?"

Now you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Cats were born to give chicks fever
Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
We give you fever when we kiss you
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn, ah
What a lovely way to burn

Paris Bennett sang it on American Idol, and April Walsh did, but they didn't show it, so I guess it doesn't count.

My guess would be Lil' Willie John. He sang the original version of "Fever" back in 1956 before Peggy Lee's version was a classic. I have Madonna's version on the "Erotica" CD and I also have Lil' Wille John's original version on CD too.

Yeah, Elvis recorded it on his 1973 "Aloha From Hawaii" album and it was awsome. I think Elvis did it best.. as usual!

Actually, he first recorded it back in 1960 on the "Elvis Is Back" album.
