Peggy Lee and Andy Williams – I’ve Got You Under My Skin (1966)

Thanks to Peggy Lee maven Ivan Santiago on the official Peggy Lee Bulletin Board (you can get there by clicking on the Miss Peggy Lee link in my blogroll, on your right), and thanks to Japanese YouTuber “yootami,” here is a musical clip that merits the overused phrase, “it just doesn’t get any better than this.” It also merits the overused “to die for.” The orchestral arrangement in bossa nova style of the Cole Porter standard isn’t credited, but I’ll take an educated guess that it’s by Dave Grusin. (I’ve heard him write for flute and muted trumpets in a way that sounds like what goes on here.)

Yootami has disabled embedding, so clicking on the video image below won’t make it play on my page — but it will direct you, with one more click, to the YouTube page where you can view it. So click on the arrow below. Bonus: You don’t even have to die in order to do it.
