listening to peggy lee, more precise to the cole porter song i’ve got you under my skin, reminded me of i’ve got you under my skin – but of the version by neneh cherry. and n had to admit that he has never heard her version and has never seen the very beautiful video by jean-baptiste mondino. great stuff. so here it is.
this version by neneh cherry comes from the sampler red hot + blue. the title refers to a cole porter musical and is a record full of cole porter songs by different artists. this sampler – reissued last year with all the videos included – has been the first release of the red hot organisation – an organisation raising awarenes and funds for the fight against aids. they put out an interesting series of compilations, which are from the quality of the music presented way above most benefit samplers. for more information please visit their website here.
then – neneh cherry is making music again – this time with a band called cirKus – their website you’ll find here.
and jean-baptiste mondino’s website is here.
and the here the website of kd lang – this because we conclude this post with another excerpt of the red hot + blue sampler, kd lang’s beautiful version of so in love:
