Fever (Original Remixed for Stereo)

"Fever" was written by Eddie Cooley and John Davenport and originally recorded by Little Willie John in 1956. This recording became a #1 hit on the R&B charts and peaked at #24 on the pop charts during the summer of '56. A few years later the song was famously covered by Peggy Lee who added a few lyrics she wrote herself ("Romeo loved Juliet", "Captain Smith & Pocahontas") and the song went into the Top 10 becoming a signature song for Miss Lee.
