Song of the Day #749

Song of the Day: Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered, a great Rodgers and Hart tune from "Pal Joey," kicks off our mini-tribute in honor of Halloween week (okay, so the song has nothing to do with witches and goblins, even if it has "bewitched" in the title... but I love it!). Listen to audio clips of renditions recorded by Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Linda Ronstadt, Benny Goodman (with Helen Forrest), Rod Stewart and Cher, Barbra Streisand, and Oscar Peterson and Stan Getz.


Didn't Sinatra record Bewitched?

Chris, I couldn't find any links to a Sinatra version, but a little digging turned up this information:

So, yes, he certainly did record it. Check out Songs by Sinatra for what appears to be a definitive listing of all his recordings. It's quite a list!
