List: Fever

“What a lovely way to burn!”. The famous song originally sung by Little Willie John but ever since crossed over and became a pop standard after being transformed, with additional lyrics, by Peggy Lee, So here you have my 7 favorite covers of this amazing song! It seriously never gets old! let the countdown commence:

7- Madonna – Fever [Download]

6- Sophie Milman – Fever [Download]


5- Little Willie John – Fever [Download]


3- Peggy Lee – Fever [Download]

2- Ray Charles – Fever (Feat. Natalie Cole) [Download]

1- Beyonce – Fever [Download]

Let me justify this list, Madonna’s #7 because turned the song into a dance song, and i personally hate dance/techno music, but nevertheless it’s a great cover, but not as good as the other ones! Sophie Milman is a great artist, most noted for her HUGE jazzy debut, She covered this song in her latest album “To Make Someone Happy” which is a great album full of covered songs and original ones, She did this song justice, i love the piano in this song and the horns, it’s well-produced song! Little Willie John’s version which is also the original version of the song without the later-added lyrics, His voice is magnificent! this song is a classic! Michael Bubble’s version is nothing short of a masterpiece, it’s included in his debut album which was hailed by a lot of critics and did really well. Next is Peggy Lee’s version, I LOVE this version, Peggy Lee is so beautiful as a person and her voice is just as pretty! This song is so simple it makes it all the more brilliant! Ray Charles… The reason this is #2 is because of his amazing voice and the dialog-like verses between him and Natalie Cole, Whose voice is AMAZING!! a goddamn powerhorse! and #1 is Beyonce’s version, it might be because i adore her, but no that’s not it, beyonce’s version is a bit different from the others, she brings something ghetto to the song lol, which suits me perfectly, i know most people would disagree, but seriously her voice shines through this song, and the way she sings the “Romeo loved juliet..etc.” line, she does it different that all the others versions with her ghetto vibe! I love this version!

hope you enjoyed this list!
