One of the most recognizable pieces of music from the 1950s, Peggy Lee’s version of Fever is forever etched into the fabric of pop culture. The song was written by the songwriting team of Eddie Cooley and Otis Blackwell and first recorded by R&B singer Little Willie John in 1956. Two years later, Peggy Lee and arranger Jack Marshall would slow the song down, crafting a deliberately sparse, dark arrangement to convey the song’s lyrics about desire. The song was led by the double bass and contained the minimalistic drumming of Shelly Manne. Peggy Lee’s version also includes modified lyrics by Peggy Lee herself. This smooth, sultry take on the song would push it to stratospheric heights of popularity, reaching Number 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100, spending a total of 12 weeks on the chart. At the first annual Grammy Awards, Peggy Lee’s version of Fever was nominated in the categories for Record of the Year, Best Female Vocal Performance, and Song of the Year.
