97 different versions of the song ” Fever “

“Fever” is a song written by Eddie Cooley and Otis Blackwell, who used the pseudonym John Davenport. It was originally recorded by Little Willie John in 1956. It has been covered by numerous artists from various musical genres, notably Peggy Lee, Elvis Presley, Ella Fitzgerald, Usha Uthup, Ray Charles, Nancy Sinatra, The McCoys, The Blues Band, Boney M., Amanda Lear, La Lupe, Madonna, Fishtank Ensemble, The Jam, The Cramps, Wanda Jackson, Bette Midler, Michael Bublé and Suzi Quatro.
The idea for the song was presented to Otis Blackwell by an old friend, Eddie Cooley. Blackwell said: “Eddie Cooley was a friend of mine from New York and he called me up and said ‘Man, I got an idea for a song called “Fever”, but I can´t finish it. I had to write it under another name because, at that time, I was still under contract to Joe Davis’.
Little Willie John reportedly disliked the song, but was persuaded to record it, on March 1, 1956, by King Records owner Syd Nathan and arranger and producer Henry Glover. His version was released in April 1956 and became a double-sided hit along with the top-ten R&B song “Letter from My Darling”. “Fever” reached number one for three weeks on the R&B Best Sellers chart. It also made the pop charts, peaking at number 24 on the Billboard chart
