Ella Fitzgerald Lyrics


Few artists stand as the very definition of the art they
practice, but Ella Fitzgerald is one of them. No jazz
singer can avoid being influenced by her, or at least
taking into account the monument of her work.
Fitzgerald didn't have the darkness of Billie Holiday, the
bravura of Sarah Vaughan or the acidity of Carmen McRae,
but what she did have was a suniness, a childlike joy and a
classic command of her craft that audiences picked up on
right away. Originally influenced by Connie Boswell, she
also swung like mad, and was one of More...

Review about Ella Fitzgerald songs
BILLY STRAYHORN | Reviewer: Jean
    ------ About the song Sophisticated Lady performed by Ella Fitzgerald

What did Billy Strayhorn have to do with the writing of the song? He doesn't seem to be given credit. I know too many African American artist have not been given credit for their contributions.

Nobody handles a lyric like Cole... | Reviewer: joan johnson
    ------ About the song Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love) performed by Ella Fitzgerald

I grew up listening to some wonderful music, courtesy of my Mother who loved a good lyric. When I heard "sentimental centipedes do it", I knew that Cole Porter was the master of them all.

Health Care | Reviewer: Alliancgen(at)aol(dot)con
    ------ About the song They All Laughed performed by Ella Fitzgerald


They all laughed at Christopher Columbus when he said the world was round. They all laughed when Edison recorded sound. They all laughed at Wilber and his brother when they said man could fly. They told folk that Health Care was a joke it's the same old cry. But ho-ho-h0 whose got the last laugh know.

The Meh List of song | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song You're Blase performed by Ella Fitzgerald

I was thinking about the "Meh List" ( a weekly feature in the NY Times), and suddenly realized "It's just like 'You're Blas'". I wonder if the Times people have ever heard of it.

What is green? No No No No | Reviewer: chocolate
    ------ About the song A-tisket A-tasket performed by Ella Fitzgerald

@Bethany Davis I don't see how much more simple you can get with a verse than Ella's version of "A Tisket A Tasket". It so simple that only a simpleton would think the lyrics are not easy to get.

Thrown out? | Reviewer: robyn Shmenn-Drake
    ------ About the song The Man I Love performed by Ella Fitzgerald

Perhaps the reason the song was cut out of all those shows was that in spite of the lovely, lilting melody, it had a corny lyric with facile rhymes. Although the song sets a wistful mood, the goegeous George Gershwin tune was the main reason it became a standard.

A grand old song | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song A-tisket A-tasket performed by Ella Fitzgerald

A Tisket, A Tasket and Lady be Good were Ella's signature/theme songs. Sometimes singers substitute the words a green and yellow basket for a brown and yellow basket, but that is about all the variations I have heard. There will never be another Ella Fitzgerald---truly the First Lady of the American Song Book!

Wait till you see HIM | Reviewer: Anne Tait
    ------ About the song Wait Till You See Her performed by Ella Fitzgerald

When Ella or any female singer does this lyric, she should change the line describing HIS glance as "pensive and sweet and wise" - not well suited to a male glance.
How about "thoughtful and strong and wise"?
Too bad we can't check with Larry Hart - I think he'd agree.
