FlinterFile: Gary Shearston- I Get A Kick Out Of You
The Australian singer Gary Shearston had a big hit with this song in 1974.The song, however, is much older: it was first released in 1934. The text was written by Cole Porter and the first recording was done by Ethel Merman in Anything Goes, although it was meant to be released three years earlier already. The text was altered two times: the first version had a reference to Mrs. Lindbergh, the wife of the pilot Charles Lindbergh. When his song was kidnapped, Porter took it out. The second time the word cocaine was censored. Frank Sinatra recorded his version in 1954, which made the song popular. Gary Shearston’s version was a number 7 hit in the UK. Enjoy
