Fever - Peggy Lee + Elvis Presley

Fever is not a swing song per se but it swings. I'm sure you have danced to this groovy song. The most famous version of Fever was made by Peggy Lee in 1958, but I thought I share another version (in the video clip above) which is more uptempo (from the late 1960's according to the youtube poster).

Apart from the awesome groove that Fever has, the song's other great quality is the hits in the music. As a dancer it's always fun to interpret those hits by accentuating ones movements.

As an inspiration to what you can do, take a look at Elvis Presley performing Fever at a concert in 1973. He certainly got the moves, don't you agree?

What do you think of Peggy Lee and Elvis Presley singing Fever? Please comment.
