Every Time We Say Goodbye by Ella Fitzgerald

Album: Sings the Cole Porter Songbook (Vol 1)Released: 1956
  • This Cole Porter song was introduced in the 1944 musical revue Seven Lively Arts. Ella Fitzgerald's version is generally considered to be the definitive interpretation, but other notable covers include ones by Ray Charles, John Coltraine, Nina Simone, Carly Simon, Sara Vaughn and Robbie Williams. Simply Red's note-by-note cover of Ella Fitzgerald's version took the song to #11 in the UK in 1987.
  • Cole Porter incorporated a musical joke in the song's score by including a chord change that goes from minor to major in opposition to the lyric "how strange the change from major to minor."
