A Cole Porter composition, this popular jazz standard debuted in the 1928 musical Wake Up and Dream and was first performed by English singer Elsie Carlisle. Its legacy has endured through covers by Billie Holiday, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald.
Gwyneth Paltrow performed this song as Kitty Dean (originally written as Peggy Lee) in the Truman Capote biopic Infamous (2006).
English singer Lemar performed this in the 2004 Cole Porter biopic, De-Lovely (named for "It's De-Lovely"), while actress/big band singer Ginny Simms sang it in the 1946 biographical film, Night And Day, also named for its title song.
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
