A tender prequel to "Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love", Cole Porter's "You Do Something to Me" is a perennial classic from Porter's 1929 musical Fifty Million Frenchmen. It is a highly regarded standard at weddings and other events. This tune provides an elegant, slow-moving melody that allows string musicians to express their romantic sentiment. Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin" was made famous by Frank Sinatra. The phrasing in this arrangement imitates Sinatra's big band phrasing. Improvise to embellish the melody and learn how to play with just enough variation to make it uniquely yours. Score and Parts.
