Ella Fitzgerald: “Too Darn Hot”

15 Dec

Cole Porter wrote Too Darn Hot for the Tony Award-winning musical Kiss Me Kate in 1948; covered by Ella Fitzgerald in 1956. Interesting to note the reference to the just-released Kinsey Report, which was released (for men ) in 1948 (women in 1953). In the film version of Kiss Me Kate in 1953, the line was changed from “according to the Kinsey Report,” to “according to the latest report,” because of the controversy.
