Song of the Day: Patsy Cline, “She’s Got You”

Country music chanteuse Patsy Cline was born on this day in 1932. Starting as a pure country singer, she was encouraged to sing more pop-influenced material as well and she became a crossover star before dying in a plane crash before her 31st birthday. "She’s Got You" was a hit for her in 1962, reaching #1 on the Country chart, #3 on the Easy Listening chart, #14 on the Hot 100, #28 in Australia and #43 in the UK.

  1. Hi John – Scarlet Fever is horrible … I had it when I was in my mid-twenties … my father came rushing home – it was awful – he fed me etc … it gave her a great voice though.

    I heard someone say their song had been covered something like 432 times by 432 different singers – sorry forgotten who! Cheers Hilary

    1. My aunt (Dad’s sister) died from it. She was 6 and Grandma was expecting Dad, so I never met her. Patsy’s an example of “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” I’m not sure she would have had the career she did had her voice not been altered.
