Cole Porter wrote “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” in 1936 for the film musical Born To Dance, where it was introduced by Virginia Bruce. The song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song, but lost to “The Way You Look Tonight.” This song has been recorded many times since it was written.
