About This Song
Cole Porter wrote “Let’s Do It” in 1928 for his first Broadway musical, Paris. It’s one of Porter’s list songs, a form that he excelled at. The song has been widely recorded, starting in 1929 with the Dorsey Brothers and Bing Crosby and Rudy Vallee and His Connecticut Yankees and steadily throughout the 92 years since it was written.
About This Version
Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett recorded “Let’s Do It” for their 2021 album Love For Sale, accompanied by The Brian Newman Quintet. I adore this recording, mainly because the first time I’ve ever heard the verse sung and Lady Gaga knocks the verse out of the park!
“Let’s Do It,” as well as Love For Sale is available on Apple Music.
