Ella Fitzgerald – These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)” is a standard with lyrics by Eric Maschwitz, writing under the pseudonym Holt Marvell, and music by Jack Strachey, both Englishmen. Harry Link, an American, sometimes appears as a co-writer; his input was probably limited to an alternative “middle eight” (bridge) which many performers prefer.
