A Cruel-Love-Themed Song by Bill Anderson, "I Get the Fever" 1

Brief Song History

On June 23, 1966, the ‘Whispering’ Bill Anderson first recorded the song entitled “I Get the Fever”.  Fortunately, it took less than two months to complete the tune’s recording. Then, on August 1, 1966, the song was released from his album I Love You Drops. Yet again, the Grand Ole Opry member produced a single that reached the top of the country music charts. Surprisingly, its chart reign lasted for a total of 19 weeks and stayed on top for one week. His third No. 1 song, “I Get the Fever” followed the success of his two previous big hits “Mama Sang A Song” (1962) and “Still” (1963). Unlike the first two singles, this song has a faster tempo. Two of his fellow country music stars and Grand Ole Opry members Jan Howard and George Hamilton IV recorded their own versions of the song in November 1966 and January 1967, respectively.

The Reason Behind Him Getting A Fever

Similar to Anderson’s signature song “Still”, “I Get the Fever” has themes of heartache and sorrow. The text narrates the memories of his failed love that continue to haunt him everywhere he goes. Unfortunately, those painful reminiscences are causing him to get a fever. And, the fever just intensifies with time driving him to leave the place filled withmemories of cruel love’. Poor man! He not only had his heart broken, those hurtful memories caused him to get fever as well. Folks, if such happened to you, would you get the fever too? We would be glad to hear your thoughts on the comment box below.
