About the Song
"My Baby Just Cares for Me" is a song written by Walter Donaldson with lyrics by Gus Kahn. It was one of three hit songs from the 1928 musical Whoopee, starring Eddie Cantor and Ruth Etting. It is best known as the signature tune of singer and pianist Nina Simone. Simone recorded the song in 1958 for her debut album, Little Girl Blue. The track remained relatively obscure until 1987, when it was used in a UK television commercial for Chanel No. 5 perfume. To follow up this exposure, the track was released as a single by Charly Records[1], entering the UK Singles Chart on October 31, 1987 (1987-10-31) and becoming, at Number 5, one of Simone's biggest hits almost nineteen years after her previous chart entry. A claymation music video was produced by Aardman Animations and directed by Peter Lord. George Michael arranged and recorded a version of “My Baby Just Cares for Me” for his 1999 album.    Download this sheet!
