Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

"Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" (correct title is "Bewitched") is a show tune and popular song from the 1940 Rodgers and Hart musical Pal Joey. The song was introduced by Vivienne Segal in the 1940 Broadway production, and also sung by Miss Segal both on the 1950 hit record and in the 1952 Broadway revival. The song was performed by Carol Bruce in the 1954 London production.

The original lyrics present an unabashed celebration of feminine sexuality that has been bowdlerized in most covers to remove the song's blatant sexual allusions. Those allusions are preserved in Frederica von Stade's 1990 recording with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by John McGlinn.
