(There's) No Gettin' Over Me

"(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" is a song made famous by country music singer Ronnie Milsap. Known by many fans by its less grammatically correct title "There Ain't No Gettin' Over Me" — the song's official title appears nowhere in the lyrics — the song became one of Milsap's biggest country and pop hits during his recording career.

Thom Jurek of Allmusic wrote that "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" — and the album from which it came — was "indicative of the times and the artists making hit records at the same time." Milsap's "urban country" style, as Jurek put it, was evident in the song, given its "sweet alto saxophone solo" and "chorus that reflects James Taylor's late-'70s attempts at crooning early rock.

A cover version was recorded by Heartland on their 2006 album I Loved Her First.

Chart performance

His 18th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in August 1981, "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" marked the apex of Milsap's popularity as a crossover artist, reaching No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song also appeared on Billboard's Hot Adult Contemporary Singles chart, stopping at No. 2.

A video was also produced of the song, and it has aired on The Nashville Network, CMT and GAC.
