What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?
November 16, 1964
Written by Frank Loesser in 1947, “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” reached the top 10 of the BillBoard Best-Selling Retail R&B charts.
In addition to Diana Krall, it’s also been covered by Ella Fitzgerald. But Nancy Wilson’s ability to bring it up the Christmas charts in two, nonconsecutive years in the ’60s is probably the standard’s greatest claim to fame.
