Anything Goes is a song interpreted by Ethel Merman written and composed by Cole Porter in 1934 , extracted from the musical of the same name . This piece gives rise over the decades to many times and inspires many titles of original creations 1 .


In the mid-1950s, Frank Sinatra took it back and included it in his album Songs for Swingin ‘Lovers! . Almost simultaneously, a version appears in the album Chris Connor  (en) of the eponymous singer . A few months later, it is Ella Fitzgerald who makes a cover for his album  (in) of 1956; she will make another version sixteen years later. Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan make the track an instrumental version in 1957. Tony Bennett records a resumption of the song two years later with the Count Basie Orchestra .

The following decade, the Dave Brubeck Quartet takes back the title that then lends its name to the record Anything Goes! The Dave Brubeck Quartet Cole Porter Plays . The title was released as a single in 1967 in its version by Harpers Bizarre  (en) 2 .

Anything Goes is taken over by American artists Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett 3 . This is the first official single released July 29, 2014 from their joint album Cheek to Cheek of September 2014 and it gives rise to a clip 4 . The single was ranked 178 th in August 2014 in France.
