"(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" is a song written by Walt Aldridge and Tom Brasfield, and recorded by American country music singer Ronnie Milsap. It was released in June 1981 as the first single from the album There's No Gettin' Over Me. 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."
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 and number two Hot Adult Contemporary Singles.
