"So in Love" is a popular song, written by Cole Porter, from his musical Kiss Me, Kate, (opening on Broadway in 1948)[1] based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. It was sung in the show by Patricia Morison, reprised by Alfred Drake[1] and further popularized by Patti Page in 1949.

The Page recording was issued by Mercury Records as catalog number 5230,[1][2] and first reached the Billboard chart on February 12, 1949, lasting two weeks and peaking at No. 13.[3]

Other versions which were popular that year were by Gordon MacRae and Dinah Shore.[1]

The song has been recorded by many other significant female singers, including Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald.
