"(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."

Cover versions

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

American country singer and songwriter Hunter Hayes frequently covered this song on most of his live performances as well.

Commercial 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 and number two Hot Adult Contemporary Singles.

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