I once made a CD with 13 versions of "My Funny Valentine" which was probably a dozen too many. Happy Valentine's Day, Alex!

Bill -- & to you too

Durl -- there are over 600 different recordings of the song. but sadly Mitzi intro'd it on Broadway in the days before original cast albums. so I've not been able to find a recording of her original version.
