My Funny Valentine

In some ways, “My Funny Valentine” is an unlikely song to have endured since the 1930’s… it is a rather atypical love song, imbued as it is with the rich irony and whimsy of its creative lyricist, Lorenz Hart. In this podcast, we celebrate the popularity and longevity of this ubiquitous Rodgers & Hart standard.


“My Funny Valentine” is performed by the following artists:

Charles McPherson
Carmen McRae
Bill Evans & Jim Hall
Miles Davis
Sarah Vaughan
Frank Sinatra
Chet Baker & Gerry Mulligan
Kate McGarry

  1. Back when it was (almost) possible to have an advertising-supported jazz radio station, radio station KJAZ, Alameda, California, would, on Valentine’s Day, play nothing but “My Funny Valentine” for 24 hours and not play the same version twice. Girls singers? Everybody!
