"My Funny Valentine": A Laughable but Heartfelt Playlist for My Wife on Valentine's Day

What's Your Reaction:

Written by the great Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart for the 1937 musical Babes In Arms, "My Funny Valentine" is one of those genuinely timeless standards that put the Great in the Great American Songbook. Today, as we were spending our pre-Valentine's Day Saturday doing such romantic activities as getting her car serviced, driving our kids around town and cleaning my home office, Fran somehow made me laugh many times. And though I'm the one whose "looks are laughable" and she's the "work of art," I dedicate this funny playlist to her with love.
