Is There An Exact Account of How Many Songs DD Recorded ?

One reads and hears all sorts of high numbers. She did record extensively.
Is there an exact or at least a rough estimate ?
Thanks.

IF YOU SAY "RECORDED"....that takes into account only those songs actually put on acetate. I would give a rough estimate of approximately 700 songs. If you add to that the songs she sang with Les Brown's Band, add another 75-100. Add to that the songs NOT RECORDED but sung on various radio shows from Bob Hope to Your Hit Parade to all the others on which she appeared in the late 40's, plus her own radio show (52 and 53), plus tv shows, etc...and I would say your rough estimate is now a minimum of 1000. Not bad!!!

As part of the Definitive Doris Day Discography I am currently putting together, I devoted a chapter on The Bear Family Records of Germany Boxed Sets (1992-1997). My analysis showed the commercial releases on Columbia Records totaled 512 Doris Day tracks released in single and album formats, and 64 previously unreleased tracks, for a grand total of 576 Doris Day recorded songs. When you add the 40 commercial tracks with Les Brown and Doris Day, the total of commercially released recordings is 616. Of course the hundreds of other tracks sung by Doris Day will add to that figure.
Happy Days,
