Good idea - easy to foget how her singing added to her appeal so much. I thought there would be more than 11 albums for some reason - but there were many film hits without albums, Teacher's Pet. Que Sera, Sera, etc.

I just saw this and placed my votes.

LMOLM is tops for me with so many terrific standards and ballads to choose from. Her version of 10 Cents A Dance is the best one ever and I love the big dance number, Shakin' The Blues Away. Another personal fave is the haunting Never Look Back.

Then comes Jumbo, Young Man With A Horn, Calamity Jane and Pajama Game.

I agree Michael about LMOLM album - and Doris' rendition of "Ten cents a dance." Also, [for me] no one does the title song better or "Mean to me."

I love Pajama Game as a film and I am wild about her earthy portrayal of feisty Babe Williams, but I'm not as crazy about Doris' songs - except for Hey There. The Rodgers and Hart songs in Jumbo! are more her style, and the torch songs she sang in Young Man With A Horn are mesmerizing. Too Marvelous For Words, With A Song In My Heart, etc. are classics. And then look at the range within the Calamity Jane score: the boisterous, the romantic and the rustic.

It's difficult to think of another film actress who covered as much musical ground as Doris Day.

A minor point but it has to be mentioned. There was an extended play album from April In Paris. There were four songs included in the album, (1) April In Paris, (2) I'm Gonna Ring The Bell Tonight, (3) I Know A Place, and (4) That What's Make Paris, Paree. Small, but it is still a movie album. My favorites are LMOLM, Calamity, Pajama, Jumbo, and YMWAH. Good quiz, look forward to the favorite LP quiz, which will be quite challenging. Happy Days, Texas Gonzalo

I can't remember my choice - except that LMOLM was first and Young Man...was on it.
