For the inaugural edition of Ms Laure's Song of the Month, I've chosen to debut with a song from the classic film "Funny Girl" complete with overture, in which Barbra Streisand plays a female version of Al Jolson (although she's a friendlier version!) and she sings this solo with such heart-felt emotion. It's called My Man. It's from the final scene of the film when her husband returns from jail, visits her backstage at a concert and then breaks her heart and leaves her.
I also love Billie Holiday's version of this song.
