More Than You Know



More Than You Know (m. Vincent Youmans, w. Edward Eliscu, Billy Rose)

From the Wikipedia profile:

The song was introduced in the Broadway musical Great Day where it was sung by Mayo Methot. It was also popularized on the stage and radio by Jane Froman.[1] The most popular contemporary recordings[1] were by Helen Morgan (Victor catalog number 22149),[1][2] and by Libby Holman (Brunswick catalog number 4613).[1][3]

The song was subsequently included in three musical films: Hit the Deck (1955), sung by Tony Martin; Funny Lady (1975), sung by Barbra Streisand; and The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) sung by Michelle Pfeiffer (in a memorable introductory scene for her character).
