Did Barbra Streisand Re-Use An Old Version Of "My Man" For The Funny Girl Movie?
The answer seems to be yes, judging from the below video posted by Townhouse pianist Rick Unterberg.
The version of "My Man" used in the 1968 Oscar-winning film sounds eerily like the one Babs had already recorded in 1965 for her My Name Is Barbra album.
I mean, it's note for note.
Should they change her name to My Name Is Ballsy?
Should they rescind her Oscar and turn it into buttah?
When you've done a letter-perfect take of something, why try to do a new one?
