“I’m the Greatest Star!” – Funny Girl

Music: Jule Styne   Lyrics: Bob Merrill

Fanny Brice displays plenty of moxie when she announces herself in this exclamation of song from this musical based on the famed comedian’s life.  Undeniably, she was one of the greatest stars of her day and the headliner of the highly-rated radio program The Baby Snooks Show which first aired on this day in 1944.
