Between 1940 and 1967, over 180 singles featuring Doris Day were released across the world alongside countless EPs. Her songs were also regularly played on the radio and adorned pop charts in countries as far a field as England and Australia.

To produce a complete international release listing would be quite frankly impossible. Therefore, below are a selection of some of Doris's rarest picture sleeve singles with Top 20 chart listings for her two biggest singles markets (i.e. the United States of America & United Kingdom).

Montage of some international 7" single releases!

[ Important Note: The UK singles chart only began in 1952. Thus, although Doris Day had many best-sellers in the UK prior to this date there is no actual recorded chart position. Also the B side, record label and catalogue number for the UK single release may well differ to that of the US single release. ]
