Alfred Hitchcock film song 'Que Sera Sera'

 
 
Reply Fri 27 Nov, 2009 02:46 pm
I have been watching a lot of old films from DVDs and was recently watching British Classics like Chasles Dickens 'Nicholas Nickleby', 'David Copperfield', Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre', Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice', Gandhi, Thackeray's 'Vanity Fair', Marie Antoinette and Alfred Hitchcock movies as well as. 'The Man Who Knew Too Much' has two versions. But the 1956 version has James Stewart and Doris Day in it and wonder of wonders the hit song 'Que Sera Sera' was from this movie.



There seems to be quite a lot of films that had song hits as I watch all those old movies on DVDs like 'Bye Bye Birdie' 'Three Coins in the Fountain', etc., etc.

@talk72000,
My favorite version of the song belongs to Pink Martini. It was on the soundtrack of an episode of Dead Like Me.

A surreal and wistful take on the song:

Now if you really want to have some fun, try and figure out a language in which, "que sera sera" means "what will be, will be."

I just saw 'Casino Royale' the original with Peter Sellars, David Niven and was I thrown with all those Burt Bacharach songs. I didn't know those songs came from Casino Royale.

@Brandon9000,
I think it would be Spanish or Italian. But the movie is set in Markech, Morrocco so it would be Spanish but the French to have controlled Morrocco so could be French.

I think you'll find that no matter what language you choose, "what will be will be" turns out to be something other than "que sera sera." In French, I think it would be something liken "ce qui sera, sera."

Movie: The Pajama Game Stars: Doris Day, John Raitt. I thought this was a naughty Romcom movie but no it is about a pajama factory. There was a very nice song that many singers used to sing it on TV.

First time I watched this film and heard this song I was moved by Doris Day's emotion.

@Philis,
Doris Day made a lot of movies but dvds have not comeout or maybe I am not aware as her movies are quite old. I see magazines showing some of her movies such as 'Teacher's Pet' with Clark Gable. That would be fun to watch.

Movie: Swing Time Stars: Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers



This movie was a surpeise as it was one of the best of Astaire and Rogers movies as it had songs which I didn't know became very popular and the dances were one of the best.

@Philis,
I just putthem in for the popular songs that seem to have originated from movies. I don't mind the dancing but was surprised that the songs came from those movies. I used to see a lot of variety shows on TV featuring singers who sang songs but I had no idea where the songs came from. I assumed that there was a song book that someone composed from some musical school.
