Exploring the history of the groove

Que Sera, sera (whatever will, be will be)

Doris Day’s song “Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)” was released in 1956. It became her biggest hit and debuted in the thrilling Alfred Hitchcock movie The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Day got the lead role alongside James Stewart. The producers of the film did envision a blonde woman for the role, but some of them were reluctant in hiring Day because they thought of her only as a singer, not an actress.

Doris Day actually wasn’t thrilled with the song because she thought it was childish. So she recorded it in one take and claimed that it would be the last anyone heard of it. Despite what she thought, it won the 1956 Oscar for Best song along with the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
