Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera) by Doris Day

“Whatever Will Be, Will Be” was written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evan’s team and sung by Doris Day. It was known as a popular and catchy hit in the 60’s. The song was written for Doris Day to sing in the movie, The Man Who Knew Too Much. Originally, the film director Alfred Hitchcock didn’t want Doris Day in this film. But he was later bribed by being told James Stewart and Doris Day came as a package deal. After her addition Hitchcock requested for Doris Day to have a song in the production because she was a singer in real life. He wanted the song to include a foreign language because her costar, James Stewart was a traveler who went to many foreign countries all over the world. The writers included Que Sera, Sera throughout the song to satisfy Hitchcock’s request.
