Well, that got me watching the original movie - the man who knew too much - and its wonderfully corny ending.. Smiley

Doris Day really belts out  Que Sera Sera in that movie, doesn't she?   IRC, that song got very high on the pop charts, back in the day. amazing how things have changed.

Yes, the version in he movie is really harsh - not the gentle motherly one on the recording at all!

In at least oe scene, she's trying to drown out the sound of hubby (Jimmy Stewart) searcing for her long lost baby boy. I'd belt it out too.



Change of subject,sorta.  Fave song from the 70s: Morning Has Broken.   Cat Stevens

Was that just a US hit,or was it international?

It's also funny how rarely there are mega hits and household name groups anymore.   I just can't see Lady Gaga, for example, having the staying power of the Beatles.  Times have changed.  But I suppose that's because groups back in the day were pioneers in a lot of ways.  Groups these days have to get over a much higher bar because everything's been done already.

exactly.  I mentioned exactly the same thing on another topic just now - re TV. Art forms die out because you have to compete with the accumulated produce of the previous n years...

yes - which means the genre is finished.  I think we are no the verge of an enormous change, one that will make most of the things we take for granted obsolete.

brace yourselves...
