Que Sera Sera

So tell me, when you hear Doris Day singing this what do you think of?

And no, I don’t mean the girl on girl action that rumour has it young Doris was so fond of.

Dirty minded buggers that you are.

I am thinking more puppy dogs, fluffy kittens and the smell of moms fresh baked apple pie, right?

Well, how about this? Think film noir, an old and dilapidated carnival in the wee small hours of the morning, filmed in black and white, the torn striped canvas flapping desultory in the breeze and the moonlight playing menacingly over the clowns heads, each frozen in place and waiting open mouthed for the ping pong balls which haven’t come for years, each bearing an uncanny resemblance to our old friend Obo.

See if you can find any fucking fluffy kittens here:

    Bloody hell. Pink Martini*’s version is scary enough without the spooky video. I only got about halfway before I had to look out of the window at the blue skies and sunshine.

    *Who are rather good, by the way. I just wish they didn’t have such a gay name; people tend to give you Looks when you recommend them.

  2. Sam Duncan says:

    Yes, like that one.

  3. PT Barnum says:

    Wow. Thank you for the pointer to a band I’d never heard of. I love that sound. Must have more!

    Not just “girl on girl action”… Girl on anything, hence the comment from a co-star of a young, and somewhat dishevelled, Doris – “little Day you’ve had a busy man!”. :-)

    Cats, you are weird fuck, but funny thing, I like weird fucks!

    Superb, haven’t heard the PM version in a while, now trying to remember where I first heard it.

    I also seem to remember that Gino Washington and the Ram Jam Band did a fairly, er, bracing version of the song as well.

    Aw shucks, I’m glad y’all like it.

    I think my family would agree with you, but they wouldn’t mean it as a compliment.
