ABC Wednesday - Round 10 - Q is for ...



The songs just ran through my mind, but writing an introduction for them just eludes me. So instead, I'll just launch into them.

Here they are, my Q songs:



Quando Quando Quando 

Italian or Portuguese for "When When When", Quando Quando Quando is an Italian pop song from 1962 composed by Tony Renis and written by Aloberto Tresta.

It was originally sung in English by Pat Boone, but the song was made famous by Engelbert Humperdink.

It has also been sung by many other artists including Connie Francis (in Italian), Cliff Richard, Michael Buble and Nelly Furtado (duet). But as I like Engelbert's version the best, here it is:

Quizzaz Quizzaz Quizzaz 

Also known as "Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps", is a pop song by Cuban songwriter Osvaldo Farres who  wrote the music and original Spanish lyrics for the song.

The English lyrics were written by Joe Davis but are not a translation of the Spanish lyrics.

Several artists have recorded this song including Nat King Cole, Trini Lopez, and Celia Cruz.

Here is Nat King Cole's very soothing version from his album Cole Espanol:

But I also found this version by a Korean singer that has a faster beat. Enjoy.

Que Sera Sera 

Whatever Will Be, Will Be, was written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans. The song was  made popular by Doris Day and was introduced in the Alfred Hitchcock film "The Man Who Knew Too Much" in 1956 (starring Doris Day and James Stewart).

Doris Day's version of the song was a hit in the US and the UK and from 1968 to 1973 it was the theme song for "The Doris Day Show". It became her signature song.

Que Sera Sera became a figure of speech though it is not grammatical in any language.

Wish you all an awesome day. Perhaps (quizas) this is your day when (quando) dreams come true or if not then whatever will be will be (que sera sera).
