Originally written by Cuban songwriter Osvaldo Farrés and known as “Quizás, Quizás, Quizás”, the English lyrics were written by Joe Davis.
It was first recorded in 1948 by Desi Arnaz (whose better half was the hilarious Lucille Ball) but it was the classic Doris Day version which cemented this song’s place in music history.
I put together this karaoke video for my online English Language students in China, Japan and Korea.
It features photos of Melbourne’s lovely Botanical Gardens.
Music production was by New Zealand producer, Gavin Northcroft (see previous post).
There’s no bouncing ball, but lyrics are provided, so there’s no excuse not to belt it out!
For the computer muzos out there, it was sequenced using Propellerhead’s ‘Reason’. (Yes, I know, ‘propellor’ should have an ‘o’, but, er… it’s Swedish, after all…)
