FREDDIE (Sir Ian McKellan):
So who were you squawking at on the phone?
STUART (Sir Derek Jacobi):
Wha …! My mother, if you must know.
Was she calling to tell you when she’d be dying?
She was very distraught.
Why? Did you finally tell her about us?
I’m waiting for the right time.
It’s been 48 years!
… and there has not been a right time! Now please don’t pressure me, I’m very emotional already. We’ve had some frightful news: Clive is dead.
Your mother is always the first to know when someone dies. Is she getting the news directly from Satan?
Cover Battle: “Que Sera Sera” April 5, 2013
I vaguely remembered the original version of this, sung by Doris Day. It sounded like what you’d expect from a Doris Day song: bright and upbeat, happy and lilting. You know – nice and sweet. Later, when I “discovered” Holly Cole (after catching her on PBS) and I heard her slowed down, jazzy version I absolutely fell in love with it. (And trust me, you’ll be seeing a few more examples of Ms. Cole’s unique take on things in upcoming cover battles). I just found the Sly and the Family Stone and Corinne Bailey Rae versions. I quite like them, but when I think of this song, Holly’s version is what I gravitate to.
