VICIOUS

FREDDIE (Sir Ian McKellan):

So who were you squawking at on the phone?

 

STUART (Sir Derek Jacobi):     

Wha …! My mother, if you must know.

 

FREDDIE:    

Was she calling to tell you when she’d be dying?

 

STUART:

She was very distraught.

 

FREDDIE:    

Why? Did you finally tell her about us?

 

STUART:

I’m waiting for the right time.

 

FREDDIE:    

It’s been 48 years!

 

STUART:

… 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.

 

FREDDIE:    

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.
