"Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" - Doris Day

While travelling up to Nottingham on Friday we had the radio active; the station played a mini-marathon of Doris Day songs, one of which was "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps":


Day's version of "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" is not the original: I learnt only this afternoon that it was Osvaldo Farr├ęs who initially wrote and composed the song, which he did in 1947. The rendition I am most familiar with is Mari Wilson's, as hers was used as the theme for the British sitcom Coupling (which I've never seen, but have overheard on several occasions).

Regardless, I like the song no matter who the performer is. The other day was the first time I'd heard it in years.
