Home Music Doris Day Tells Paul McCartney: Que Sera Sera

Doris Day is pretty reclusive and doesn’t give interviews. But she’s given one to Paul McCartney, who went to see her in Carmel, California. The occasion is her “new” album which comes out next week, called “My Heart.” The interview appears in the UK newspaper The Telegraph. Paul and Doris, who’s 87 now, talk about animals rights, her late son Terry Melcher, her signature song “Que Sera Sera,” and Alfred Hitchcock.When McCartney mentions Melcher, he comments that Day’s son “didn’t push himself too much.” He adds: “I didn’t either, come to think of it.” Paul, surely you jest! Anyway, it’s great to hear from and see Doris Day again. Doris, about ten different important awards shows and events want to honor you, if only you’ll say yes–from the Grammys to the Oscars to the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

  1. Oh how I wish Doris Day would show up on the Oscars! It’s the ONLY thing that would get me to turn it on. Really! I LOVE her music, and I miss seeing her on television, even if it’s just to say, “Hi! Everyone!”

  2. When McCartney mentions Melcher, he comments that Day’s son “didn’t push himself too much.” He adds: “I didn’t either, come to think of it.”
    Can someone explain what that means?

  3. This article misrepresents Paul when it states that he said that Terry Melcher “didn’t push himself too much.”

    What happened was, Doris Day first said, “I get mail from his friends all the time saying he [Terry] had so much talent and he was always laid back. He didn’t push himself.”

    Paul congenially replied, “I knew Terry a little bit in the Sixties and he was a really nice man. But you were right, he didn’t push himself. I didn’t either though come to think of it.”

    Where’s the “jest” in that?

    Nonetheless, it’s great to have Doris recording again!
