Que Sera Sera

Though this song has been covered by dozens of artists, Day originated it for Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Fly Me To The Moon

Doris Day recorded this song on November 5, 1964, for her album Latin For Lovers.

Dream a Little Dream of Me

This song was on Day's album Day by Night. It was originally performed by Ozzie Nelson.

I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Tony Bennett performed with Day on her television series, The Doris Day Show. She hated television work, but was locked in a contract set up by her husband.

Let the Little Girl Limbo

I don't know why this song isn't played at more weddings.

The Thrill of It All

In case you need a bigger dose of Day, you can watch this entire film here.
