song from Glass Bottom Boat

Unread post by tickertom »

There is a record that Doris plays on Rods console stereo. The record appears to be on VERVE label. The name of the song is BosaNova.... I was wanting to know if anyone in the forum knows the artist playing on this 33 1/3 rpm ? She puts it on to play right before Rod comes home from a meeting at work where they are discussing her as being a possible spy.

I have love Doris Day since i was a kid and remember hearing LOVE SOMEBODY with Buddy Clark on a 78 !

Thanks,
Tommy

I know exactly the tune you mean and I love it - unfortunately I do not know the title- I am sure some of our experts will come up trumps though.

Isn't Doris wonderful in that scene, and looks so hip/ with it, current - for the time.

The song is called Bosanova...... Its the artist name that i am looking for. I wanted to search e-bay for the record so as to hear the other songs. I believe Amazon has a listing for a cd that includes this song and you can hear a sample of it. I dont believe it is the original album soundtrack.

Yes, Doris is wonderful as usual and i have almost all of her DVDS. I started collecting the Doris Day Show (series).....

Kind Regards,
Tommy

Stan Getz did a few Bossa Nova albums in the 1960s and I have at least two- and this is not on either of them.

That is the right song. Will have to do an ebay search for the record. The record label is VERVE, and i want to get it; but mostly to see what other songs are on it. I'm not sure if this contain the same songs as the original record did....as i would love to hear what they were as well.....

thanks,
Tommy

Just purchased the above CD from amazon. It's quite good. All classics from MGM films mostly played by the famous MGM studio orchestra. The bossa nova from The Glass Bottom Boat was composed and conducted by Frank DeVol for the movie. If you would like to listen to it it's there http://www.box.net/shared/88896r3kee

I also recall some really pleasant and enjoyable background music during the party scene -- in it, the piano plays a prominent part - its an upbeat tune and performed in a 'high society' style - wish I knew the name of it. Those films often featured good background music - nice tunes though on many occasions the exact titles were not featured on the closing credits. BTW, the pianist on that brief musical section was excellent ! Does anyone here know much more about it ?
