Listen to Doris Day’s ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps’ from Sex Education, Season 3, Ep. 2

The legendary American singer and actress Doris Day’s ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps‘ played on the latest season of the Brit comedy drama Sex Education on Netflix this week — Sex Education, Season 3, Episode 2.

The song was heard on the radio as Eric is putting make up on Adam, and then as they begin to make out.

Doris Day’s ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps‘ was originally released in 1965 on the singer’s album Latin for Lovers via Columbia Records.

The song was re-released in the United Kingdom in 1992 as a stand-alone single.

Interestingly, while Day’s ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps‘ was loved by fans, it wasn’t originally her song nor was her version the only one released.

Instead, ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps‘ started out as a song called ‘Quizás, quizás, quizás‘, and was first released by Puerto Rican singer Bobby Capó in 1947.

Since then, it has also been recorded by Nat King Cole, Ben E. King, the rock band Cake, Andrea Bocelli, who recorded the Spanish version, and The Pussycat Dolls among others.

Doris Day’s version of the song, though, is especially lovely. No wonder it was chosen for the Sex Education soundtrack.

Listen to it in the video and on her album Latin for Lovers below. All three seasons of Sex Education are currently streaming on Netflix.
