Actress and performer Doris Day has died on May 13, 2019, at the age of 97. She appeared in dozens of films through the years. In each movie, she sang a tune (usually the theme). Which song is your favorite? What will the results be? I say, "que sera sera!"
Note: Song titles are links to YouTube.

Thanks for your pick... yes it is so sad!  Doris was always one of my favorites; I love watching her movies.  But she was 97; can't say she died young!  
Move Over Darling gets my vote!

OMG, I can not believe it when I wake up and I find this terrible news, I really enjoyed his films and in fact a few days ago I saw her in The Man Who Knew Much singing Whatever Will Be, Will Be. Spectacular

Great actress and singer, however, although it is difficult to choose, I stay with Pillow Talk

Yes, Pillow Talk is very funny!  She's been alive so long it's even more surprising now that she's gone.

Nia,

I updated the intro and question of your original post to match the intro and question in your list.

Thank you for adding the reference to "que sera sera!", Doris Day's signature song.

I'm having a hard time choosing. My initial vote:
Pillow Talk (1959)

Thank you very much; another user, leavey2, has posed the same poll suggestion.  We decided to wait for the admin to choose which will go live.  It doesn't matter to me.  :)  Thank you!

Just a thought, Why not have one poll dedicated to her best movie and the other dedicated to her best cinematic song performance? The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) and Que Sera Sera would get my respectively.

I like how you did this with  the songs and hyperlinks, nicely done. I think they should publish both this week, if not now maybe on April 3, Doris Day day.

Not particularly right now, but for the last 20 or so years, I could not listen to certain songs without a tear in my eye. That's one of those songs!! Over the Rainbow and Cat's in the Cradle are a couple more.
For Doris Day fans however, I think that is the #1 choice.
Sigh..............

FYI,  I was noticing TCM is doing a Doris Day tribute on June 9th. If you are a subscriber you can catch a dozen of her movies live or watch them later in the week on demand or stream via computer. A fair amount of the titles in your poll are being featured during TCM Remembers Doris Day 1922-2019 and also includes a Johnny Carson interview with her.
