What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?

"What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?" is a song with lyrics written by Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman and original music written by Michel Legrand for the 1969 film "The Happy Ending" and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Legrand won the 1973 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying a Vocalist for a version performed by Sarah Vaughan. More than thirty years later, Billy Childs, Gil Goldstein, and Heitor Pereira won the 2006 Grammy Award for the same category for a version performed by Chris Botti and Sting.

Apart from the award winning versions, the song has been covered by many renowned artists including Frank Sinatra, Dusty Springfield, Johnny Mathis, Julie Andrews, Shirley Bassey, Andy Williams, Barbra Streisand, Alyssa Karas, Bill Evans, Paolo Jannacci and Joe Pass. The only nationally charted version of this song was Jaye P. Morgan's 1970 version on the Beverly Hills label.
