    Sound of Music

    It is one of the best musical films that I ever saw. I love the songs and the movie itself. What can you say about this movie and the soundtracks?

    I really agree! It´s a fantastic musical and I think I can all the songs and lines in my heard. I just think it´s a shame that the movie doesn´t follow the book about the "Familie Von Trapp". But really - that movie makes me cry over and over again.... "Theeeee HIIIIIIILLLLLLS areee aaaaaaaLIIIIIIVE, with theeeee SOOUND oooooff MUUUUUUUUUUSIC"

    I haven’t read the book so I can’t compare the movie with it. But I can say that I find the film totally amazing! It is one of the old movies that I will never get tired of watching.

    I agree. I thought the music was wonderful. I dont think today's generation gives it enough of a chance. It seems to be lost now a days for some reason. I thought it was great. Delightful, meaningful, 2 thumbs up, fine family fun.

    I love the musical both the story and the score, however it took until I was 30 to watch the film all the way through. I heard all the jibes prior to watching the movie and was put off by the reviews I heard. Thankfully one christmas my kids asked to watch it and we enjoyed the whole movie together.

    There are so many lovely, memorable songs in that film. It`s a classic.

    Some movies like "Sound of Music" are so universal. Almost everybody has seen it. The music is great and equally universal. It touches the heart. I did not know it was based on a book. That is news to me. I would certainly go through the book too, if I get my hands on it.

    I too am surprised to hear about the book. This thread caught my eye because I was speaking to someone about Sound of Music earlier (more specifically the reality TV show where they found a leading lady for Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical) it also made me think about the number of times I'll hear someone start humming a piece from the movie. It truly is universal.

    As a kid I remember liking it for the songs - then disliking it because I turned into a teenage boy and we don't like ANYTHING - I watched it again recently and was surprised with the depth of the story. In short....classic!

    Not having read the book, I curious about the differences. Are they historical points or some of the spoken or sung plot lines?

    I didn't know about the book either and am curious to know too. Nevertheless the music is good and it is a good musical, a classic as someone has already termed it. I have watched it about 5 times after getting it copied from my friend and wouldn't mind seeing it once more.

    I think the music is amazing considering how long it has been around. It must be one of only a few movie soundtracks where if you asked anyone around the world to sing or hum a tune from it the majority of folk would be able to do it. Which tune they would choose well I think they are all popular but perhaps 'Doe a deer' is such a catchy one.

    Playing Pizza Organ entails lots of Broadway medleys, and "Sound Of Music" has always been one of the most recognized & requested, even to today, in the few places that offer such entertainment.

    I just love that score, in fact, I love just about anything Richard Rogers ever composed.

    Smile I just saw that yesterday

    It was Spectacular with a capital "S"!! There isn't one dull song in it. They're all perfectly written. And Julie Andrews was just the Singer for the part of Maria. They had a perfect casting crew and a perfect composer.
