FAVORITE THINGS

|

Friday, December 13, 2013

For many a pretty girl who dreamed of a life as a Princess, life can be a disappointing tragedy, and all she has left are the memories of a little girl's dreams.

Julie Andrews had a lighter version of this song, and I'm sure Carrie Underwood is the perfect choice for the updated version of Sound Of Music; but Lorrie Morgan's video stole my heart with this song many many years ago.

Believe . . .

She has a very rich voice.
I watched the updated version and Carrie Underwood did well. (Not because I like musicals but because I'd performed some of those songs in band many years ago.)

Misha Gericke said...

That's a very charming video. Thanks for sharing it. :-)

Pretty voice. I like whiskers on kittens but not so much fur on keyboards.

Julie Dao said...

I love this song and have never heard this version! Thanks for sharing, Donna :) Hope you get to enjoy your favorite things this holiday season!

Pat Hatt said...

Not a bad version, still like andrews better I'd say

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

It is a lovely song and I think all the women did a great job with it.

I was on the streets for a time as a boy of six in Detroit and as an adult after Katrina -- you are not seen as a person but as a creature.

This holiday season we should all try to help some small way the homeless and poor.

May this holiday season be filled with tiny, healing surprises for you. :-)

No one can replace Julie Andrews in my mind. She'll always be the quintessential Maria and Mary Poppins and Eliza (in the Broadway version of My Fair Lady). Coloratura sopranos are few and far between. :-)

Aw jeez; I didn't even remember scheduling this post.

Alex: Usually I like just the music best, but with this song, I'm drawn to the words.

Hi Misha.

Diane: no, I don't like furry keyboards either.

Julie; yes, I'm already getting some favorite things for the holidays :)

Pat; yep, Julie Andrews was excellent. The Sound of Music is still one of my favorites.

Susan; I agree. Thanks for stopping by.

Roland; I've loved this song and video many years before meeting you, but always think of you whenever I watch it now. Your life story has touched my heart.

Lexa: LOL, agreed.

Loved the video and the song. I guess it's just me, but I didn't think Carrie Underwood did as bad as the reviews say, idk I guess it's me.

Hi Donna,

I simply remember my favourite things and then I don't feel so bad...

Indeed and the memories of childhood dreams are still embraced because we believe in the wisdom of our inner child.

A lovely video by a lovely lady.

Have a peaceful rest of your weekend.
