The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies EVER. It probably sparked my love of musicals and I have seen it more times than I can count. I know the words to all the songs and my love of Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer is deep. Dame Julie’s voice sounds like unicorns cried directly on her vocal cords. It is everything to me. EVERYTHING.
So last night when I realized the Sound of Music Sing-A-Long was playing on ABC, I had to drop everything I was doing to watch. This was a sing-a-long because they displayed the lyrics to every song on the screen (as if we needed it). I sing along every time I watch the movie anyway. They didn’t have to tell me twice.
I tuned in, sang loudly on my couch and tweeted along with my followers, who are also lovers of the classic. Every time I watch it, I act like it’s the first time because that’s what happens when we watch/read our faves. Below are my tweets. If you can’t view them, check out my Sound of Music livetweets on Storify.
Seriously. I must be at that festival. NOT PLAYING!
