Julie Andrews: The Sound of Music: Opening Scene (1965)

Musical Dreams

The Sound of Music, by Julie Andrews, who sings the song from the 1965 film of the same name.
Via Youtube & Rodgers & Hammerstein

This is one of the most recognizable songs, from one of the most recognizable voices, Julie Andrews, ever produced at the hands of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, known simply as Rodgers & Hammerstein, one of America’s most famous song-writing duos. This might be quintessential American music, but it is a song that the world understands and appreciates and, most of all, enjoys. I have enjoyed it since my childhood at elementary school in Montreal, moments after the teacher first put the LP on the record player and out came this memorable song and so many others from this album. It was a time long ago, when unicorn dreams seemed possible and the hills were “alive with the sound of music.”
