Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he is taking us all to the movies! Jim has chosen the theme: A SONG FEATURED PROMINENTLY IN A MOVIE.
I have my salted caramel popcorn all ready to munch and I am looking forward to a fantastic range of songs today from all who take part in SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. Thank you for all of the support for my posts while I was away in Australia. My tablet was very unhappy whilst out in Australia and continually crashed (I don’t know what the technical term is for your tablet flashing on an off and freezing every time you try to use it), so I couldn’t do much on WordPress while I was away.
The highlight of the outbound flight from London Heathrow to Adelaide Australia was finding The Sound Of Music was one of the movies available on the on-board entertainment channels. If you were the passenger with the long legs, wearing Doc Martins, and casting a surly glare in my direction, yes that was me singing and dancing in the aisle.
Well, if I ever needed an excuse to post one of my favourite songs ever…a song that lifts my heart the moment I hear the introductory build-up…a song that captures the essence of perhaps the best of musical movies, Jim has set me up perfectly today!
Are you ready for the wonderful Julie Andrews, exuberant as she sings the triumphant “The Hills Are Alive”. Enjoy!!!!
This song is sang later on by the children who sing it for the baroness, and their father Captain Von Trapp joins them for the final lines.
The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears
My heart wants to beat like the wings of a bird
That rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
Over stones on its way
To sing through the night
Like a lark who is learning to pray
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I heard before
My heart will be blessed
With the sound of music
And I’ll sing once more
