Julie Andrews - The sound of music

My favorite things

Come non dedicare spazio ai baffi dei gattini, ai fiocchi di neve sulle ciglia e alla vecchia, cara carta da pacchi avana, perdipiù legata con lo spago? Naturalmente invece dello strudel laDirce offrirà davanti allo schermo una più domestica torta di mele. In effetti la combinazione Julie Andrews + Rodgers&Hammerstein è assolutamente un toccasana, specie nelle giornate d’autunno un po’ grigie.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

(Durante la guerra fredda la BBC aveva inserito la colonna sonora di The sound of music nella playlist da trasmettere alla radio per tranquillizzare la nazione nel caso di una guerra nucleare. Una ragione ci sarà).

Qui l’elenco di tutte le versioni di My favorite things, redatto dalla professionalissima redazione di Fahrenheit (Radio3 Rai).

My favorite things, musica di Richard Rodgers, parole di Oscar Hammerstein. da The sound of music, regia di Robert Wise, 1965. Il musical teatrale dal quale il film è tratto debuttò a Broadway nel 1959.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

And then I don’t feel so bad.
