Rodgers and Hammerstein composed them, I think a few (Like Mother Superior) was an old catholic song, most of them composed directly for this musical. And that they follow the storyline.

ie:

Family dont know how to sing so Julie teaches them with do a dear....etc

Lonley Goat Song is a puppet cabaret for the entertainment of Baroness Schrader

Another Good Rodgers and Hammerstein song was preformed in the South Pacific sung by Mitzy Gaynor "Im gonna wash that man right outta my hair"

Julie Andrews has good pitch, now since she had throat surgery she apparently can only sing Happy Birthday.

Oh really??? Yeah The Old one Leisel "Im 16 And I dont need a Governess" (Charmaine Carr) is the Godmother of Gretl (Youngest Von Trapp)

It was halarious with technology back then, they were lypsyncing and a voice over when they sung, only Christopher V. Trapp and (Christopher Plummer) and Maria (J Andrews) were the only 2 who actually sung.

Are you kiddin? All these songs are Greeeaaaaaaaaaaat!! lol

Anyway, I based my judgement on the bases of the scene that was being played during the song.

So for me I loved "Do Re Mi". I liked the scenery and the way they jumped on the steps and rode their bikes and the different clothes that they had on. I also liked the fact that this scene is about teaching one to sing.:)

My favorite scene in the entire movie is when Maria and the Captain are dancing the Waltz and she realizes that she is in love with him and he realizes that he loves her and yet they both are afraid to admit it to each other.

I also love the song.."My favorite things". The storm and the lyrics are nice.

I like the lyrics to " "How do u solve a problem like Maria" as well.

I really enjoy the Lonely Gothard song. The puppet show is nice.:)

my top three are:

Do Rei Mi, Lonely Gothard and "So long farewell":)

I like the song the nuns sang about Maria.

"How do you solve a problem like Maria? How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?"

Ooh can't choose, I know the movie by heart and I love almost all the songs (except Edelweiss, ugh), but chose So Long Farewell, could just as well have chosen Do-re-mi or 16 going on 17 tho :) (or Favourite things, or How do you solve a problem like Maria, or, or, or....;))

I love them all but voted for 16 going on 17 because it's the most romantic and it was that number that originally made me fall in love with the movie.

I like them all! "The sound of music" is one of those films that makes the Christmas holidays great! The songs are very catchy and especially "Do Re Mi" is one of those songs who keeps popping up once in a month. Also, in the movie, I absolutely adore the scene where they stand on stage and sing Edelweiss with the whole crowd joining in...
Just loving it...

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 the
birds that rise from the lake to the trees
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 the
birds 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've heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I'll sing once more

Climb ev'ry mountain
Search high and low
Follow ev'ry by-way
Every path you know
Climb ev'ry mountain
Ford ev'ry stream
Follow ev'ry rainbow
'Till you find your dream
A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Everyday of your life
For as long as you live
Climb ev'ry mountain
Ford ev'ry stream
Follow ev'ry rainbow
'Till you find your dream
A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Everyday of your life
For as long as you live
Climb ev'ry mountain
Ford ev'ry stream
Follow ev'ry rainbow
'Till you find your dream

Very inspirational ;)
