Musical Moments – The Sound of Music

Last Monday evening I had a truly fantastic experience of seeing one of my all time favourite films on the big screen at the cinema for the very first time. I have easily seen this film over 100 times and I still cried and felt emotional seeing it on the big screen. The picture quality was truly outstanding and I really hope that more old films are screened at the cinema. Thanks Cineworld!

So this Monday I am sharing a couple of songs from the film, because they are just fantastic! I actually find it odd when people say they have never seen The Sound of Music.

Look at the way the nuns move around!

The Sound of Football Coming Home!

Tonight The Sound of Music is back on at the cinema and I will be heading along to see it! Over the weekend I made this video as I couldn’t help but get involved in all of these It’s Coming Home videos, this popped in my head and I just had to make it!

England reaching the semi final of a World Cup, the last time that happened I was two turning three! Back in 1990!

Musical Moments – A Star Is Born (Judy Garland)

From the first moment I saw A Star Is Born with Judy Garland I was totally mesmerised by her incredible performance. The moment we see her put everything into ‘The Man That Got Away’ is incredible.

The release of the trailer for the new version of the film starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga came out last week (Click here if you missed it) and it made me constantly think about this song and that I must watch this version again soon!

Musical Moments: Evita – Don’t Cry For Me Argentina

Tomorrow I am going to see Evita for the third time and it really is one of my favourite shows. So many fantastic ballads and moments in what can only be described as a truly depressing evening at the theatre. But I mean that in truly the best way possible as it is haunting and heartbreaking in a well amazing way!

Here is Madelena Alberto (who is in current UK tour) singing Don’t Cry For Me Argentina

Musical Moments – Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You

Today is the 10th anniversary of Heath Ledger’s tragic death at 28 years old, I wanted to put together something as a celebration of his life and the incredible performances he left us with.

Today’s musical moment is such a great scene from 10 Things I Hate About You when Ledger sings “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”

Forever Rest in Peace Heath ❤

Musical Moments: Leading Ladies – Wind Beneath My Wings

On Friday the Leading Ladies which is a supergroup made up from three amazing West End ladies in Beverley Knight, Amber Riley and my absolute favourite Cassidy Janson. Their first album was released Songs from the Stage and an added bonus that they performed on Children in Need singing Wind Beneath My Wings, which is one of the songs on the album!

So this is todays musical moment, if you enjoy this you really should get the album which has a mixture of popular songs and musical favourites, with the three ladies sounding just fantastic together!

Musical Moments – Take a Chance on Me (Julie Walters)

To continue the celebration of Julie Walters becoming Dame Julie Walters I thought what better way than to have a musical moment to cheer everyone up on this cold Monday than a clip from Mamma Mia!

This is an absolutely hilarious moment in the film and as always Walters is outstanding I think the fact that she is acting opposite Skarsgard makes it even better as lets face it he is pretty great all the time as well.
