Synesthesia: Music and Movies

Hello, fellas! (first time I didn't greet you as pals and gals... feels wrong!) I finally had my first week without tests since class started in December! And I will celebrate with a private screening of Adam's Rib with air-conditioning and chocolate. But before I engage in my personal definition of heaven, I would like to share with you guys a lighthearted post, just in case anyone is in need of some relaxation. And who isn't?

I wanted to share some of my favorite songs taken from classic films. In chronological order:

1. Cheek To Cheek - Top Hat (1935)

2. Smile - Modern Times (1936)

3. Tara's Theme - Gone With The Wind (1939)

 4. Somewhere Over The Rainbow -The Wizard of Oz

5. As Time Goes By - Casablanca

6 You'd Be Hard To Replace - The Barkleys of Broadway (1949)

7. They can't take that away from me - The Barkleys of Broadway (1949)

8.  Singing In The Rain - Singing In The Rain (1952)

9. Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1952)

10. Bye Bye, Baby - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1952)

 11. La Vie En Rose (Edith Piaf) - Sabrina (1954)

 12. I Love Your Funny Face - Funny Face (1957)

13. Moon River - Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)

14. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - Mary Poppins (1964)

15. Without You - My Fair Lady (1964)

Since this is a movie song list, I put Audrey's version here. But go listen to Julie's. There's nothing wrong with Marnie's voice, but Julie Andrews as Eliza Doolittle is as good as it gets.

16. Edelweiss - The Sound of Music (1965)

17. The Hills Are Alive - The Sound of Music (1965)

18. Climb Every Mountain - The Sound of Music (1965)

19. The Sound of Silence (Simon and Garfunkel) - The Graduate (1967)

20. Don't Rain on My Parade - Funny Girl (1968)

So long,


  1. Great picks! Thanks for posting these.

  2. Marvelous! I could bet a candy that we'd see a post of yours in Carnival.
    I'm specially fond of the musicals Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra did together, so my list would include some f these songs and a bunch of yours, too.

  3. Love 'Cheek and Cheek', Gone With The Wind and The Sound of Music. Enjoy Adam's Rib with your chocolate. It sounds perfect! xx
