Falling in love with old school musicals.

Recently I have been spending my evenings getting lost inside the wonderful world of old school and recent musical movies. It started due to the fact that there were a few musicals that I had never seen, who are well known classics, that get referenced a lot. So I thought by myself why not have a musical movie night. Since that night I can’t stop watching different kinds, it is my new bed time routine to watch a new musical movie before going to bed. I find it amazing how those old school movies are made, they have that “je ne sais pas feeling”, that instantly make you happy and ready to dance! I also love making my room really cosy, when i watch a movie. Its the perfect time to put on my new summery twinkle light’s, who make the room light up with that late summer evening vibe. Next I always need a little snack like a little bowl of chips or fruit if I am in a healthier kind of place. Of course I can’t forget about a nice drink as well, I prefer a nice warm hot tea. Then I fill my bed with cushions and press play.

So for this Music post, I want to change things up a bit 😉 Instead of presenting a great artist, I will give a list of must watch musicals, introduced by a lyric of my favourite song of the movie 🙂

  1. “Getting to know you, putting it my way but nicely, You are precisely my cup of tea”  The king and I  (1956)

  4. “When we go out at night and stars are shinin’ bright, up in the skies above, or at the high school dance, where you can find romance” Grease (1978)
  5. “Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” The wizard of oz (1939)
  6.  “And every task you undertake, Becomes a piece of cake
    A lark! A spree! It’s very clear to see that” 
    Mary poppins (1964)
  7.  “On to your Waterloo, whispers my heart Pray I’ll be Wellington, not Bonaparte” Gigi (1958)
