Wonderful Wednesday...

"O, what a beautiful morning. O, what a beautiful day!
I've got a wonderful feeling...everything's goin my way!"

Do any of you recognize these words?  Do you know
Who sang them and from what movie?


This is one of my favorite songs.  It always cheers me up...
if I sing it (not that I can sing..really)...or, if I hear it somewhere..
I used to "sing" it in the mornings when I would go into
my kids rooms to wake them up.

I really love the songs from the old musicals... like
"Happy Talk" from...

Another couple of songs are
"Getting to Know You"  and "Whistle a Happy Tune" from...


and... how about
"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" or "A Spoonful of Sugar"?
from....Mary Poppins...
These songs are soo fun...can bring a smile to a childs face...
just like that!

I've picked all older musicals...and there are many more
songs from musicals that I really love too.  But, time, space
and my fear of totally boring you...keeps my list to just a few.

IT'S YOUR TURN... to sing!

What are YOUR some of your favorite songs that CHEER you up...?
Wonderful songs that put a smile on your face and
brighten you mood?
(the first picture of the first song/musical is Oklahoma)

Share your favorites...it will be fun for all of us!

I think mine is, "I love you baby, and if it's quite alright I need you baby..." I sang it to my babies when they were little, and now they are 9 and 6, and they will come up to me and have me sing it with them!!!!

You forgot to mention--I think it was Gordan McCray who sang "Oklahoma"/played Curly! I love all the old musicals. They were the music I would put on as I was growing up to clean house by!! Hard to be grumpy about cleaning when you are listening to a musical. In addition to the ones you mentioned, I love West Side Story. New one? I love Mama Mia!!

I love the old musicals!
"Oklahoma" is one of my favorites as is "Fiddler on the Roof". They are enjoyable like a visit from an old friend:)

I am smiling as I picture you going into your kids rooms singing in the morning. :)

My kids use to be annoyed by me waking them up to "Rise and Shine" in the perkiest voice I could muster up.

Another musical with fun songs is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
