I haven't heard it yet but I know it's coming. For some reason each and every year about this time that sound of fingernails on a chalkboard is broadcast over the television airwaves. Although I refuse to watch the entire presentation, I will be subjected to the ear piercing opening song every so often by way of a TV commercial. What is this noise that's reminiscent of a cat's yowl when its tail gets caught by a lawn mower blade? It's Julie Andrews bellowing out 'The hills are alive with "The Sound of Music".
Just the thought of hearing this again makes me want to take a pair of knitting needles and jamb them into my ears. Arrrgh! Yes, blown out ear drums with blood dripping down my neck would be better than having to listen to that siren of the underworld again.
Is the rest of the movie good? I'll never know. Just the mere possibility that the opening song would be replayed somewhere else during the show is enough to keep me at bay. Have I mentioned how much I don't like that song?
I don't have anything against Julie's accomplishments as an actress. She's been in numerous movies that I've enjoyed over the years, but "The Sound of Music" otherwise known as "The Sound of Satan Calling His Demons Home" isn't one of them.
Perhaps they could do a remake of this so called classic and call it "The Sound of Silence". Now that would be worth not listening to!
