I can’t get the voice out of my head. “It’s May! It’s May! The Lusty Month of May!…” tra la la… Julie Andrews running through make believe fields of flowers in the broadway musical… years ago. Gawd. Too long ago. I was a kid in high school when I borrowed that LP! from the Library’s music stacks and sat fixated listening on earphones in the music section… I couldn’t help myself from chiming in as the chorus swelled with joyous tra las…. (The Librarian had to come over and tell me to be quiet!) If you’ve ever unconsciously started singing aloud with your iPod whilst listening on earphones you know what I’m talking about. The music had lifted me to a higher plane… call it Broadway rapture….! Yes, I coulda been a STAR! I’m certain of it.
Want to listen to the music??? Click on the YouTube video just below and listen to the song! Julie has super diction! You have to agree! And just try not to shake your booty, head, tap your toe or two. Enjoy.

Alas, it is all a memory now… but the musical by Lerner and Lowe was a real smash at the time. The lyrics and music work so well together, don’t you think?… they are just mahvelous, and so much fun to sing loud and lusty so everyone can hear…. and Today, being the first of May… it seems appropriate to do more than hummmmmm along. 🙂
So tell the truth. What did your body do when you listened to this lusty song? Leave a comment and tell the truth.
