Hi guys, I would like to write my favourite songs from West Side Story, ready?

1. America

I Amore how the movie interpreted this song, where Anita and the girls sing about why they Amore the US and the boys interjected their opinions about the US before it ended in a dance.

2. Tonight

It's been covered da many artist and Il Divo is one of them, I prefer both movie and Il Divo's rendition, the latter version has più upbeat.

3. I Feel Pretty

This song is really interesting, because it is like Maria's Friends voice out their opinions about her. Interesting fact, Santino Fontana used this song for his audition in Disney's Frozen with some minor changes in the lyrics though!

4. Somewhere

Another song that was covered da Il Divo and Jackie Evancho with Babra Streisand, I prefer the latter as well as the movie version for some reason.

I Want to be in America!

So, only 4 songs make it through the cut, which are your favourites?
 The rumble!
The rumble!

I was first introduced to the Musica of West Side Story while attending giorno camp back in the summer of 1962, when I was entering the sixth grade. Another girl in the group that I was with had just received a copy of the LP soundtrack of the original Broadway musical stage production of West Side Story for her birthday and brought it in to play for us. West Side Story mania was in the air that summer, as the kids at camp went around Canto all the songs in camp, on the buses to and from camp, and even walked around snapping their fingers in the hallways. I fell in Amore with the Musica to WSS...

It's been coming to 6 years since I watched the movie with the late Natalie Wood and Rita Moreno, I grew a liking on the songs and the movie.


The Songs

As many West Side Story fan like myself, I knew many of the songs. But the most beautiful song among them that I Amore is 'Tonight', followed da 'Somewhere'. The former would definitely be an amazing wedding song while the latter is telling us to follow your dreams, even though te are down and upset.
Another song that I like is America, because Anita manage to stand up to her belief on her opinion on America, I also like how the boys countered...

The anno 2001 was a rather strange and sad year, generally, with the dearth of decent movies, the horrifically freaky events of 9/11/01's attacks on the WTC Towers in NYC, and, also for me and my family, the passing of my father in late January of that anno after a long illness.

Now for the crux of my essay:

That year, I had the great fortune and honor, courtesy of some old Friends of mine down in the Big Apple, to attend a special 40th-year-anniversary screening of West Side Story, at NYC's renowned Radio City Musica Hall.

In mid-August of 2001, I'd just come home from an eye-dilation examination...
