Nearly died of a surfeit of saccharine during a visit to the Von Trapp mansion in Stowe, Vermont, since which the Sound of Music brings me out in hives. Porgy and Bess for me, any time.

I did the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg.  One of the highlights of my life ha ha!!

I narrowly avoided that dubious pleasure, Jane, by telling a vile untruth. Please don’t tell my wife or daughter, or my life will be hell. I’ll take that one to my grave.

I did teach my daughter that The Sound of Music was 'Something Good' and against type she still loves it to this day!!

Well done.  The best I could do was Fleabag, but I think I just got to it before their friends did.  Thankfully they never watched it with me.

No ;-)

(Nothing holds a candle to The Sound of Music anyway)

Actually meant to write 'chickflick" but the phrase wouldn't come to mind!..Mrs C reminded me when we "messengered".....

Huh?.."Sound Of Music" ?...isn't that "Les Miserables" in French?...... never heard of it otherwise...new release?...MT doesn't mention it so........

And very old quiz question for all the more senior members..maybe,,,,many solo instrument hits over the years...."John and Julie";;;who and what instrument..

And any favourite strictly instrumental releases..and why..... "Rebel Rouser" a start off from me...first musical 78 I bought...but not Duane Eddy..couldn't afford it so Woolies knock off..Embassy ?

Mrs C is in UK so a LOT of time on my hands!

Hmm....a Freudian slip if I ever saw one.......think he might be referring to one of our own on here!

When my daughter was around 10 years old, she, along with her classmates, was asked by her teacher to bring in her favourite music CD to play in class on the last day of term before the Christmas holidays. "SPICE" by the Spice Girls had been released a few months earlier, and pretty much all the girls in her class brought copies of that CD. Not my daughter, though. She brought in London Calling by The Clash. No doubt entirely my fault, as she lived with me from about the age of four until she left uni in 2008

Duck Soup is excellent (Hail Freedonia!), but Monkey Business was always my favourite.

Very cool.  I was the only person I knew to have a copy of London Calling in my first term at University.  Street Cred we called it then.
