If you could create a sequel to one favorite,(stand alone) movie,which would it be? How would it build on the original?
I would pick “The Sound Of Music”, it was a musical which is always my favorite. The seven children were wonderful and Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer were sensational. It ended when they successfully escaped from the enemies.
The sequel can be, how they coped in the new place, the children growing up in a friendly environment, their education.
A movie where the children would be the main characters. I think it would be very interesting.
I am sorry this prompt does not give me any confidence.A Music Critic? This is just a joke I think.I did not study music.Yes I love music.Taking the role of a critic is not an easy subject.
I can say I love Celine Dionne’s voice,she sings her songs so beautifully.I love her song in the Titanic.
Madonna’s song ,”don’t cry for me Argentina is beautiful.It feels as though she really means every word in that song.To me she is very talented .She has what it takes to make one believe.
Julie Andrew’s song; The hills are alive with the sound of music was remarkable.
Yesterday while going to the mall I heard someone singing a song .I asked my daughter who she was,it was Pink.Now she has talent,the way she can change her voice according to the lyrics is truly amazing.
I only picked the ones I like. The ones who have no talent and still are doing well,is amazing.I wonder why?
You can tell I have failed as a music critic.But it was fun writing about some of the talented ones.
There are hundreds of Indian singers who are blessed with remarkable voice and are also gifted lyricists. I am not sure if I name them people will recognize them. Just for fun I’ll name one.His name is Mohammed Rafi. He is not alive but he still is very popular. One song I have listened several times in the past few days begins thus: Dil jo na keh saka wohi Raa-ze dil kehne ki raat ayee,from the Bollywood movie ‘Bheegi Raat’.

This is all I can say about my knowledge of Music.
