Raindrops on roses. Whiskers on kittens. Brown paper packages tied up with strings. Carrie Underwood starring in The Sound Of Music.
Can anyone guess which of these is not one of our favorite things?
The Sound Of Music is one of the most beloved movie musicals of all time. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you could probably sing along to “The hiiiills are aliiiive with the soooound of muuuusic” (best performed with some Julie Andrews-style twirling, of course).
