I just met a girl named Maria

Actually I don't know anybody named Maria, but I'm watching "West Side Story" and Tony (a cheeseball of the first rank) just sang "Maria" and, I mean, really ...

Say it loud and there's music playing
Say it soft and it's almost like praying

Now that, I'm here to tell you, is a lyric. To be able to paint like Sondheim ...

I'll never stop saying Maria

Did you know that they decided Natalie Wood couldn't sing well enough so they dubbed all her songs? This I find troubling.

Perhaps not as troubling as having your voice dubbed over your entire dialogue, like Andie MacDowell in "Greytoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes."
