Maria...

Maria
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 ...

Maria
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 ...



Maria.
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."
