Why, you ask? Well, because I'm trying out for... something... involving theater and music... and singing is part of the audition. I picked 'Moon River' as my more quiet, contemplative song. You have to pick two for this particular audition, and they have to contrast. The other song I picked is 'They Call The Wind Mariah', which has a lot more oomph to it.
I've been looking at different performances to see how they interpreted the song, watching their facial expressions, movements, inflections, etc. There's a certain flavor that each one puts into their performance. Now that I've seen a few, I should be able to make my own informed interpretation.
This is the original Audrey Hepburn performance. It's a gem. Audrey's a gem. I love this song... and she sings it beautifully.
I'm all about being disciplined and not getting distracted and stuff... but I'd have stopped writing too if I were that guy. And I probably would have ignored that buzzer thing at the end and went down to talk with her and maybe sing with her for a bit, if she was cool with that. Not every day you find a girl who can sing AND plays the guitar AND looks just exactly like Audrey Hepburn.
Oh... and that part at the end where she asks him 'Whatcha doin?' and he says 'Writing,' and her face lights up?
I like this movie already.
I need to watch the whole thing someday. :) Now that I'm at a stopping place with the college/career stuff I was stressin' over... maybe I shall make time.
