West Side Story Maria about Tony to Anita. Natalie Wood was Maria. Music by Leonard Bernstein.

when I saw the "i love him" I was like I KNOW THIS ONE! it's Eponine, "that's all I need to know" from Les Mes... but then the rest of the lyric didn't match... oh well, I was close for a few seconds.

I googled it and it is one I have seen, but apparently that part of that song isn't one I know well. For whim points, my brother Mike played a lead in this musical in HS. won't say his name since it might give it away, but he was the person referred to as "HIM" "HIS" and "he" in this particular lyric. I remember being grossed out when he "stage kissed" the girl. EWWWWW!

I think the name of the song is I have a Love.

Harmony said...

Love songs always sound so co-dependent. Saw this at good ole CHS of course, back in the day. Missy Jones was Maria I believe.

Jeri said...

there you go - could have said Tony since mom corry was typing at the same time...

Carol said...

Man I am forgetful today - I just saw this a few months ago on stage here in Denver. It was an okay production - but I prefer the older one without SO much blatant sexual innuendo! Hearing the music on stage was fantastic, though.

Mom C said...

DeLynn was Tony in CHS's production. Did a great job.
Did you see where they are investigating Natalie Wood's death, a cold wet case. Robert Wagner isn't a suspect though.
Saw a documentary that said that Wood and the guy that played Tony really had issues and struggled to play the love scenes. Much mutual dislike. Shades of Romeo and Juliet and back to the Fantastiks. Natalie wasn't the original choice for the movie and she didn't do the vocals, maybe Marnie Nixon.?

Harmony said...

Jeri, we're on the same wavelength again! I thought it was from Les Mis at first too, but double-checked the insert in my CD and also realized it wasn't Eponine after all.

Carol said...

Actually, the singing is a blend of Marni's soprano and Wood's alto.

I think I should get a whim point, because on the advice of Jeri, I logged on here to see the madness. And consequently spent the last hour plus reading all these posts and all your crazy comments. Thanks for all the laughs! You guys are a bit crazy!! Not sure where all the whim tie-ins come from, but it definitely makes for humerous reading.

I must get in on this one next year. Looks like way too much fun. I could have guessed the 7 brides one for sure as I have 3 boys who love to watch that movie, and we have all those songs memorized. DARN!!! Looking forward to jumping on the boat next year! Thanks Charlotte for making my morning fun. :)

Mom: 2 points for musical, one point for the other info about characters.

Jeri: 1 point for having a relative play this lead role.

Carol: 2 points for the name of the song.

Charlotte said...

Harmony: 1 point for having seen this musical.

Carol: 1 point for the same, 1 point for knowing the ins and outs of who did the actual singing.

Mom: 1 point for the same, I hadn't heard about the Natalie Wood investigation. 1 more point for all those insights.

Charlotte said...

Laura! Welcome! I'll give you five big ones, just because I'm so glad to have you, and because really, who's gonna say anything at this point, right?

musicmom said...

Awesome. I made it on your board. Since that is the case I will point out a few points that Jeri missed that she could have used. :) our brother Mark did in fact play one of the ball players in Damn Yankees. Can't remember which one though. And that same brother also played his trumpet as part if the orchestra in the Scera production of Secret Garden.

I sang "getting to know you" as a solo in the 6th grade Broadway production. And the Marching band my Junior year in HS used Fidder on the roof as our music. I got a horn solo in the song, "if I were a rich man".

Yep begging for points. Only kidding. Thanks for the fun. I will make sure I am on the wagon next year.

Harmony said...

I knew DeLynn too! I don't expect points for it, but I don't want any taken away because I should've known it and didn't! Seems like Dani Wheeler (who went on to bigger, soapier things), Vance Smith, Jennifer Johnson, and Brian Dunaway also had major parts in the CHS production.

Charlotte said...

Laura--3 more points for all that trivia on posts gone by.

:)

deutschlehrer said...

I think I am getting my posts mixed up--I will try again,

The thing I remember most for some reason from this play was Jennifer Johnson singing in a bathtub wearing nothing but a towel. I don't know why that sticks in my memory

deutschlehrer said...

Also, Damn Yankees tie-in: DeLynn was drafted into the major leagues out of high school. I think he played for a year or two in the minors.

Charlotte said...

Jeff--I already gave you a point for the Jennifer Johnson, over on the post where you accidentally posted it. I'll give you another for remembering that DeLynn tidbit though, and tying it to another musical.
