Serious Happy Music

fa-so-la-la


To be used for housecleaning, singing along with gusto using overblown British diction and more vibrato than good sense, putting yourself in a good mood, and making the most of a dramatic mood should you find yourself in one.
"In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happy-ever-aftering
Than here in Camelot!"

I grew up with this album--thanks for the memories!

I had the privilege of seeing Richard Burton in the 1980 revival of Camelot, at Lincoln Center. He owned the evening - others were acting and singing, he was doing something else entirely. Thanks for the memory! One brief, shining moment...

I haven't heard it maybe I should have been looking for it this week, as I have been painting and doing all sorts of cleaning in order to get mine and Gary's little apartment in tip-top shape.

i dearly love this music, but i cannot listen to this album (well, ours was the movie soundtrack)without thinking of the movie, and i cannot think of this movie without weeping...or wanting to. it affected me so deeply as a teenager; i think i internalized it in a big way. anyway, i wouldn't get much housecleaning done, but i do understand your fondness and affection for it.

Do any of you know the name of the old movie with Adam from 7 brides and it has the song "Stranger in Paradise"? It is some arabian name.
