Subtitle Blitz #01: The Sound of Music

 

Did you know that Liesl and her father were attracted to each other? All right, I mean Chamian Carr and Christopher Plummer, who was more than ten years her senior at the time? Actually, I don’t even know if that’s true. I got that from IMDb, but they’ve been known to be wrong (witness: No perfect 10 rating for Secret Admirer.) I haven’t seen this one in a while, but when I was a child, I knew the soundtrack backwards and forwards. Didn’t help me when it came to subtitling some of those lyrics:

ALL:
Layee-o-dl layee-o-dl-oo

-MARIA: Mm-hmm-hmm-hmm 
-CHILDREN: Mm-hmm-hmm-hmm

- Ho-dl-ay-ee 
- Ho-dl-ay-ee

- O-dl-ay-ee-ee 
- O-dl-ay-ee-ee

O-dl-ay-ee

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Laydee-o-dl-ay-o

Laydee-o-dl-ee
Laydee-o-dl-ay

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Laydee-o-dl-ay-o

Laydee-o-dl-ee o-lay

(sighs)

And as a bonus, here’s a photo of my mom playing Maria in her school production:
