“Maria, these walls were not meant to shut out problems. You have to face them. You have to live the life you were born to live.”
– Mother Abbess

Maria (Julie Andrews) sings her way up to the hills and made movie history as one of the iconic movie scenes ever. The titular theme also helps set the mood to tell the story of Maria, a novice who serves as governess to seven Von Trapp children who eventually falls in love with their father, the Naval Officer widower. A feel-good family movie all the way.

sung by: Julie Andrews

The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls overstones on its way
To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray

I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I’ve heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I’ll sing once more
