ASAD#17 Sound of Austria

I chose todays song, due to recent occurrences. As an Austrian living in a foreign country  you are often faced with conversation like the this one:

“Where to you come from?”
“Austria”
“Ahh Sydney?”
“No, Austria, not Australia.” (I actually thought this part is often a bit exaggerated, but it happened to me often. Also quite logical, because its one of the worlds biggest countries, but lets continue) ”
“Oh, Vienna, Salzburg and I love Sound of Music.”
“Ahh… Sound of Music”

It is, at least for me, quite clear by now, that the movie is probably more famous in other countries than in Austria itself. I think also Falco was often confronted with this subject –on a short note, what a freaky music video. I myself, now know what it is all about, but I have never seen it entirely, but I got myself updated about the movie and the true history of the Trapp family. The movie itself is bit of weird and kitschy to me. What is quite interesting though is, that I met a lot of young people, that  love the movie and actually travel to Hallstatt, Salzburg to see the scenery of the movie. It is always interesting to me, how some places of a country are famous, because of certain instances.
But enough talk, here we go and at the same time let’s learn something about music. Isn’t that nice!

And the hills are alive with the sound of music, or not?
