Something Good

I just fell in love with the song. One of the best soundtrack in the movie, The Sound of Music. :)

Something Good

Maria: 
Perhaps I had a wicked childhood 
Perhaps I had a miserable youth 
But some where in my wicked, miserable past 
There must have been a moment of truth 

For here you are, standing there, loving me 
Whether or not you should 
So somewhere in my youth or childhood 
I must have done something good 

Nothing comes from nothing 
Nothing ever could 
So somewhere in my youth or childhood 
I must have done something good 

Captain: 
For here you are, standing there, loving me 
Whether or not you should 

Maria: 
So somewhere in my youth or childhood 
I must have done something good 

Maria and the Captain: 
Nothing comes from nothing 
Nothing ever could 

Maria: 
So somewhere in my youth 
Captain: 
Or childhood 
Maria: 
I must have done something … 
Maria and the Captain: 
Something good

Elaine Stritch
Something Good

This usually isn’t the first thing people think of when they think of Elaine Stritch, but one of my very favorite performances of hers will always be the finale to her brilliant one-woman show Elaine Stritch At Liberty, a heartfelt performance of the song “Something Good." The song, with music and lyrics by Richard Rodgers, was of course written for the 1965 film adaptation of The Sound of Music; where it’s boring and out of place there, here it is used with alarming and devastating poignancy. This is Elaine Stritch to me: a performer with a knack of selling any song, if it was the best of Sondheim or if she had to elevate the material, and making a deeply personal connection to it. Brava.
