'Liza Doolittle Day


I just figured out that last Monday (May 20th) was 'Liza Doolittle Day! (For reference, watch this.) How on earth did I let this go past with no mention? That's terrible. That I didn't realize I mean, not that it's a day to celebrate 'Liza Doolittle!!

So this is simply me noting the day that celebrates a character from one of my favorite musicals. My first experience with this story was middle school. Our high school would put on a musical every spring and I don't think I'll ever forget watching this one. I fell in love with the story and the outfits and the singing and the whole nine yards! Imagine my excitement when I realized that there was a movie! :D

I haven't watched it in a while, but I do love it. As much as I love it though, I think my favorite version will always by the one from school. Because it was my introduction to a wonderful musical, plus the girl who played Eliza had a beautiful voice and was a wonderful actress. She will always be "my" Eliza. I do not remember her name now, but I do remember her face. And I absolutely remember how I felt the day I first watched it! I think I begged my mother to let me go watch it two or three more times just because I loved it so much. I'm sure I was singing the songs for days afterwards and probably annoying my family. :D

And for your further enjoyment, this is one of the songs I remember singing a lot:



Anyway, happy belated 'Liza Doolittle Day! :)

  2. Oh, the Music is especially beautiful in "My Fair Lady" - I love it, too!

    "I could have danced all night" is one of the best!

    Only thing is... At the end, I always want more!

    1. You and me both, Net! I'm always like, "That's it?! It ends right there? Couldn't you have given us more? Just a little bit more? Pretty please?" :D

  3. My first intro to these songs was when my mom would play Barbies with me -- we'd dress them all up to go to a dance, and when they got home, one or more of them would sing "I Could Have Danced All Night." That's actually the only thing I can remember us ever doing with Barbies, really. I didn't see the movie until I was probably ten or so, and then discovered that my mom didn't make that song up herself.

    1. That's a fun memory, Hamlette! I just remember singing that particular song over and over and over and over. Whether out loud or just in my head, I loved it and never seemed to get tired of it. Although I'm sure others did who had to listen to me. ;P

      I only ever had one Barbie and loved her to pieces. I'd beg mom for accessories (like a house or a car, you know, the big stuff), but only ending up with a few clothes. Why it is so fun to dress and undress Barbie dolls I don't know, but I loved doing it back then! :)
