about

"My Favorite Things" is a popular show tune, originally from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical 'The Sound of Music'. The song was first introduced by Mary Martin and Patricia Neway in the original Broadway production and sung by Julie Andrews in 'The Garry Moore Show's' 1961 Christmas special and the 1965 film.

In the musical, the lyrics to the song are a reference to things Maria loves, such as "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens". These are the things she selects to fill her mind with when times are bad.

The original Broadway musical places this song in the Mother Abbess's office, just before she sends Maria to serve Captain von Trapp's family as governess to his seven children. However, Ernest Lehman, the screenwriter for the film adaptation, repositioned this song so that Maria would sing it with the children during the thunderstorm scene in her bedroom, replacing "The Lonely Goatherd", which had originally been sung at this point. Many stage productions also make this change, shifting "The Lonely Goatherd" to another scene.
