Featured Music From Seven Brides (To Be)

In steps June, after a glorious Memorial Day Weekend. Therefore I decided to select the song "June Bride", from the classic musical soundtrack to Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. I don't personally know anyone who is getting married this month, but it is the most popular time of year for people to enter into wedded bliss.

In general this film has some superb seasonal qualities. There is the memorable Fall picnic where the boys take part in a manly dance-off to win the hearts of their new found crushes. Then you have the emotional winter scenes, one of which includes a colossal avalanche. After being trapped on the mountain for months on end we eventually see the guys and gals enjoy a lovely thaw as they sing of "Spring, Spring, Spring". It's a film you want to revisit again and again and still enjoy every minute, and the soundtrack is just as enchanting!
