Hi guys, I would like to write my favourite songs from West Side Story, ready?
I love how the movie interpreted this song, where Anita and the girls sing about why they love the US and the boys interjected their opinions about the US before it ended in a dance.
It's been covered by many artist and Il Divo is one of them, I prefer both movie and Il Divo's rendition, the latter version has more upbeat.
3. I Feel Pretty
This song is really interesting, because it is like Maria's friends voice out their opinions about her. Interesting fact, Santino Fontana used this song for his audition in Disney's Frozen with some minor changes in the lyrics though!
Another song that was covered by Il Divo and Jackie Evancho with Babra Streisand, I prefer the latter as well as the movie version for some reason.
I Want to be in America!
So, only 4 songs make it through the cut, which are your favourites?
