Climb Every Mountain Inspiring Song, Debate Me, Do Not Fear! A – 366

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN 😉

Enjoying a Barbra Streisand concert on cable, delightful voice and musical interpretation. She sang a song from the “Sound Of Music”, beautifully, magnificent. But I have a problem with a part of the lyrics of this song.

I will tell you first a little bit of my musical experience so you know why I dare to criticize (in a constructive way, of course) the lyrics of this song.

 

Climb Every Mountain Inspiring Song, Debate Me, Do Not Fear! A - 366 1

 

I happen to be a musician. I play the guitar and sing very well, actually. I sang professionally in my youth to pay for my medical career. I studied music, singing lessons and musical composicion: music and lyrics, in Bellas Artes in Mexico City. So I think I have a very good idea of what I am talking about, but I am always open for a healthy debate and to change my mind if somebody is willing to explain to me why I am wrong in my assertion about this song:

“Climb Every Mountain” — Written by Rodgers And Hammerstein.

This show tune was written for the 1959 musical “The Sound of Music” and sung by the Mother Abbess.

The problem I have with, is highlighted and I will tell you why below the lyrics:

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Till you find your dream

It should say “reach” your dream, not find your dream. You already need to have found your dream, this is “know” your dream, then climb every mountain, until you reach it. And I don’t see any problem with the rhyme. Changing the word find to reach would not affect the tune nor the octaves, but it would make a lot more sense, and it would have more psychological and inspirational impact, in my opinion.

Funny Quote of the Day: Singing in the Shower

Funny Quote of the Day: Singing in the Shower 2

Not everything in life has to be so rigid and serious. Laughing at ridiculously funny-foolish sayings or situations in our lives  can make our days better and improve our health.

Whether starting off your day with a shower, or ending your day with a shower, it will most likely boost your mood. Singing releases endorphins and oxytocin in the brain, hormones that bring pleasure and relaxation. Endorphins in particular reduce our perception of pain, lead to feelings of euphoria, and enhance the immune response. This contributes to less stress, and a more relaxing shower.
