"Climb Every Mountain"

 From the movie, "The Sound of Music" (1965), a beautiful, inspirational song, "Climb Every Mountain". This is sung by the Mother Superior to a young nun.  It's about reaching for your dreams and doing whatever it takes to achieve them. 

Since I first heard this song, in 1965, I've had the dream of living near mountains. For the last 20 years, I've been blessed to live on the Wasatch Mountain Range front.

When you give it all you've got, God will do the rest and your dreams WILL come true!

Its So Nice to Be With You

A sweet song from the '60's.... an example of "bubblegum" music. "Bubblegum pop (also known as bubblegum rock, bubblegum music, or simply bubblegum) is a genre of pop music with an upbeat sound contrived and marketed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers, produced in an assembly-line process, driven by producers, often using unknown singers. Bubblegum's classic period ran from 1967 to 1972." (wikipedia)
