Julie Andrew – Impossible

An evening pause: From the live television premiere of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella in 1957, their only musical written for television. Edith Adams plays the fairy godmother.

For the world is full of zanies and fools
Who don’t believe in sensible rules
And won’t believe what sensible people say
And because these daft and dewey-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes
Impossible things are happening every day!

I first posted this in 2011. Time to see it again.

Cinderella – Julie Andrews singing “Impossible”

An evening pause: , The song “Impossible,” sung by Julie Andrews and Edie Adams, from the live 1957 television production of Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

For the world is filled with zanies and fools
Who don’t believe in sensible rules
And won’t believe what sensible people say
And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes
Keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible things keep happening every day.
