There's a bright golden haze on the meadow, There's a bright golden haze on the meadow. The corn is as high as a elephant's eye, And it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. Oh, what a beautiful mornin', Oh, what a beautiful day! I got a beautiful feelin' Everything's goin' my way.

It is a rarity these days to see a good (none the less) musical on tv or in the theaters,with the exception of "Chicago". Even less to find "classic" worthy films. I grew up on watching old classic musicals or just classic movies. Black and white movies mostly. Oklahoma! has to be one of the most wounderful movies ever made. Most of my friends have never seen this movie, I finally made them watch it and now I am glad to say we have a weekly ritual to watch classics.
