Mary Poppins [Remastered Original Soundtrack/Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Prior to their 14-song score for Mary Poppins, songwriting brothers Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman were best-known for the Top Ten hits "Tall Paul" by Annette Funicello and "You're Sixteen" by Johnny Burnette. Mary Poppins changed all that. It won the brothers Academy Awards for best original musical score and best song -- for "Chim Chim Cher-Ee" -- and the soundtrack album won them a Grammy Award for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or TV Show, as well as winning Best Recording for Children. The album also topped the Billboard LP chart for 14 weeks and reportedly sold 2.3 million copies in its first year of release. Of course, all this success could ...

Prior to their 14-song score for Mary Poppins, songwriting brothers Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman were best-known for the Top Ten hits "Tall Paul" by Annette Funicello and "You're Sixteen" by Johnny Burnette. Mary Poppins changed all that. It won the brothers Academy Awards for best original musical score and best song -- for "Chim Chim Cher-Ee" -- and the soundtrack album won them a Grammy Award for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or TV Show, as well as winning Best Recording for Children. The album also topped the Billboard LP chart for 14 weeks and reportedly sold 2.3 million copies in its first year of release. Of course, all this success could not be the sole result of the brothers' writing ability, as also expressed in memorable songs like "A Spoonful of Sugar," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," and "Feed the Birds Tuppence a Bag." A great deal of it could be credited to the many unnamed talents at the Disney studio, and not a little to Julie Andrews, who embodied the character of Mary Poppins so perfectly that she never really escaped it. But Mary Poppins had a lot of songs for a movie musical, no less than 13 separate numbers, and they were all very good, from Mrs. Banks' Glynis Johns declaration of "Sister Suffragette" to Mr. Banks' Dave Tomlinson transfiguration, "Let's Go Fly a Kite." The brothers had clearly paid attention to Andrews' stage triumph My Fair Lady, and not just to learn how to craft songs for her. They wrote what might have been a new song for that show's Henry Higgins character in Mr. Banks' statement of purpose as a self-satisfied British male in "The Life I Lead." But their primary influence was the popular music of the period in which the story was set, Edwardian England, specifically the British music hall style of the pre-World War I era. That gave them the buoyancy and glee of many of the numbers, but the wonderful melodies of songs like "Chim Chim Cher-Ee" and "Feed the Birds" were their own. And they benefited from an excellent cast that included Johns, Tomlinson, and Ed Wynn in minor parts, and Dick Van Dyke sporting an awful, but nevertheless entertaining Cockney accent in a major one. Best of all, of course, was Andrews, simultaneously warm and proper, bringing out the best in the material.

    Life Saving

    I saw this movie when I was passing through a hard time in life. We were so poor that we didn't have a t.v I saw it at the neighbors. This movie made me see that nothing is impossible, that life is life and we are the ones that make things work. This movie made me understand that no matter how hard time your going through you can make it a lovely place for myself and my surrounds. Thank you Julie for your talent. I don't think they couldn't have chose a better person for this movie bye know. I don't even what to stop writing!

    Wonderful family classic!

    The songs in "Mary Poppins" are classic and timeless. One of the first memories I have as a child is watching "Mary Poppins" every day. The songs were the best parts of the film. I know the words to all of the songs on this album. Walt Disney was a master.

    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!

    I love this movie!! Mary Poppins was based on the books by P.L. Travers, Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, and Mary Poppins in the Park. Julie Andrews brought Mary Poppins to life better than I thought possible and Dick Van Dyke was great as Bert. I would recommend this movie to anyone of any age!
