This is the sound track of "The King and I" (1956), a musical retelling of "Anna and the King of Siam" and the third Rodgers & Hammerstein Broadway hit. Naturally a movie sound track can not hold a candle to the play if you have seen it. However this is the version I grew up with. And this is the version I bought. Many of the Songs were written for this story and have no meaning outside of the context of the film. Yet many people can relate to where they were when they saw the film or have been in similar situations and the songs match their life. Everyone has a favorite my two are "Getting to Know You" and "Hello, Young Lovers"
