Searching for Maria (interlude)
Written by Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II
(from the musical The Sound of Music)
0:25
Regrets collect like old friends / Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way / And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh / But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong / It's always darkest before the dawn

THESE VOCALS SHOOK ME.

These 25 seconds prove why CHRISTINA AGUILERA is untouchable. No one can touch that voice. NO ONE.

This kinda kills the momentum leading into 'Maria' tbh. If anything I would have started with this acapella then the instrumental then 'Maria.' and maybe have 'Searching'/'Liberation' be one track instead of split.

I wanted to cry at her voice, no lie. That last note took me to new heights. SLAY ME, QUEEN.

I love The Sound of Music so I was so excited to hear this little snippet of her singing. She did NOT disappoint.

I'm soooo disappointed because she executed it so well that she could and should have sung the whole thing!

Damn, this is so perfect too. I don't understand why she opted to separate this from Maria (maybe for legal reasons, too many samples in one song?) but nonetheless beautiful. That last "Maria" she sung felt like heaven.

She kinda sounded like her Mi reflejo self here. Loved to the tone of her voice.

I love that these particular Sound of Music lyrics perfectly relate to how critics tend to dismiss her year after year. "The problem with Christina is..." "Christina needs to..." "Christina really shouldn't..."

This is kind of fun but, like, was it even necessary?

I would rather she had covered the entire song and include it on the album. It is too short for my taste I guess...

Yes. It’s integral to Maria. A stunning intro into what is arguably the album’s most important track.

Yeah, it is part of Maria... And IMO it only works if you listen to it as a combo.
