It’s not every person who can combine “The Sound of Music” with the scatological. But “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut” composer Marc Shaiman has done just that. Explaining to the New Yorker magazine how he fashioned the score for the hilarious R-rated movie, Shaiman says the first 20 bars of the opening number — delivered by the character Stan — are meant to evoke the snowy Alpine scene that opens the classic 1965 Julie Andrews musical. Other songs in the movie (with lyrics by “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker) pay homage to “Oklahoma!” and “The Little Mermaid.” That latter one would be Satan’s number.
