I Love the Song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

    Given I'm a Gay Man "Of a Certain Age,"

    . . . I'm supposed to idolize Judy Garland in all her manifestations.  I'm afraid I don't. But the song I like a lot, and she did it (and much else) exceeding well.

    The Punk Version

    I really love the punk re-make of this song.  I found it and posted it in a blog, it takes a great classic song and gives it a fun new twist.

    My Favourite Version..

    I am sure this group is about the original Somewhere Over the Rainbow song, which is of course a lovely song.  But, I found a different kind of version by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole.  It is like a mix of over the rainbow and what a wonderful world.  Its just so...

    So Many Ways.

    "Over the rainbow" isn't my favourite song, but I love that there are so many versions. It sounds good when played by any genre and anybody with any level of musical abilities. I haven't got a favourite, but my mum has practically forced me to promise to play the Eva Cassidy...

    Judy's Old Song

     It reminds me of being young again.  Everytime I see parts of the Wizard of Oz I remember how well she sang it.  It's sad to live a long time, like I have.  Many of the enjoyable moments are so far in the past that most of the young people I'm around now have...

    Classically Beautiful

    I don't know what it is about the song...but I think it's gorgeous. Every version I've heard. Judy Garland sang it best though. But if anyone has ever heard of IZ...download his version. He incorporates lyrics from "What a wonderful world" in it. It's gorgeous...
