    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...

    Secret

    Maybe it sounds silly and sentimental.  Maybe I should keep it a secret and only hint at it.  Yes, maybe I shouldn't tell it, but then how big a secret is it?  It hardly is one.  Suffice it to say that it is the most common secret lovers share

    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...

    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.

    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...

    How Could I Not??

    Dorothy not love "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" - that's like chocolate without peanut butter (at least to me!) LOL! I also like the way Kathryn McPhee sang it on American Idol BUT no one has or ever will again sing it like Judy Garland (aka Frances Ethel Gumm).

    Very helpful for me when I feel upset and I want some motivation. And you observe that we all feel that some songs totally fit on our own situation exactly.
