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 beautiful, I am not sure why, but I always get a little teary when I listen to it.

It's a shame this song has become a *gay* anthem... they seem to have claimed the song for themselves

Well I enjoy that version (my favourite). But I have a soft spot for this one - which I think of every time I hear the song:<br />
