Somewhere. Over the Rainbow.

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I’ve heard of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true
Some day I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why, can’t I?


First heard this one at the closing of the last scene of 50 First Dates. Highly recommended movie, by the way. Really a good attempt at a make-you-think-while-still-keeping-it-light kinda movie. So, anyway, I was deep into thinking about the movie at the end of it and this song, sung by someone with a really beautiful voice started playing and it completely blew my mind. Wonder why they didn’t include it on the soundtrack, though.

Upon doing some research, I found (to my amazement) that this song is actually originally from The Wizard of Oz, where it was rendered by Judy Garland. I still don’t know who’s written it, unfortunately, so I can’t credit it.

    And I’m pretty sure that I’m going to – someday.
