Listened to this Israel Kamakawiwo’ole classic with my boys on the way to hockey early this morn. They loved it, so I thought you might, too.
This has to be the saddest children’s song ever sung, more than ‘Puff the Magic Dragon,’ even.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.
Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me.
