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
Way up high,
There’s a land that I 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.

Someday 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.
