A Quick Tip by drifter51

Judy Garland's version is obviously the definitive one but for my money I'll take Harry Nilsson's version. You can hear it in the closing scene of "You've Got Mail".

More Somewhere Over The Rainbow (so... reviews

Somewhere Over The Rainbow
I wrote about the song As Time Goes By (soundtrack from the movie Casablanca) yesterday and Sean mentioned about Wizard of Oz. Somewhere over the rainbow is another classic from those time (ie. my parents' time or even before!). Thanks to my parents I heard the original sung by Judy Garland and thanks again to Youtube I found this song on the web.      "       Original artist is Judy Garland but the song was also sung by a wonderful artist …

My favorite version of this tune has to be the one recorded by Harry Nilsson. It was used at the end of "You've Got Mail" when Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan meet in the park. I am not ashamed to say that that scene with this song never fails to bring a tear to my eye!

About this song

Wiki

"Over the Rainbow" (often referred to as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow") is a classic ballad song with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg. It was written for the movie The Wizard of Oz, and was sung by Judy Garland in that movie. Over time it would become Garland's signature song.

In the film, part of the song is played by the MGM orchestra over the opening credits. About 20 minutes later, Garland, in the role of Dorothy, sings Over the Rainbow after unsuccessfully trying to get her aunt and uncle to listen to her regarding an unpleasant incident involving Dorothy's dog Toto and the nasty spinster Miss Gulch, whom Toto bit after she struck him with a rake. Dorothy's Aunt Em tells her to "find a place where you won't get yourself into any trouble", prompting the girl to walk off by herself and sing the song.
