A song and video that brought me much needed tears of joy:
somewhere over the rainbow what a wonderfull world
sung by Israel (IZ) Kamakawiwo'ole. I have hummed this tune hundreds of times, never knowing it was the intro to his version of somewhere over the rainbow what a wonderful world. I think many of you will be suprised when you hear this hauntingly familiar melody. It has been in numerous television shows, movies, and commercials over the years.
Here's the longer version (with what a wonderful world included)
Iz died in 1997 at the age of 38, from complications due to his excessive weight. He was the most popular singer in Hawaii.
Perfect timing DemoKat -- just what the doctor ordered! Thank you.
