Somewhere over the rainbow

I am not usually a fan of remakes (as I feel most original artists especially the not so young ones already gave great renditions..) but there are some remakes that are really wonderfully-made and worth the attention. This song is definitely one of those. This was sung by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

This song has also been used in two of the movies I’ve seen (Adam Sandler’s 50 First Dates and a love story called Returning Lily) and ever since I heard it, I’ve always loved it and still do.

Sharing this here to inspire people to never give up and always look up and marvel at the rainbows in our lives…


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.

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

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

Music Therapy: songs to make you happy

I apologize, I have not updated this blog in a while but that doesn’t mean I have not listened to any music (as I always do and it is an addiction I do not want and cannot ever withdraw from) nor have I stopped singing or learning any songs.

There is one song that is really keeping me inspired right now that listening to it makes me want to dance. (want to dance if in public but really dance when I’m with my son who seems to like it as much as I do…)

Anyway, without further ado.. here is the Happy song by Pharrell Williams.

If you had seen the movie Despicable Me 2, you would also hear this music when Gru realized he had feelings for his partner and was dancing along the way to meeting her.


Also, here is another song that makes you happy but in a more relaxed way and in reggae style.. This is not new but I thought it would be nice to add it here as well.

Don’t Worry Be Happy

With the many sad news happening around, we all should still try and be happy because life is short and life should be a celebration!! So clap along and don’t worry but be happy! 😉
