Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Judy Garland (London Palladium)


we saw this performance on a tv programme tonight and were touched by the fragility of it so I watched it again on youtube after chris went to bed and cried like a baby!

  2. I've never seen this version of Judy Garland singing this before. It's beautiful...

    The version of this song sung by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, with the song 'What a wonderful world' sung as part of it has gotten me through some rough times this past year because of its message.

  4. We all need that remnant of the 'Magic World' (the one we nearly lost all of as we 'grew up') to retreat into when grey clouds gather. The message, of course, is that the 'silver lining' is our hope for our better future.

  6. Hi John, I will listen to this after I comment. Open up those 'flood gates' and let it come out. It is very difficult to lose a sibling especially when there was not too much you could do to prevent the outcome.

  10. The Wizard of Oz is on TV here tomorrow night...made in 1939. They always show it at this time of year. Judy Garland was one of my favourite stars.

  12. Thank you for sharing Judy, I hadn't heard her sing in such a long time!

    This song came to mind: "Lean on Me" sung by Bill Withers!

    PS Crying is a messy process (well, it is when I cry) but it is helpful.

  16. Yes John, we watched it too and it brought tears to my eyes - she was such a fragile creature wasn't she? Wasn't it interesting that she said she couldn't go on stage and they lined all the stage hands up and Jimmy Tarbuck (I think) went to her dressing room and told her that the audience were desperate to see her. He said she went on stage and gave a flawless performance.

    I also thought Larry Hagman forgetting the words and his mum coming on stage was hilarious.

  20. There's a lot of crying over movies, songs, written passages - ahead of you John.

  21. I've had those vale of tears moments, too, John.

    Some were those guerilla moments where something innocuous would remind me of my brother and i'd cry. Hard to explain to someone else.

  22. Thank you so much for sharing this. I didn't realize that Liza was a grown woman when she lost her Mother. The relationship between them, the love, very warm and heartfelt. It's never easy to lose someone you love. Memories are one of God's precious gifts!
