Over the Rainbow

I'm in a melancoly mood today and hunting favorite songs on youtube....My favorite all time song is Over the Rainbow...The ultimate version

This is my original and the one I will always love the most....The Wizard of Oz is still my favorite movie (I've never read the books and need to remedy that)

Then in the 80's I saw Sam Harris perform it on Star Search and that became my favorite for awhile, a quirkier version..

Then in the 90's while I cried through the death of Mark on ER, I was introduced to Iz's version, which is just a pure and beautiful version.....

And then now it is the Glee version

I know there are other versions out there....it's a popular song to sing....I also enjoy Kristen Chenoworth's version...just her pure voice...but these 4 versions are the ones that I enjoy the most...
