Over the Rainbow

Over the Rainbow by Judy Garland

Best 100 Songs of All Time

       Judy Garland owns the song Over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz.  The song is a classic whether associated with the 1939 movie production or completely disassociated from it.  It is one of the most wistful songs ever written.  It's a song of hope when all hell is breaking loose around you in whatever form it takes.  Judy Garland knows what the song means more than any other singer who has sung it since.  You don't have to watch her sing it, you can hear it in her distinctive, beautiful voice.  Moonriver, the theme song from the movie Breakfast at Tiffanys has that same "someday, things will be better" theme.  Unfortunately, Moonriver didn't have Judy Garland to lend that special wistful quality.  Not to say that Andy Williams didn't do it justice, he did. It just isn't the same.
