Day seven ::: Over The Rainbow

Written in 1939 by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, for the film The Wizard of Oz, this became Judy’s signature song.

"Over The Rainbow has become part of my life. It’s so symbolic of everybody’s dreams and wishes that I’m sure that’s why some people get tears in their eyes when they hear it. I’ve sung it thousands of times and it’s still the song that’s closest to my heart." - Judy Garland
