Repassez-moi l'standard... "Over the Rainbow" music by Harold Arlen & lyrics by E.Yip Harburg (1939)

"Une chanson dont on a beaucoup parlé cette année, lors de la sortie du biopic "Judy", autour des derniers mois de la vie de Judy Garland. Chanson indéfectiblement liée à la vie de cette Grande Artiste, qui la créa à 17 ans, dans le film de Victor Fleming "Le Magicien d'Oz", en 1939." Laurent Valero

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've 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,
High above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me...
