Perhaps, It’s Just Me

Perhaps, it’s just me, but there are times when I am in such a sentimental mood.  Today is one of those times, and you can either enjoy this post or not, it will all depend on you.

I was browsing YouTube with an idea for a post and simply got lost again (not that I don’t expect it, just thought I would … well, nevermind).  Anyway, as I was listening and watching, I finally decided to give you the task option to watch the clips below after my explanation.  They are well worth the time, but still, if you are not at all sentimental…

I do love the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.  As I looked through YouTube, I realized what an evolution that song has had and what a history it has of helping people.  So, below are four examples of the song.

Number one is the original that everyone knows from “The Wizard of Oz”.

The second one is by a group known as “Celtic Woman” (OMG they are good and beautiful).

Then comes IZ singing the, now, famous new version.  His death bothered me as I didn’t really hear him until after he was gone.  I might’ve gone to Hawaii just to hear his voice live.

The final one is about 9 minutes.  There is a shorter version, but this one explained well what poor Connie was up against that day.

I think you will like them all.  Please let me know whether this was okay or if I should scrap these type of ideas.  I post for me, but you might as well enjoy them too.

    it’s weird, i love that song, but i can’t stand the Wizard of Oz….i think it’s triggering but i don’t know why..

      I don’t understand. How could the story of a child who is to be taken from her wonderful family by a mean old lady and the girl runs away and is chased by a horribly mean, controlling witch with all kinds of powers and the girl is threatened by nearly everyone who all seem to be against her – bother you?


      • buckwheatsrisk  On September 18, 2012 at 11:50 pm

        i never thought of it that way before…i really didn’t.
        so maybe you can explain why “Alice in Wonderland” is triggering too..


        • kindredspirit23  On September 18, 2012 at 11:56 pm

          OMG! Alice ends up someplace where there are so many rules, but she never knows how to follow them and please everyone. Besides that, she is out to fight a queen who makes her own rules and cuts off the heads of anyone who doesn’t follow the rules.
          Ah, just a thought!

          well reading that makes total sense! have you thought of becoming a psychologist?? 😉 thank you. i did listen to two of the video’s i have heard the little girl before she is incredible!


        • kindredspirit23  On September 19, 2012 at 12:01 am

          I studied psychology in college and used a lot of it in school. But, no, didn’t major and not interested in it full-time like daughter is.

          interesting that you have some training in it. if you’re daughter ever wants to use my story in her work she is welcome to. 🙂


        • kindredspirit23  On September 19, 2012 at 12:09 am

          I will tell her that. She would contact you first, I am sure.
