You know that great rendition of “Somewhere over the rainbow” that you hear in commercials now (and that was on ER once)? I heard it in full this weekend on a radio station, and decided I wanted it, but didn’t know who sang it, or where to buy it… so I jumped on over to Google and searched. I found out that it’s Israel Kamakawiwo’ole and it’s from his Alone in IZ World album.
The title of the track is “Over the Rainbow” [mp3 sample].
I ordered it from Amazon thanks to free shipping, though, I should have bought it from BuyHawaiianMusic.com, just because they were cool enough to offer a free MP3 sample of everysong on the album, which allowed me to ensure that I was buying what I meant to buy… also, I didn’t have to sign up with Amazon, because I’d done it before… there’s a lesson in that reason somewhere for a retailer trying to make it online.
Oh, I bought the album because the song’s catchy enough to stick in my head for three days straight, and should prove to be a great ‘pick me up’ in the office.
