After getting home from work and having some delicious (Firehouse) sandwiches I had a music moment. Stephen was playing a video game and so I got on the computer to watch the ‘Glee’ finale. I haven’t kept up with the show, except on hulu every now and again, but the music and talent on the show surprises me more each time. One song in particular really grabbed me today.
This is what I’m talking about friends:
I don’t know if you have heard of Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, but he does an AMAZING rendition of ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow. I’m not much for emotions, but this song really tugs at my heart when I hear it. Something about the combination of a soothing voice and a, get this, ukulele. It’s surprisingly wonderful. It gives the song an entirely new feel, and ‘Glee’ reminded me of that today. I immediately got on Grooveshark so I could snag up the song before I forgot. If you haven’t heard of grooveshark you need to start, it’s like iTunes, but the songs are free! While you can’t put the songs on your iPod, you can listen from any computer by signing into your account. No, Grooveshark isn’t paying me to write this, haha, it really is just that impressive! An endless & free version of iTunes, it doesn’t get much better.
So right now I am sitting on the couch with both the ‘Glee’ & ‘Ukelele’ version of ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ playing on repeat. I’m surprised Stephen hasn’t handed me a pair of headphones yet. Then again, that would mean he’d have to pause his game… ya, I should be good for a while.
