The ukulele

Tracie mentioned the ukulele– such an underrated instrument. Perfect for summer sunsets. Here is the version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Hawaiian sensation Israel Kamakawiwo Ole.

This song. Good friends. An amaretto sour. That is a perfect night.

  1. This is the exact ukulele song I was thinking of when Tracie mentioned “ukulele”…

    I remember sitting on the beach in South Africa (on a trip that was supposed to include a few other people *ahem ahem*) and this song randomly came on my ipod… and made me cry.

    And while I slightly agree with Al’s position that sometimes there is only one true version, I adore covers of songs because for me, it either enhances my love of the original OR makes me look at it in a different way.
