this song reminds me of my favourite place--maui and how i long to return there as often as possible. so much there to soothe and satisfy my soul. over 2.45 billion (!!) people have viewed this video. june 26th of this year will mark the 25th anniversary of iz's passing. the end of this video shows his ashes being poured into the waters of hawaii in a ceremony attended by family, friends and adoring fans. this song (the alternate title, over the rainbow") is from the movie, the wizard of oz, and in a 2001, was voted the most important song of the 20th century. aloha. UPDATE: i don't know, if it still is, but this song has traditionally been the 5th song played to ring in the new year at time square in nyc.
