Five Star Songs #1

Trying to get things moving here once again, so here is a new feature:

Five Star Songs

Simply, now and then I will feature songs I really love.

To kick things off, here is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World"
by Israel "IZ" Ka'ano'i Kamakawiwo'ole, from 1993.

Just beautiful.


  1. That is gorgeous. I appreciate the image of a big guy with a little guitar.

    1. So glad you're doing this. I love Polynesian voices and never fancied the ukelele until Jake Shimabukuru but yes, this is just lovely. It's actually cheaper for me to fly to the States via Hawaii....hmmmm....hatching a plan.

    2. Oh and you made me happy on a sad night MWAH

    3. Baino - Glad you like the idea! And glad I could help. Hope you are better today!
