About 10 years ago was the first time I heard IZ's Somewhere Over the Rainbow and fell in love with the song, but could never remember what the name was because I was only 10 years old. Another 5 years passed since I had heard the song last and it came on while I was watching the end of the movie 50 First Dates. Once I realized what song that was I told myself was going to learn ukulele so I could play Over the Rainbow and I did. Completely out of the blue one day I asked my dad if he would buy me ukulele (assuming that he was probably going to say no since I had done this before with the guitar and that didn't pan out for me), but to my surprise he said yes and that very night we went to a music store and picked out a ukulele and a pretty nice one at that. So that night when I went home I stayed up all night watching youtube video after youtube video trying to figure out how to play Over there Rainbow until sometime between 3am-4am when I finally figured out. Probably one of the best feelings in the world I decided it would be a good idea to wake my dad up and show him the song. Needless to say I love my dad very much and might not be playing ukulele today if it weren't for him.
