Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Blixa Bargeld Lyrics


Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

Johnny Trash

When he was younger as in this still, he reminded me of one of those Germanic expressionist film actors, the type that walk around the dark lane ways and poorly lit streets, mumbling to himself morosely, disengaged and disaffected from people.

The still is from the film "Berlin Now." I must see it...

Felix Bunke

He is reminiscent of Conrad Veidt in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

Peter Seroka

Johnny Trash sounds like the typical protagonist of a dostoevsky novel :D

Class

People always sing this song like it's so happy, but it's a song of longing to be somewhere else: "birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I". Blixa really captured the song in a way that hasn't been done in a long long time. Well done.

Дивлюсь я на небо та й думку гадаю
Чому я не сокіл чому не літаю...

He finally made this song poignant and not cringy. He has a velvet voice, reminds me somewhat of Leonard, but with a gentler touch and timbre. I have just posted this on my recently departed friends wall, hope her family think it's ok, I did :( :) To Cerwyss xxx To Grumpy Lou R x

Nevada-Jane Song

I dunno, I find this version embodies a hope for something better in a bleak hell

Subterror Crust

The most creepy thing I ever heard in my life. Darkness. Amazing version.
