One of my precious, all time fave bits of contemporary music is the piece by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole singing a medley of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World. I think it comes from the movie ‘Finding Forrester’ but I haven’t seen it yet.
Anyway, tonight I was sitting here at my 'puter, and heard the song come onto the telly…I ran in expecting it to be a documentary or a music clip, but I was disappointed.
It was a fucking Dulux paint commercial.
And now it has ‘coloured’ my whole appreciation of the song. They’ve gone and tinted it now.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrr Dulux. You bastards. That was MY song, not yours.
