Israel Kamakawiwo'ole...........I feel like an idiot!!!!!!!?

I was randomly on youtube when I saw a picture for this video....I was like what the hell and clicked on it.

I had no idea this guy sung this song thats on a billion commercials.

Tell me what you think

Doesn't it make you either happy or cry?


Believe me after I heard this I did research, I may know too much about him.

    Yep, from memory I think that whole "Rainbow-Wonderful World" medley was done in one take!

    Amazing voice and talent.

    I absolutely LOVE this guy. It is unfortunate that he's no longer alive, but he left a wonderful collection of songs. Check out his CDs.

    Another interesting thing about the "IZ" is that he recorded many different versions of "Over the Rainbow" and until you hear the actual song on the CD, you won't know which you're getting. They are, however, ALL good!

    Buy a ukulele in his memory... they're lots of fun!

    He has a good voice, or should I say had a good voice. He died about 10 years ago of morbid obesity at the age of 38.

  • That is a great song, I love it!!

    Its sort of sad, like something you would play at a ummm...funeral.

    Source(s): If this song doesn't make you feel anything you're not human, and most likely a robot.
