Judy Garland - Over the Rainbow (Reprise)
This reprise of ‘Over the Rainbow’ ended up being cut from the final version of the film. It has an additional chorus that is sung by Dorothy while she’s locked in a room in the witch’s castle, helplessly awaiting death as the witch’s hourglass runs out. Dorothy weeps her way through it, unable to finish, concluding with a tear-filled, “I’m frightened, Auntie Em – I’m frightened!”
I didn’t even know this reprise existed before yesterdat. This song means so much to me already and I have such love for Judy Garland and the struggles she went through, that listening to her voice breaking with tears as she sings this, it’s too much.
