Over the Rainbow Chime
Our Over the Rainbow Chime is tuned to the opening notes of the beautiful ballad of the same name.
Written in 1939 by composer Harold Arlen and lyricist Yip Harburg for the movie The Wizard of Oz, Over the Rainbow was sung by Judy Garland in her starring role as Dorothy Gale. Almost cut from the film, it went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song and is now a mainstay in American culture. It's the number one song in the American Film Institute's "100 Years...100 Songs" list for the 20th century and is the most recorded song in history. When you hang this chime in your home or garden you'll be reminded that "somewhere over the rainbow...dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."
