Who wrote "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"?


Penned in 1939 for the motion picture "The Wizard of Oz," "Over the Rainbow" was written by Yip Harburg and Harold Arlen. The song was sung by Judy Garland who played the starring role of Dorothy Gale.

"Over the Rainbow" eventually became the trademark song for Garland. She sang it near the beginning of the film after her aunt would not listen to her when arguing about her dog and an unfortunate event that happened with a spinster lady in town. The song was written with the intention of making movie-goers take a peek into what Dorothy was feeling and dreaming.
