5 on Friday - Set 32

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

At my sister's wedding last weekend, she walked down the outdoor aisle to the strains of a string version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

The weather was a mix of everything on her wedding day - a bit of sun, a bit of drizzle, a bit more sun. Nothing to make them relocate the outdoor ceremony - but all the ingredients for a spectacular double rainbow later in the day.

I'm repeating this shot which I posted yesterday, just because it's so crazy incredible.

For more wedding fun, scroll down to Thursday Thirteen.

For today's 5 on Friday, I salute all things rainbow.

1 - Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Tomis String Quartet

2 - Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows - Lesley Gore

When you're near the
Rain cloud disappears, dear
And I feel so fine
Just to know that you are mine

My life is
Sunshine, lollipops and
That's how this re-
Frain goes
So come on join in

Sunshine, lollipops and
Everything that's
Wonderful is sure to come your way
When you're in love to stay

- Hamlisch / Liebling

3 - A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow - Mitch and Mickey

Mitch and Mickey are a fictional folk duo from the film A Mighty Wind by Christopher Guest. The song is performed by actors Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara.

In tales of ancient glory
Every knight and maiden fair
Shall be joined when the quest is over
And a kiss is the oath that they swear

- McKean / O'Toole

4 - She's a Rainbow - The Rolling Stones

Have you seen her dressed in blue
See the sky in front of you
And her face is like a sail
Speck of white so fair and pale
Have you seen the lady fairer?

- Jagger / Richards

5 - Silver Rainbow - Genesis

This song is off an album that my sister and I used to listen to constantly while driving along the seaside, when we were both in our late teens/early 20's.

But if you're sitting there beside her
And a bear comes in the room
And you keep on going cause you're unaware
Ooo, then you'll know that you are there

Beyond the silver rainbow
You won't know if you're coming or going

- Banks / Collins / Rutherford

If you put rainbows in your wedding, it is really nice of the invited participant to show up for the wedding pictures. Love your collection of songs this week.

You chose some great rainbow music today Julia. :)

Julia Smith said...

Nikita - Let's wish for rainbows for your wedding! I'm starting now... *wish wish wish*

Marina - Definitely like that Stones tune.

Jamie - LOL!!!

Akelamalu - I'm quite positive you would have liked the after-the-ceremony music my cousin Julianne put together. It played while everyone was visiting and eating and having pictures taken.

Linda said...

Oh what great songs to go along with such a great picture! I'm sure that double rainbow has to mean nothing but happiness ahead for your sister and her new husband - well, most of the time anyway! You have to have a little sadness to appreciate the happiness more!

Man you really have me rocking in my office chair this week. Mine are up on Mike's place now as well.
