♪For years, there’s a debt that I’ve owed
to the girl from the Yellow Brick Road,
who could make my emotions explode;
so thanks to the God above,
for letting me fall in love
with Judy Garland ♪
“We wonder[ed] how Judy Garland, a human, can exist. It’s almost unfair to heap one living person with such love because we think it is impossible for any person to live up to it. But thank God for Judy Garland, who makes us feel like standing up and smiling at life and believing there is something special waiting over the rainbow—for all of us.”
Happy 91st birthday, Judy.
I cannot express in (many) words how much you mean to me — your talent, your films, your music, your beauty, your love, your passion, your empathy, and your strength, always inspiring me to reach for (somewhere, where ever it may be) over the rainbow. Thank you, Judy. Thank you for the indescribable happiness your life has brought to mine.
Have a wonderful birthday.
