The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

It is things like this that despite everything make me extremely happy to be alive in this world. Thank G-d for ukuleles and the wonderful people who play them.

Miri, I sent you an Email by replying to the Blogger Email notification of your comment. Not sure you got it though.

I've been playing the First Act Discovery guitar that my wife bought for my six year old son, and frankly enjoying it very much. I would buy a ukulele, but I think my wife would throw me and my instruments out of the house...

I don't think I got it.


That is a fantastic mental image. Thank you.

Also, and I just have to get this out there bc someone has to say it - we can all agree that Bob Dylan was a musical icon. But the man was very very bitter.

I can't stand 99 percent of dylan's performances, but I LOVE 99 percent of his songs as covered by others...

Having said that - here's one that's pretty good. Maggie's Farm

Exactly! Dylan's songs are brilliant, but the man sings like the entire song is just a set-up for him to prove how cleverly he knows how to rhyme. It drives me absolutely insane.

Thanks for the link; I have two versions of that song on my computer.

That's becase the man can't actually sing, so has to sort of act out his lyrics.

You're welcome.

Yes, I see that the reply goes to

" Miri"

I guess that's the bit bucket.

If you would email me, I can send you that reply. It's not something that I care to post, but it's not that important. Have a Happy 4th, even in Israel.

Here's another good song that sounds even better as a cover, though I can't seem to find it on the Internet. If you can get a hold of it, get the Cowboy Junkies cover of If You Gotta Go
