    There's a certain Electric Prunes song I'm tempted to try but I would be very happy if someone more talented than me did it!

    I asked Jessica (my amazing partner/wife/hero) which Leornard Cohen best fit the "songs of the night" theme. It took her a couple seconds to start singing this one.

    I did this once before as a song that my oldest daughter used to like me to sing. She loved the part about "fall through the skies", and I did a happy take then. This is a one take special that is closer to the original, which not only mentions Night in the title, but turns pretty dark around the third verse.

    For Season of the Ukulele 262, we're asked to play "songs of the night". Here's "End of the Night" by the Doors. Brian plays tenor ukulele and sings, Anais plays synthesizer and sings, and Borfus plays the Ubass and sings.

    So powerful mate. The inflections in your voice, the spaces you made within the song. You did this as close to perfectly as anyone could have. It's an incredible song and you may as well have written it your damn self. Thank you Ralf.
    Rick(Greenie). Night Time.
    Big Star! Magic choice, my friend. Jesus, Rick you have one almighty rainbow storm of a voice. So smooth, so damn majestic. One of the finest covers I've heard in a long time. Evocative as all hell. Thank you brother.
    Jim. Alone At Midnight.
    Oh man. Jim. YES. Just, yes. Maybe I'm the only other seasonista who knows this song, maybe not. But in any event, I worshipped the Smithereens mate. I have all their rekkids on vinyl and cassette. You really nailed this brother. Love the way you backed off the tempo and found the beautiful soul of the song. You're one of my favourite writers and players. Thank you.
