    Season 270 of the Ukulele - Songs by artists who have done benefit concerts. Jimmy Buffett has done a few of them - the most recent I'm aware of was in 2013 Kokua For The Phillipines where it was a benefit for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

    The song begins with lyrics in Tahitian:

    Ia ora te natura
    E mea arofa teie ao nei

    Translated into English as:

    "Nature lives (life to nature)
    Have pity for the Earth (Love the Earth)"

    One of my favorite songs of his.
    I own more ukes than I need. But not as many as I want.

    I've done both of these Paul Kelly songs before and I don't think there is any improvement really just wanted to share them this season.
    I know our host recently did a beaut version of this one...


    Thanks so much for that nod and posting the link, Pa. You led me to that song with your first performance and sold me again on your stunning performance posted here for this Season. This song belongs to you.

    Lou Reed sings of a mythical animal. He performed this song at Farm
    Aid in 1990
    . I can only imagine that the farmers would have been totally confused. I know I am.

    Thanks, Gina, and can't wait to see what you bring! No one else has chosen from Net Aid yet.

    Rick played some Neil Young due to the Farm Aid concerts.
    Neil ain't afraid to take a side ...



    Although the notion that the First Nations people were given anything but a hard time is a bit of a stretch....oh but plenty has and is still being taken.
