    Well, in the end, I went back through my collection of setlists

    And what better title with which to join this Season's party than Be-Cause You're Young?

    Performed by Faith Hill at A Concert for Hurricane Relief in 2005.



    Here's an outtake to show what I was dealing with by trying to record outside. It wasn't easy, but I prefer to do gospel songs outside if at all possible.

    Well, what a terrific start for Season 270. Lots of benefits and performers represented, with Farm Aid getting the most air time so far.

    Our Playlist should contain everything posted thus far. Please do check along the way to ensure I get every vid on it.

    Thank you so very much for a fine day of fine music. Off to bed for me now. Linda

    Ronnie James Dio, Hear 'n Aid, 1985. Because I've just been waiting for a season in which I could cover Charley Pride and Ronnie James Dio in the same day.



    This is from one of my favorite metal albums, and this song is one of my top favorite songs. I wish I could do it justice.

    P.S. Don't worry, I won't have time to crank out 4 songs a day for the rest of the week. I had a lot of free time today, so I took advantage of it.

The special raised money for the relief efforts from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It was broadcast in over 100 different countries. All proceeds went to the American Red Cross or The Salvation Army.

    Hi Linda ... and Happy Easter! Sort of stuck in last week with this one as I haven't quite been able to get out of "Emmylou Harris" mode. Actually, Andrew M. "Libranian" suggested I should do this one; or, at least, I THINK he did! It does tie in with this week's theme of benefit concerts, though, as E.H. has been involved in many of these, perhaps the most recent being the "Lampadusa: Concerts for Refugees", which toured in selected US cities last October. My apologies for the "country" accent, channelled via Southern England, and for the fact that I am rapidly losing my voice (haven't quite decided whether I have a cold or hay fever.)
    Walnut Flea Soprano, Eleuke Peanut, Rob Collins Soprano, Motu, Ukubidon, Gretsch Camp Ukulele, Tenor "Style Manouche", Hora mahogany Baritone, Roger Terry baritone, Sylvain Enjoubaut concert, Outdoor Ukulele (tenor), Ohana Vita, Ohana KA-6 (6-string tenor), DoudsandJo electro-acoustic tenor.

    Default Don't Fence Me In - Red Hot & Blue

    I'm still on a Western kick too. DFMI is often credited simply to Cole Porter, but in fact Porter (for once) worked up a set of lyrics supplied to him in 1934 by film producer Lou Brock, who wanted them for a soundtrack to a movie he was producing: 'Adios, Argentina.' Brock in his turn had obtained the lyrics from one Rob Fletcher, a Montana poet and (MT) Department of Highways engineer.
    In the end, the movie was shelved, and the song did not re-surface until 1944's 'Hollywood Canteen', where it was performed by Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers (Bing Crosby also recorded a version, with the Andrews Sisters, that same year).
    Although the published music gave sole credit to Porter, (Fletcher had signed away the rights to his lyrics in 1934 for $250, and Porter had in any case developed them considerably, as well as providing the two added verses), Porter did later sign over to Fletcher a portion of the song's royalties in recognition of his contribution (read more about the story here).


    Performed by David Byrne for the album Red, Hot And Blue, the first release by the Red Hot Organisation, a charitable foundation dedicated to fighting AIDS through pop culture. The album was released in 1990 and both ABC-TV (US) and C4 (UK) ran TV specials featuring the album to raise money for the foundation's work on World AIDS Day 1900.



    If I'd had a proper mixing deck I'd have taken the sound on the uke down a bit, but I spent a long time researching the chords to this one. If the pUKEs ever heard me playing anything as jazzy as this, I'd be thrown out on my ear!
