    A hit in 1969 in Germany. Erik Silvester's "Zucker im Kaffee". Some failures with the tricky percussion and using my new cheapo and looooooong fretted baritone, did say "KISS": keep it simple, stupid!
    So a single track of a song I know and like since nearly 50 years:

    Here's an original written for this Season. This is called "Orange Pineapple Juice". My memory isn't what it used to be, but I'm pretty sure that in my early 20s, I did order straight sloe gin at a bar at least once.

    I learned something while writing this song: I'd learned a few years ago that 5500 was an easy way to voice an Fmaj7. But I didn't realize until yesterday that if I move it up one fret to 6600, that's an F#m7.




    Lyrics:

    I was an angry youth
    Searching for elusive truth
    Drinking my screwdriver made with orange pineapple juice

    Glass tapping on my tooth
    Saying lots and lots of sooth
    Drinking my screwdriver made with orange pineapple juice

    Lean into me, climb aboard
    We’ll gather up wisdom as it’s poured

    At a bar with Ruth
    Laughing, sitting in a booth
    Drinking sloe gin straight ‘cause they don’t have orange pineapple juice

    Disheveled and uncouth
    Don’t talk to me about vermouth
    I want a screwdriver made with orange pineapple juice

    To make the mental leap
    And have a thought so deep
    Requires that I keep
    Some coolant in my brain

    Lean into me, climb aboard
    We’ll gather up wisdom as it’s poured

    I was an angry youth
    Searching for elusive truth
    Drinking my screwdriver made with orange pineapple juice
    Drinking my screwdriver made with orange pineapple juice

    Holy cow! That's some knowledge I can really use! Thanks!

    Ah, Season 308, I couldn’t remember when I made the video this evening. Anyway, here’s my entry. Haven’t done any music for a long long time. My fingers hurt I played the uke so much. That hasn’t happened in a long time. Feels good.

    So the season has been over for some hours now, and we got:

    - 38 covers
    - 21 original songs
    - 3 milkshakes!

    I will give you a day or two to catch up before I make the wrap - up.

    Feel free to watch and comment the others videos!

    So, I finally made the wrap-up!

    I have mixed the wrap-up and shortlists a bit, just to mix it up, so it is a wrap-up-playlist.

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...ToCTRH3ORghhd7

    I will make a wrap-up-text-post later on.

    Except for the first category, which I had decided to do before hosting, and which required some research, all nominations for prizes were made on totally unfair, subjective, biased reasons, that was there in the moment - so I might have chosen some other nominees or categories any other day. They were whatever just spoke to me at the time, be it for idea, effort, soundproduction or whatnot.
    So don't take it personally if I didn't pick your video, it was still awesome!

    Thanks for a great season. It was terrific hearing all of the originals. They were all so good.

    I love this Host Disclaimer. I might steal it when I host! Great Season!

    I just finished the Wrap-Up Playlist. It's brilliant! Bravo!
