    There you go, Jim. Told you there'd be a third, and you'd say "did LW write that ?" She surely did :-)

    This is "A Blind Step Away", a minimalist Richard Thompson song about a game of blind man's bluff, from the first French Frith Kaiser Thompson album.


    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    You know, I started out thinking this theme was limiting, or at least I found it that way for me. But you guys are killing it with your choices.

    I wanted to try and do this one standing up, so that I could include an overly long neck tie, but I couldn’t get the uke comfortable so you’ll have to just imagine. Hard to believe that this was released in 1988 (from They Might Be Giants, Lincoln).



    Obviously no pressure Matt, but if you find something you want to play please share! There’s always room for one more.

    My wife was watching Sleepless In Seattle and this song was in the beginning of the movie. I heard the work Kiss in it and knew my song number two for this season.

    this week has been a classic example, for me, of how my seasons brain operates, and how the seasons work for me! when i read the theme i had a song pop straight into my head, i tried to resist it but couldn't! lol! so that was my first song. then i went a-looking online for other songs that fit the theme, and found an absolute gem, a new-to-me song by a singer i love, so that was a delight to do! that was my two songs done, but the theme keeps working on your brain throughout the week regardless, and i had an idea for a homemade song develop, and did it just for kicks, as i'd already done my two for the week. i think the brain work/research side of the seasons is great, and like rex said, sometimes as well you just happen to hear a song and think OH gosh that fits the theme! it's great! i also get my parents and a pal of mine who is really into music, she's an expert on punk rock but also knows a whole bunch of other stuff too, in on the act, they come up with great song ideas!

    I should definitely pick more brains than my own feeble one. Good advice!

    Here's a cover of a Charlie Pride hit. I added an plugged-in uke and a piano.

    Greetings,

    I just heard the most beautiful cover of Last Kiss by Pearl Jam on the radio, so tomorrow I will try to lay it down. I think many artists covered this one before but the vocals on the Pearl Jam version are fab. Worth a listen.
