Krabbers is one of the many standouts in the "Bring the song challenge", especially with his latest effort. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao3tQeqeJio) But he also does amazing ska-and reggae versions of songs on his Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/krabbers) as well.

Krabbers, thank you for the music. To quote LisaXY424, Yer a freakin genius!:)

Just listened to The Message. I am blown away. Congratulations, Krabbers, on a beautiful song well done.

I've saved the lyrics and chords, and I hope I can do it half as well as you do....

krabbers has always written great songs but this one is at a different level. It's a song only a man with a crushed heart could write.

Krabbers issuch an awesome songwriter! This Message is fantastic, tru magic. "I hope your worries are as far away as me." That lyric was a killer.


Another favorite is "Stuff Aint Good" :

Like I said, he is magic. There are very few people that have what he has. I definitely have more Krabbers on my fav list than anything else.

I'm really taken with This Message....

I printed out the chords and lyrics, and I really want to add this one to my meager song list. Is there a way to save the song to my iTunes? If I had it on my iPod, I could listen to it over and over and really learn the melody and the lyrics. The chords I'm not worried about....

Just tried it again.... Am I really such an idiot? :mad: Why can't I figure this crap out?

I figured out how to make it browse YouTube. I found the Krabbers videos. I found the particular song I wanted....The Message. I selected it, after which it shows up in the lower screen.

That's where everything stops. Nothing more happens. What the hell am I doing wrong/not doing right?

04-23-2009, 09:51 AM

Well, I guess it's true. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. As much as I love UU, and as much as I love YT.....I freakin' HATE computers! :mad:

I tried it the way you've suggested....twice, actually. Both times it sent a file to my iTunes library. Both times the song won't play.

I'm not ungrateful. I really do appreciate everyone's help. But computers and I were apparently not meant to work together....

dominic has taken his video down , due to an email i sent him, i didnt mean to offend , i just pointed out a couple of things,
there was a couple of lines missing , and one the video's was in a different key, also i didnt feel comfortable being in a tribute style video to myself, if in the past i have done collabs i always let the other people see it before it goes public.

it was a realy good idea, and i would like to thank dominicfor spending the time doing it . im a bit shell shocked by all of this to be honest

Krabbers, I hope you don't mind if I encourage dominic to re-do his tribute video and re-post it. I can tell that the attention is more than you expected, and that it may even make you a bit uncomfortable. But your song has genuinely touched people. Music has the power to move people's hearts, and you've tapped into that.

I'd love to see the tribute back up, but with your approval this time....

yes.. i am going to hold off a bit and let anyone else who wants to cover the song do so.. with the permission of the big K.. and then i will contact each person who has done a cover and make the video again! i am going to do a line myself becuase i feel a connection with the video also!

it is at the end of the school year and this week my kids are takin gthe AP US History test! so i am going to give it like 7-10 days.. so if anyones wants in.. they should do it.. and then i am going to DO MY BEST JOB to do a video that matches up well.. and show us all doing this song..

the idea for the video came with the line from the song "the world to sing along" it after seeing 7.. SEVEN!! covers of this song.. along with god knows how many others are just doing it at home and not making a video.. i was like WOW!! the world is singing along!! and its not some cover song.. it HIS SONG about HIS LIFE but all these people can relate!! love it

This morning I was listening to NPR (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103715874) on YLIMONDO a Finnish radio station and they were talking about "Playing for Change" and how ordinary people from all round the world and from different cultures collaborated on a musical project. Zulus doing chanting and Hopi Indians drumming.

In each sequence you see someone wearing headphones and listening into what has been played before and then improvising on top of that.

There were two outstanding tracks

Stand by me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us-TVg40ExM) and One love (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xjPODksI08) There is even a Ukulele player from Brazil.

For me at least it was a very emotional experience to see how music has the power to unite people. Take a look at the youtube videos for inspiration

so i had the idea why dont we all get together, do a line each over the music to my ws64's version , video yourself singing no uke as ws64 has done all the instruments , upload it to mediafire or box , send me the link and i will mix it all up

I suggest that everyone sings the complete song (if you can't sing a certain part just leave it blank), and Krabbers or I will pick what we think suits best for each part of the song.
And yes, baron, acapella video (you probably need to use headphones to hear the music and not record it again)

This Message


I wish I could write a song;
good enough, for the world to sing along.
And if I could write that song;
in a language, that the world would understand.

And if they--sing it enough, the message might get through.
The message that was only meant for you.
Where--ever you are, no matter, how far.
This message was only meant for you.

I hope you're...smiling.
I hope your worries are as far away as me.
I hope you're...happy.
I hope your troubles are as far away as they could ever be.

I wish I could write a book;
good enough for the world to want to read.
If I did, would you take a look?
would the words show another side to me?

And as you--turn a page, a chapter has to end,
before another chapter can begin.
And if you--read it enough, the message might get through.
This message that was only meant for you.

I hope you're...smiling.
I hope your worries are as far away as me.
I hope you're...happy.
I hope your troubles are as far away as they could ever be.

Where can I get the lyrics?

I think official lyrics/chords would help consistency on this project. But I must confess to being busy and lazy. :D

(Opps! you posted just before me!)

BTW, Krabbers, it is a beautiful song, this could be the pebble in the sea of a wonderful thing. :bowdown:

I'm going to resist my normal urge to complicate it.

I wish I could write a song;
good enough, for the world to sing along.
And if I could write that song;
in a language, that the world would understand.

And if they--sing it enough, the message might get through.

I hope you're...smiling.
I hope your worries are as far away as me.
I hope you're...happy.
I hope your troubles are as far away as they could ever be.

I wish I could write a book;
good enough for the world to want to read.
If I did, would you take a look?
would the words show another side to me?

There you go, Ahnko. Isn't it beautiful?

Amen, very beautiful. Thank you very much, I hope I can do it some justice.
