I continue building my ukulele playlists in Google Play Music and YouTube, but I'd really love some input from the Hivemind here. I'm interested in both modern cover players and traditional Hawaiian or Polynesian songs, though I prefer acoustic. Famous or not, whatever I can listen to in the office as I'm dreaming about being on a beach somewhere or blasting in the car as I fly along sunroof open and windows down.

Great lists! Thanks so much. When it's past the Ides of March and still below freezing outside, I need some ukulele to warm the spirit (at least until 5pm, when I can use actual spirits).

I'll toss out a few names from YouTube that I think do nice work with ukulele and singing. They're mostly just folks plucking away on a uke and singing in their bedroom, but pretty good in my opinion.

A guy that I like that does both modern covers and traditional Hawaiian is Andrew Molina.
