In the grand Tradition of Ukulele Underground, and seeing as this is my six hundred and sixty sixth post, I have decided to host a little contest.

“The Devil Made Me do it” Ukulele Video Challenge.

Rules
1. Posted between now and ********** 2009
EXTENDED TIL JUNE 30th!
2. Pick and record a video of a song, any song even remotely linked to the Devil. For example “The Devil went down to Georgia”, “Devil in a blue dress” , or anything by Barney or The Wiggles.
3. The Ukulele has to be used in the song.
4. Say this is for JT’s The Devil made me do it contest on Ukulele Underground at the start of the Video
5. Post your video online and link to it here, in this thread.
6. The Winner will be decided by my wife and kids (any connection between my wife and kids and the devil is purely coincidental)and announced the first week of Summer

and

The Casetone2514 Corollary: 5 entries per person max!

The Winner will receive a Barnkickers “Up Before Noon” CD (autographed by Steve and maybe Amanda) and a “Certificate of Excellence” and some stickers from NightGig Studios.

Good Luck!

JT

I am addicted to this contest: It's great fun going through my repertoire and finding the Devil in all sorts of unusual places.

Here's a song I learned about 6 or 7 years ago but that I don't sing much because it doesn't leave many opportunities for breathing and I am rather fond of breathing frequently and regularly - call me old fashioned - but just for you, my newest entry to JTs contest is

INXS did record on a Warner label (Atlantic/WEA, technically), so I'm sure those hineyhats are on the hunt for it.

Hopefully your countermeasures will work. They seem to have worked for one of my A-ha covers--I didn't use the name of the song or artist anywhere, and it's still up (despite being a Warner's band).

THIS is my very first entry into a Ukulele Underground contest!

I feel the need to make a few explanatory notes.

I will be the first to admit I am not the most talented musician out there. On this forum, I am one probably one of the least. That being said, I consider myself more of a video maker and entertainer than a musician. The uke is a wonderful and cherished tool to complement the rest of what I do.

So I ****ed up several of the verses. The background rhythms are sort of white noise. BUT, I did buy devil horns just for this contest, so at $5.99 I would guess this video has more production costs than any of the others!

Woo Hoo!

2. Pick and record a video of a song, any song even remotely linked to the Devil. For example “The Devil went down to Georgia”, “Devil in a blue dress” , or anything by Barney or The Wiggles.


What about Hannah Montana or the Jonas Brothers? (Though I doubt my ability to memorize one of their songs for this...) Would a devil-based parody of one of their songs (written as if the singer was confessing to infernal roots, for example) work?

I should have been at work yesterday but I was recording these instead - don't tell the boss.

Here are my entries:

Mark Knopfler's, "Devil Baby" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWFAF7BvrfY), from the album, "The Ragpicker's Dream". It's probably a tad long and a bit of whistling is no substitute for Knopfler guitar.

And a quickly thrown-together, short version of The Cult's, "Lil' Devil" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4-l6ykWwTA) from 1987. I was just experimenting with it but the wife thought it was good so here it is.

Maybe they're both too obscure.

There is nothing quite like entering contests when they are over. You go to sleep, a little folding of the hands and the devil sneaks in and steals everything you've got, or at least stops you from getting your entry in on time.

Oh wow! I've been on vacation for the last week so I wasn't paying attention to anything on the site. Then I started getting email from YouTube when people commented on my video and congratulated me on winning. Anyway, thank you very much. I am really proud of the video since it is the first one I ever made. And while I thought it was good, I didn't think it was a winner. Congratulations to everyone that entered because all the entries were great.
