View Full Version : Alternative songs featuring the uke?

01-13-2010, 05:23 AM
Hi all. I don't play ukulele myself, but a friend has just started learning and I'd like I'd like to make her a mix CD of alternative / indie music songs which include ukulele. So far I've only got:

Elephant Gun - Beirut
Hold On - Darren Hanlon
I believe I can fly (cover) - Me First and The Gimme Gimmes

Apologies if this has been asked a million times before, but I did a quick search and couldn't really find anything. Can anyone recommend any other alternative / indie / rock songs that feature ukulele?

I know it's probably poor form to use my first post to ask for help, so many thanks in advance!

The first song here called "If it ain't fixed... don't break it" fits the description although the uke is prominent it's not featured.
