Season 55 – Location, Location, Location.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwZ62pESpHk

OK for Season 55 your song must have a place name in the title and be mostly about that place or something that happened (or could happen) there.
The “map” of the universe is also fair game so you can go extra-terrestrial if you feel so inclined.
Original songs are fine and encouraged.
Ukulele is what this place is all about so that should be the main instrument and I do want to see the face/s of the performer/s somewhere during the video.
Mention the Season somewhere somehow.
Bonus videos? OK, but just ONE please.
That’s all. So if I haven’t mentioned it consider it OK.
If it's on a map I'm happy.
So I guess that could include oceans, lakes, parks, streets, freeways, even specific buildings or bridges as well.
Google shows ALL.
All would be OK.

I am aiming for a large number of participants this Season.
As far as I have discovered the record number of entries is 48 or there abouts.
I would LOVE to get 50 entries.
So please if you are reading this and haven’t ever participated - JOIN IN THE FUN and become a SEASONISTA. Encourage everyone you know to join in.

Official Entries Playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWWTvJrk8iLzEZoEgQ1aWS-HjLntG_01c)

Bonus Playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWWTvJrk8iLwXObM4AiJs2-HnZWZKvDLn)

PRIZES – Yes I have prizes for the three entries mentioned the most by participant’s votes. I have tree Australian themed T-Shirts. Most mentioned gets first pick – 2nd most mentioned gets second pick – 3rd most mentioned gets what’s left. Shirts are XL size only I’m afraid – I figured too big was better than too tight.

Judging will be done by those who enter
VOTING – by posting a reply to the Season 55 thread when the season ends.
You get to name your 4 (four) favourite performances from the season.
No I’m not taking PMs this time.
If you want to vote you have to let us all know which ones you liked best.
And if you don’t vote you can’t win.
You don’t have to give any explanation (but of course can do so) simply list the 4 that appealed most to you.

Now then - just so happens I've been practising a song that would fit this ...... If it hasn't already been done by my next set of days off, I'll give it a go. Might have to break the rules on posting my face though, so it'll be a bonus entry:D

I have a couple in mind. In one, the "place" is a river. Would a river be OK? (As long as it's a specific river, of course)

Doesn't matter if it's not. I have thought of some more songs, so will have an entry and some bonuses.

I'll see if I can come up with a compromise :D

But I'm practising, as it's a song I remember from my very early days - and if my memory isn't playing tricks on me, I'm pretty sure I had the honour of hearing the original artist playing it!

No pressure then!

Yeah. It sure is and there is a good chance that The Cloverdale Kid will get 50 official entries for his great theme of Birds. I know you have a beaut video in there strumsilly.
But for those who haven't participated please do - you still have time as it ends 12:00 Midnight Sunday Hawaii time.

But if you haven't voted for season 53 it is still being done
And well season 50 hasn't been resolved yet either.
But people who frequent forums can cope with that, right?
As far as I have seen there has more or less always been an overlap of a day (or more depending where on the planet you are) with the seasons.

Well, I immediately thought was doing 1985's "One Night in Bangkok (http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/m/murray_head/one_night_in_bangkok_crd.htm)" by Murray Head; I even started practicing it. Unfortunately, the song is BANNED in Thailand, and since I'm just about to move there, I don't want anything on my YouTube page that might get me in trouble with the locals... Just prudent.

I'm going to have to learn how to multitrack on a video. I have some decent recording equipment and a decent camera but I'm not sure how to coordinate them.
Thiis is my bonus. It's an original song that I posted about a place I visited, Fengdu. The photo slide show consists of photos I took there.

Gulf Coast Highway, US 90, runs from Texas to Florida.
Bluebonnets, blackbirds, springtime...

This works better as a duet.
First heard it with Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson, written by Nanci Griffith.

For those playing along at home, good old C F G Am.

Gulf coast highway, he worked the rails
He worked the rice fields with their cool, dark wells
He worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico
The only thing we've ever owned is this old house here by the road
And when he dies he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing
And he will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

She walked through springtime when I was home
Our days were sweet, our nights were warm
The seasons changed, the jobs would come, the flowers fade
And this house felt so alone, when the work took me away
And when she dies he says she'll catch some blackbird's wing
And she will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

Highway 90, the jobs are gone
We tend our garden and we set the sun
This is the only place on earth Blue Bonnets grow
And once a year they come and go at this old house here by the road
And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
And we will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
And we will fly away together, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

Wow. I reckon you did the multitracking thing pretty well with the little lead part played on the uke. I liked this a lot. Didn't realise the Chinese had hell all those years ago. I guess they have always tried to scare us into being good, I googled Fengdu - certainly an interesting place.

I can multitrack with my recording equipment. I just can't figure out how to do it on camera. Not sure how to sync the two together.

Song based on a true story of Clare Campbell who died alone and neglected.
Her body rotted in her bedroom before anyone was concerned enough to find
out what had happened to her.


As Robert Burns said
"But see him on the edge of life
with cares and sorrows torn,
then age and want that ill matched pair,
prove man was made to mourn."

OK - So I hope to record my "best" song of place (about one of the most amazing places I have ever been) tomorrow.

Here is a sneak preview (https://www.google.com/search?hl=ca&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1111&bih=527&q=skellig+michael&oq=Skelli&gs_l=img.1.1.0i19l10.2147.3571.0.8466.6.6.0.0.0.0. 137.704.0j6.6.0...0.0...1ac.1.5.img.DFz7DKdUMsA) of the place.

Meanwhile, I've managed to tear myself away from class preparation to listen to some entries for this week and here are some brief comments.

Dave Wave Gulf Coast Highway - great song, very understated. Thanks for adding the lyrics, I always find it easier to listen if I can read the lyrics too :)

Joko - Real sense of place in that song. Liked the laid back solo too.

GaryC - What a fun song. I love how you "people" Soda Town - Very Dylanesque in many ways.

JazzBanjorex -I felt like putting on a grass skirt, or a loud shirt, after listening to this jolly ditty. Great performance.
BTW How's your six string tuned? I mean which strings are paired or octaved?

WeeGinga Yin - Eric Bogle is the master of touching our social consciences. Didn't know this song.
Nice to hear a "clean" song from you - sound wise. Though, as you know, I also love your reverb heavy + delay masterpieces!

Filipinoukjer - Hooray! We get to hear you sing in Tagalog. I love the sound of it! Your voice is just going from strength to strength! Smashing!

MrEWorm - Very atmospheric song. Great looking reso-uke. Perfect vocals for that song... just the right amount of heartbreak in the voice.

Xomen - Now Wim, I wonder why I was half expecting you to do this song? ;) The original always reminds me of the Velvet Underground (I think they did that deliberately). Your version sounds more like an out-take from Lou Reed's "Transformer" - Nice one! PS Just seen your Bonus. That was the other one I half expected ;) Or the Joshua Tree ;)

Thank you.
It is not the way it came. It is tuned gCEA and the C and E are paired. Originally the C string was octaved. I love the sound and wish I had a 4 string of the same model.

Host's Bonus.
Cha and Pa - Botany Bay. (Just a few verses)
No convicts actually settled at Botany Bay. First Fleet arrived and found it unsuitable and explored further north and found the magnificent natural harbour which was named Port Jackson (Sydney Harbour). They sailed through the heads which Cook had completely missed and that is where the first settlement (basically a slow, insidious invasion) took place.
Cha only learnt song today - practiced quite a bit then did the video on first and only take so real pleased at the end.

This is my entry for Season 55 of the Ukulele Underground Contest (location), a cover version of "Scots of the Riverina" performed by John Schumann & The Vagabond Crew.
"Scots of the Riverina" is an Australian bush poem by Henry Lawson. It is set in the Riverina, New South Wales in the town of Gundagai.
Australian country singer Lee Kernaghan interpreted the poem musically on his album The Outback Club in 1992.
Hugh McDonald recorded it on his 1994 album "Lawson" and it was later recorded by John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew on the 2005 album Lawson and also on their next album Behind the Lines.

This is my entry for Season 55 of the Ukulele Underground Contest (location), a cover version of "Scots of the Riverina" performed by John Schumann & The Vagabond Crew.
"Scots of the Riverina" is an Australian bush poem by Henry Lawson. It is set in the Riverina, New South Wales in the town of Gundagai.
Australian country singer Lee Kernaghan interpreted the poem musically on his album The Outback Club in 1992.
Hugh McDonald recorded it on his 1994 album "Lawson" and it was later recorded by John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew on the 2005 album Lawson and also on their next album Behind the Lines.


The guy in the song was a stubborn old bloke who left it all too late,
Real good job on this David. I really liked your strum/pick playing.

Despite suffering the greyest day we've had in months, I've managed to record this. I was hoping to do it up on the hills outside one of the dry-stone-built, beehive-shaped rock shelters for shepherds our hills are dotted with - very similar in construction to the beehive huts mentioned in the song - but the heavens were pouring down upon the hills - so I had to settle for another "bedroom" recording.

Xommen - Now Wim, I wonder why I was half expecting you to do this song? ;) The original always reminds me of the Velvet Underground (I think they did that deliberately). Your version sounds more like an out-take from Lou Reed's "Transformer" - Nice one! PS Just seen your Bonus. That was the other one I half expected ;) Or the Joshua Tree ;)
Thanks, the Joshua Tree is a name of an album which does not have a title track, I could have done Red Hill Mining Town from that Album, but I already did that in a previous season.

I found I had already used the song that I first thought of in an earlier season, so it was on to plan B. In fact I have found quite a few folk songs with place in the name, sometimes real, sometimes imaginary or even metaphorical.

For now, here is a Burns song. One of his less well known ones that I like very much. The notes in the book I took it from state "The woods of Craigie-burn near Moffat were a favourite haunt of Burns and it was here that he was inspired to write this song by the amorous efforts between a local girl and his friend, Mr. Gillespie. I have a feeling that behind the apparently maudlin ending is Burns chuckling while he teases his friend about his attempts to get his girl.

The song is quite short, so I thought a little 'moothie' was called for.

No seriously, we're a lot more friendly than that. There is no signing up, you just upload your video to YouTube and post a link to it here and you've entered.

A bonus entry is one that isn't an "entry" in the contest but is related to it. Usually a bonus doesn't fit the rules for the "season" for one reason or another. (It may use multi-tracking when the season doesn't allow it, or it may be a video that was produced for something else instead of specifically for the current season, etc.)

If a Season's theme inspires you so much that you can't choose just one song to do, you can play multiple songs. You choose one to be your official entry for the week, to be judged for your chance to win fabulous prizes. The other songs you do are bonus entries, which win you the adulation of your peers but usually aren't eligible toward winning.

Yes, he's absolutely a real guy. Some of the stranger bits of the song are playing on his catchphrases. He hangs around Dundas Square and tells everyone who approaches him that his parents are dead and he wants some beef jerky. It's...strange.

Regarding the invisibility of the uke and my hands: I know that's a problem. I'm filming in a very cramped space and have a hard time shoving the camera far enough back that you can see my face AND my uke. Perhaps I'll eventually find a solution.

Been catching up on some entries over the last few days. May have missed a couple - forgive me, if so. I'd just call in to see the latest and then write a quick note in response.

Nongdam - What romantic mush! :) But well sung and played!

Cha & Pa - Cute. Love the matching bowlers

Ukebloke - Moving song, well performed.

Jazz B --- Soulful singing. I just had to listen to that one, didn't I? ;)

WGY - Wow! I wonder what your granddaughter makes of that one. It was strangely anachronistic to have a little 21st Century Miss singing of a 20th C. defensive line. She's a gem - a great voice that's gonna get greater and what confidence! I love the mirror reflecting you - nice touch... and the dizzy making end when she thought the camera was off.

Toolter -- Another classic ballad there Geoff! Liked the "harp" too :)

23 Skiddoo - That was great, guys! I'd love to see you guys live and sing along. That's the sound my Dad loved and I was brought up on. He'd have really enjoyed that.

Hochapeafarm - I didn't know this one. Which movie was it from? Well sung and played! Roller on sister!

UkeyDavey - Quite a bizarre song! Well performed. They don't write them like that any more :)

GT3T11 - A nice little ditty, well performed. I once had a girlfriend whose Dad was a travel writer for Blue Guides. Great job, if you can get it.

BBbannister - An old favourite admirably approached.

OK I commented on the song before which was a great cover of this beaut song!
On the out takes - they were beaut too and I had a good laugh.
On the few occasions I try and do a perfect take - I end up getting quite frustrated - which Dave showed despite his good humour a few times (my out takes would have a LOT more bleeps).
But for me it ceases to be fun - which is why I will usually be happy with a first take with a few blemishes.

On the other hand when you finally nail that perfect take it is a great source of satisfaction and joy.

Thanks for sharing your bloopers Dave.

We Tigers - I was just listening to Yo La Tengo covering Roadrunner and here you lot come with the big New England? And, and, and with a spiffing delivery that knocks me plumb over. Jolly nicely done!


Bbannister - I’m loving the lutenescacized sound of this, both of your vocals are very modern in a post-gregorian way, so nice to hear. I may prefer this to those American Laddies’ version, I think. Has a rolling ship chantey feel I’ve never considered. A revelation.


You have doubled the uke in the recording process as well as the vocal, yes?


GT3T11 ah, how lovely (and a wonderful, confidant performance!) this is a song that i’ve loved since my kiddohood and I love the way you sing it. I dig that you were a travel writer, too! There are more sides to you than to a set of roll playing dice!


UkeyDave! I don’t know about low on talent, not at all, sir. I LOVE waterloo sunset and your version is encouraging more than a bit of head bopping along. I like the reggaeesque feel to your strum here. I tend to like to do that with some songs these days. Most enjoyable, young fellah! And as for the Grand Opening, what can I say, almost as exciting as the OUTTAKES! Be sure to watch this straight through to the end folks. UD is a tour de force of nature!


My vote for video of the year so far, although I don’t know if there even is such a thing, In my limited mind...thus far, howsumever? it’s all about the Ukey Dave!

Thanks for the comments. The tenor Uke was one take, but I had both a wired pickup input and a microphone input into the mixer. So kind of doubled in one go.

Next was a uBass track.

Then I added about 4 vocal tracks, but all unison, trying to sing them exactly the same.

Then...

Wait for it...

I mimed the vid! LOL

Felt like 1990's top of the pops. No live singing here son!

here's our bonus song. It is not about quality but it's about having fun.
It's New England by Jonathan Richman. We visited New England twelve years ago when my sister got married in Maine (They live in the Netherlands though), so this one goes out to her. We've added some extra vocals, ubass and a few pics of our trip.
dadadadumdadumdadum... oooh New England!

What a treat to watch this video! It's a very fun song, and you had fun doing it. Nice pictures, too.
You must visit again—do you have another marriageable sister?

here's my official bonus entry...this is from the cartoon show, The Animaniacs, Yakko's song of nations...probably the hardest lyrics i've ever done! rave on seasonistas!

Many, many KUDOS to you, Dave, for learning and doing that song!
When my son was young, we watched The Animaniacs regularly. It had lots of jokes for grown-ups* among the zaniness. I loved this song and would dash to hear it when it came on. It's a tough one, and you did Yakko proud.


* "Pinky and the Brain" [two lab mice] cartoons always started this way:
"Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"
"The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world."

P.S. Did you get a hankerin' to throw on the ol' roller skates? If I still had mine, you can bet that I would have played and recorded this song while wearing them! Ha!

I actually considered recorder - and wooden flute. In fact, I sang it up a tone so I could overdub the flute. In the end, I went for harmonica as I could do it all in a single take.

When I say 'single take', I use the term advisedly. :old:

Mormond Hill is about 35 miles north of Aberdeen and the village of Strichen is about 1 mile to the south west of the hill.

So, you're going to laugh (I hope!) a lot at this one -- but, first, everyone throw on your roller skates, and ladies, go get your leg warmers on -- and then get ready for a blast from the past back to 1980 -- "to a place where nobody dared to go!" Pabrizzer, I am probably breaking the rules, here, 'cuz as you'll soon see -- this song is about a fictitious place! Here's my very first Seasons entry -- hope you get a kick out of it! Btw, this was one of my favorite songs when I was a kid -- and one of my favorite movies -- and yep, I was a TOTAL roller skating queen back in the day!!)


Xanadu is far from fictitious...It is a place where a million lights are dancing- a place where I am a shining star! Right now The Cloverdale Kid is putting on roller skates and a silver lame outfit, and smiling from ear to ear. This is about the best thing I have ever seen anyone post- What a first entry! Welcome to our own little Xanadu- hope you come back for more.
Thank you for completely making my week.

I gave up on getting a good moment alone to record—both kids and my wife have been sick all week, and I've barely had a moment to myself. Still, I'm the one who's not sick, so I can't complain. Anyway, I took a few minutes at bedtime to record. Not perfect, but I think it came out well. And I figured out a software solution to get it through both channels, and the EQ!

This is "The Upper Peninsula," from Sufjan Stevens's album, "Michigan." (The U.P. is that discontiguous part of Michigan that should probably just be part of Wisconsin instead.)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4GHxm9om4s

Am–Em–F-G7 is the pattern throughout.
I live in America
With a pair of Payless shoes
The upper penisula
And the television news
And I've seen my wife
At the K-Mart
In strange ideas
We live apart

I live in a trailer home
With a snow mobile, my car
The window is broken out
And the interstate is far
I drove all night
To find my child
In strange ideas
He's been revived

In strange ideas
In stranger times
I've no idea
What's right sometimes
I lost my mind
I lost my life
I lost my job
I lost my wife

My voice only goes this low early in the morning.

This is the Townes Van Zandt song "Snowin' On Raton", an appropriate entry for this snowy morning. Lucky for me, I took the day off from work to celebrate my birthday, which gave me time to capture this song before my voice fully woke up. The "Raton" in the title refers to the Raton Pass, a mountain pass on the Colorado/New Mexico border.


http://youtu.be/cEs-HmtVjw4

Not only does this song fit Season 55, the birds in the background hearken back to Season 54, and there is something about this song that would also make it fit Season 56... ;)

Just a big WELCOME to those who have joined the fun here at THE SEASONS either this week or last.
Last season had a record number of entries and I'm already over the moon with the QUALITY and QUANTITY this season.

03-08-2013, 12:39 PM
OK I have tried to keep the playlists up to date.
Please let me know if I've missed you (or anyone).
I have tried to comment both here and on YouTube - so again if I haven't it is just an oversight not intentional - so let me know and I'll attend to it.
What terrific entries this week. I thank you one and all.
Now on the bonus situation. I only requested one bonus so that I could attend to the entries properly - and that is more in terms of WATCHING rather than commenting. If I make a comment on a video I try to ensure that I have watched the ENTIRE performance. And that means time.
I am a bit of a serial bonuser myself so I understand the urge to share all those pent up songs.

That's a long way of saying it's OK to post a few more bonus tracks if you have that urge!
(Decaturcomp you have shown admirable restraint!)

Forgot to wish those on the sick (and injured) list a speedy recovery. It is a particularly nasty little bug this year.

I love this week’s theme. There are so many great songs to choose from, and so many wonderful videos done already this week. I decided to try and learn one of my favorites, even though WallyBoy did such a great job kicking of this week with this song. I tuned my ukulele to F,Bb,D,G to bring it down to a lower range, to go with the mood of the song….

Just a delightful performance. Beautifully sung and played.

Solid performance - really enjoyed this Alan. Glad you found the time to post.
I was worried that I had annoyed you with my bonus limit.

And - yes - as always the Seasonistas have done a great job!
I, like all hosts, really appreciate the time and effort put in to participating in the week's fun.

Here is my Song.
It is called Un Canadien Errant. "A Lost Canadian"
I didn't know about it, I think it was Sung in a movie called one week. Quite a few people have sung this song, Cohen, Pete Seegar to name a few.

There are several versions out there, the one I am singing is based on the version from Alexandre Belliard, from his album Legendes d'un peuple - Tome II

I sing it in French. So I apologize to the french speakers if I garble a couple of the words.

Here is Wiki link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Un_Canadien_errant)
And another link From the Canadian Encyclopedia. (http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.com/articles/emc/un-canadien-errant)

Not at all, Brother. I feel that for all the volunteer work that you hosts do, it's my honor to accedeto any conditions you set.
Also, I understand the reasoning behind the condition.
I've been a slacker and not hosted yet so I'm doubly humbled by what you all do for us.
Thanks.

The fact is that we had gigs to play last night and tonight and the third person in our trio wasn't available except for the last half of tonight's show. We had to rehearse and rearrange stuff to make it work as a duo.
Plus, the rest of life and all that mundane stuff.

What a week. My father died early Monday morning and as the week progressed, I have felt worse and worse. I feel pretty beat up at the moment. After reading a post and doing several searches, then finally a purchase of the sheet music, this song started on Wednesday with lots of crying. I could barely get through a line or two. It has become a great joy and comfort. It is with a heavy heart that I offer up this marvelous tune in loving memory of my father, Jesse E. Forton (May 13, 1923 - March 4, 2013). I'm glad his suffering has ended and relatively quickly, but boy am I missing him right now. I'm glad I got to tell him many times that I love him.

Thanks, Brian!

This is Lou and Peter Berryman's "Generic State Song", and was kind of hard to do, since it is a duet, and I can't do overdubs or multi-tracking. So I improvised - you'll see.

But the song has EVERY location in the United States in it... at least it does, by proxy...

I spent the day today at the hospital with my father - also born in 1928 - after he tripped and fell, tearing the ligaments in his right shoulder and hitting his head on the ground. Luckily, there is no head injury, but the shoulder is going to be a problem for an active 85-year old.

I know how beat up you feel - it has not been a great week overall here, either, and I've been miserable - but your song made me feel a lot better.

Best wishes to you and your family, and thank you for helping me out.

Here's a reworking of what was originally an Australian song (http://youtu.be/ZeadSspZDzM), to fit my California Location Scout existence.
Didn't have time to really do it right, and I sure wish I could get to my bonus ideas too.

So sorry to hear about your Dad's fall. Glad there's no head injury. (Hope I'm still active at 85!) May both of your recoveries be swift and complete. Thanks for your kind words and best wishes to me and my family. They are much appreciated. (Can't believe I screwed up his birth year. Dad was born in 1923. I knew he was coming up on his 90th. I'm usually pretty good with the math stuff. Doh!)



Ray, your father would be very, very proud of you for playing this song in tribute to him. You played it beautifully, and if you wavered on a word or two, you are in the right place to let your heart show. I was moved, as I'm sure many others were. I hope that you'll feel your father's love all your life.

—Ginny
I often took an ukulele and/or guitar when I went to visit Dad and Mom. The funeral is today and then folks will be coming to our house for the wake. My wife has been cooking for several days. She's channeling her grandmother Rose. Two marvelous women. I'm a very lucky man.


The song is a beautiful memorial, sincere condolences.

Thank you.


An absolutely beautiful performance, Ray...I was so very moved watching you play. Your heartstrings were definitely playing your uke strings, for sure, here...my sincerest and deepest condolences to you on the loss of your dear father.

Thank you very much.

OK The season is over and it is time to let us know your 4 favourite entries for the week.
You don't have to say why (but you are welcome to) just list your favourite 4.
Here are mine - which will count - but no more than yours.

Sin City – Flying Burrito Brothers – 23skidoooooo
Scarborough Fair Bob Bannister
The Upper Peninsula Dewittkower
Un Canadien Errant ukuloonie

Now I know there are no female members here but they are the ones that did it for me this season - especially the last two for the vocals - which I thought were just great.

No you don't have to vote but only those who vote have the chance for those wonderful no expense spared T-shirts.

For those new to the seasons - in my first post there is a PLAYLIST where you can see all the weeks videos.
Please list the SONG and the name you see in the playlist - no probs if you use their UU username as I hope I can sort it out but the song name will help.

I'll close the voting on this THURSDAY at midnight Hawaii time.

THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON! YOU ARE ALL WINNERS!

my faves for lots of different reasons but mostly for their SOUL. Only 9 views for J-Peg? If you haven't voted you might want to gander his way first.

No fair making us vote publicly. I wanted to be able to say to everyone - "No, really, I voted for you...." :-)

In no order, here are my top 4:

Filipinouker - Manila. How can I not vote for a song that not only has Tagalog lyrics but is translated in the upper left hand corner?
Barbalanka - Skellig Michael. An outstanding original song with great vocals and playing.
Boweewowee - East Bay Nights. I loved the "soul" that came through in this rendition.
Krabbers - Kansas City. One of my favorite songs and a version I have never heard before. Good harmonies too!
