Food Glorious Food

Season 68

Songs about or referring to FOOD.

Metaphorical food is fine.

Food for thought is fine.

No need to ask questions. If you think the song fits the requested requirements it does.
Whatever you serve up will be gratefully accepted.

Snacks or feasts are OK. So multi track and add effects as much as you like.

I guess drink will be OK too but I would prefer it to be about what we eat.

Usual rules apply –

Mention the season somewhere please.

Uke front and centre and we do like to see the performer/s.

New videos done for the season only.

Entries in by midnight Sunday, June 9, Hawaii time.

And try not to post your video until Sunday June 2 Hawaii time.

Judging.

It will be me. I am going to pick the one I like best.

It has never been my intention to ‘out source’ (ouch) my judging in the previous seasons I have hosted. I just think that is the best way to get a fair, consensus based result. It was certainly not easier collating all the entrant’s votes as they came in.

So total subjectivity and ME.

Bonus tracks.

Go for it - but they must be newly recorded for this season please.

Prize.

Just one.
A no expense spared, made in China, “Australia” baseball cap.

I haven't entered since March? What? Oy.

I'm going to ponder this and see if I can come up with something to record when I get back from England! Great theme!

Some ideas to get you going -
Spike - The Top 10 Songs About Food (http://www.spike.com/articles/pa1r3a/the-top-10-songs-about-food)
Songfacts Songs With Food In The Title (http://www.songfacts.com/category-songs_with_food_in_the_title.php)

Fun fact of the day: Hawaiians consume more spam/capita than anywhere else in the world (6 million cans/ann. pop. 1.4 million!!). So whoever covers this one will be performing the ukulele food song to end all ukulele food songs :)

Should be a good one Sir... all sorts of random ideas are entering my head already!
I do like Seasons that are "songs mentioning a thing" as they provide a nice wide variety of entries that usually introduce me to all sorts of new songs and artists.
I had a week off last week (I know, sinful!) so I'm looking forward to a fun week :)

Here is a brand new re-vamp of this song with my Gretsch Uke. Hopefully its an improvement on my bonus entry of the same song in Season 24 (Guilty Pleasures) where I entered loads of bonus songs. There are three mentions of food in this Classic ABBA track. Hope you enjoy.

Great theme idea, but you stepped on toes by starting it too early. Around midnight, central US time, is the launch time for a new Season so the previous host gets a full week of pleasure.

Just came back from 8 days visiting Rome and Pompeii with 40 of my students and saw the theme. This a great theme to jump back into the seasons with after missing the previous two. Several songs pop up immediately. This is going to be fun!

Thank you for providing me with some food for thought - see what I did there (week 68 food). I'm sure you won't mind me returning my own food for thought with a quotation from Elbert Hubbard which goes as follows. "Don't take life too seriously, you will never get out of it alive" :agree:

And here I had always thought this originated with Pogo cartoonist Walt Kelly, who said "Don't take life so serious, son, it ain't nohow permanent". One of my best original songs quoted this. Now I find the line is at least 50 years older than that. Live and learn.

Yes Drew, thankyou to pabrizzer for stepping in. However, the basic principles of courtesy and respect apply to all, whether you are stepping in to assist at the last minute or otherwise

Dave, I think you are missing the point. It's not about taking life seriously. It's about showing respect to other folks. The time of your entry being posted is irrelevant. When a new season is posted, people move on, we all know that. The migration begins immediately, whether or not you are planning or recording an entry, it's what happens. To post the next week when it is barely the start of the weekend in US is an insult quite frankly and makes me feel like I've wasted my time. It's the principle I'm talking about and it's the second time this has happened. But thanks for the laugh, that's a great quote.

Ok, you will all be glad I am now done with my rant and with this thread. Consider the dummy spit over.

Enjoy your week everyone. Bon Appetit.

With respect to all, might I suggest when one Seasonista rubs another the wrong way, a private message is usually the best way to open a discussion---that way if any feelings are hurt or any misunderstandings arise they can be dealt with by those directly involved, while the rest of us blithely go on listening to LWIII, eating, strumming, and humming.

That being said, it's certainly important for us to discuss issues as they arise, so this wonderful community can stay wonderful, or somehow get even wonderfuller.

PS Viva las Seasonistas!!!

PPS Season 66 results will be up this weekend!

But see it was posted on Saturday Hawaii Time. Give or take 22 minutes.
At one time the theme would be announced well in advance on the list of seasons to come with the conditions posted later.
What has been happening is that people have been posting the season later and later on Saturday Hawaii time.
And now it has become a rule that we can hit people over the head with?
Saturday to think and Sunday to do your vid or if you're busy you have the other end of the week.
It was actually posted around Saturday 8:00pm here in Oz.

I have requested that people not post their vid till Sunday.

And the notion that people can only concentrate on one thread at a time on this forum is one I just don't get. I'll be heading straight over to see what is happening in Jon's season straight after posting this.
We can all walk and chew gum here right?

Just checked it was posted at 7:48pm Saturday Australian time - so it was 22 minutes early.

I thought people would like to wake up and see the new season on its way and enjoy the last days of the previous one,
WRONG!

Look - it was my intention to follow the rules and post on Saturday Hawaii time. I intended to post as early as possible on Sat and may have been early by 22 minutes.
It was not a DAY early.

I requested that people not post til Sunday.

I don't like leaving things to the last minute - except very onerous things.
It was not my intention to do anything other than kick off a new season.

I am finding the accusations of toe stepping and rudeness very hard to deal with to the point that it has totally taken the fun and joy that I normally feel towards the seasons away.

Being hit over the head with rules that I intended to follow ain't fun.

I appreciate your good intentions, but in 67 weeks I don't think we've ever started on Saturday night, Hawaii time. The guideline says late Saturday night, US mainland time (which I think is ~noon or 1pm Sunday, Sydney time).

You're an attentive host with a good theme. For a fresh start, why not start a whole new Season 68 thread five hours from now, and close down this thread? (You can do that yourself on your first post.) With a clean slate, the smiles will come back! :)

What is said can't be unsaid just by removing the posts. Too easy. Being careful of what we say, especially publicly on the forum, is the time to think about whether we are causing smiles or frowns.

The seasons have an overlap. They do. Getting upset by how many hours is not a good look I agree.

But stains can be very difficult to remove. Don't spill stuff I say.

A song about food, shelter, and companionship... From the musical My fair Lady
which was based on the play Pygmalion by the socialist and Irish author George Bernard Shaw.

One could contest that chocolate is not a food and more of a delicacy, if eaten on its own.
But if incorporated into a pie or some cookies it could be considered as a food.
Although I have no doubt that there exists some people, who could survive solely by eating
chocolate, citing such benefits as
- healthier heart,
- weight loss,
- reduced stress,
- removal of skin blemishes and unwanted facial hair,
- improved sexual prowess,
- increased intelligence,
- the ability to predict the lottery numbers,
- promotes emotional stabiity,
- improves decision making,
- maximizes physical dexterity,
- controls hot flashes,
- cures ingrown toenails,
- contributes to a balanced outlook on life,
- gives a sense of proportion in all things,

and last but not least if consumed in vast quantities, it gives the consumer the ability
to skip the space time continuum and leap into the future by at least 22 minutes, which is
very convenient in certain circumstances. Scientists have attributed this phenomenom to
the release of endorphins to the brain. Chocolate makes people happy. If you are grumpy
for any reason then check your chocolate quota.

So this is my official entry for the 68th season... in support of Brian... no really
stop being silly-billys or I will report you all to the head-master.
No new thread... lets just get on with it.

Hi all,

Here is a song I wrote especially for this season. I must admit that I'm quite pleased with. :rolleyes:

My wife, Carmen, wants me to stress that this is NOT an autobiographical song, but rather an imagined first person narrative that deals with the negative side of food. It examines how an obsession with food can lead into some fearsome territory, health dangers, relationship problems, etc.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XijZfN0DvF0

PS Jon, I think this was heavily inspired by your LWIII week :)

PPS It's not the "Food Glorious Food" from Oliver, so anyone planning to do that can rest easy ;)

My entry for this week is "The Cheese Alarm" by Robyn Hitchcock. I learned this last September, figuring a food theme was inevitable. Then when we didn't have one, I made a video of this song in February. (If unused money "burns a hole in your pocket", this song was burning a hole in my gig bag.) So here's a new video -- shorter, cheesier.

The Irish still have a lot to learn from the Scots.
In Finland one of the popular drinks made famous
by the Lenningrad Cowboys is is SalmiakiKossu
A mixture of Turkish Peppers and Vodka.
I once tried to convince a Finn that the Scots
and a drink called Atholl Brose (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atholl_brose)... a mixture of
porridge oats, honey and whisky, but he thought
I was pulling his leg.

Does anybody else have strange foods from their region?

Vegemite (now owned by a US company)

But I believe they have Marmite in Great Britain which is more or less the same.

Back in the day I heard John Martyn do this song in Glasgow, but he called it Fishing Blues.
The song is credited to John Martyn but was in fact written by Henry Thomas.

Henry Thomas - Fishin' Blues (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVdpXdpzvYY)

If you listen to that recording you will also hear how it might have influenced Canned Heat

What about unusual expectations for food?
For example, here in N.C., we're supposed to eat Hoppin' John—black-eyed peas and rice—on New Year's Day for good luck. (These items are featured in displays on grocery-store end caps in the days before Dec. 31.) I prepare this every year because...well, you don't want to risk not doing it.
Collard greens on the side supposedly mean you'll get more money in the New Year, but I haven't found that to be true.

Growing up in Maine, the candy counter would sometimes have "Spruce Tree Gum", which was spruce pitch sliced into blocks of equal size.

When I vacationed in Newfoundland, I had the local specialty of pan-fried cod tongues. I didn't have seal flipper pie, but I did see seal flippers in a supermarket meat section.

yep having been fortunate to have lived in gods country (oz) i can honestly say vegimite tastes a hell of alot more saltier than marmite and being a pom, i have grown up on marmite, the only vegimite i liked was the cheesy one which was fairly similar to marmite.
talking of unusual foods, i used to love my mum cooking lambs or pigs hearts stuffed with sage and onion stuffing and roasted in the oven, then served with lovely thick gravy mash potatoes and greens and peas :))))

We are just going through our first jar of Ozemite. The totally Australian production has been organised by a guy called Dick Smith because Vegemite has fallen into American hands.

So now that "our" Vegemite has fallen into foreign hands the nationalistic fervor is fading.

yep having been fortunate to have lived in gods country (oz) i can honestly say vegimite tastes a hell of alot more saltier than marmite and being a pom, i have grown up on marmite, the only vegimite i liked was the cheesy one which was fairly similar to marmite.
talking of unusual foods, i used to love my mum cooking lambs or pigs hearts stuffed with sage and onion stuffing and roasted in the oven, then served with lovely thick gravy mash potatoes and greens and peas :))))

Dave did you ever have a cup of Bovril? Now that was a drink on a cold
winters day when there was still standing on the terraces. Bovril and football
are about as famous as Tennents and Primrose Hill :old:

Here is a song I wrote especially for this season. I must admit that I'm quite pleased with. :rolleyes:

And so you should be pleased, very very pleased.

Bloody awesome Berni. Loved everything - your vocals, your lyrics, and how well the instruments just flow the song along - fabulous.

No-one's ever written a song about vindaloo? Our German friend has obviously never heard of Fat Les ;)


http://youtu.be/0T1pXsJp_go

Explanation: At every international soccer championships, songs are released in the hope their team's fans will pick up on them and sing in support of their team. There are two types of such songs: 'official' and boring - with the exception of New Order's 'World In Motion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmBYmmXql6w)' released for the 1990 World Cup; and unofficial and entertaining. e.g., Dulwich Ukulele Club's 'There will be football ahead' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb1pbmOVWTk) for the 2010 World Cup.
This one, by English actor, rapscallion and father of Lily Allen, Keith Allen (also to be seen in the New Order video above), is one of the entertaining ones. It was released in support of England's campaign in the 1998 World Cup, held in France. As usual, England were knocked out in yet another penalty shoot-out, the deflating conclusion to an epic 2-hour encounter with Argentina in the round of 16 (1/8th final), notable for David Beckham's sending off and the then 18-yo Michael Owen's 1st-half wonder goal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tLE62dvSfI).

Indeed. Though tbf, the referencing of the vindaloo is not quite so prominent :)

Fun fact of the day: 'vindaloo' is a French-Hindi hybrid. It means quite literally 'meat and potatoes'. 'Vind'=viande (French for 'meat'); 'aloo' is Hindi for 'potatoe' (traditionalist that I am, I adhere to the Dan Quayle spelling).
Whither the French influence? Well, in spite of the fact that India was what officially gave the British Empire its name (Queen Victoria was created Empress of India in 1877, in response to her cousin, the King of Prussia, declaring himself Emperor of Germany in 1871 - the 2nd Reich, in case you ever wondered), there were still French (and Portuguese) enclaves dotted around Southern India (e.g., Pondicherry, as those of you who have read/seen 'The Life Of Pi' will know). When the British Raj gave way to independent Pakistan & India in 1948, one of (Indian) Prime Minister Nehru's first acts was to annex these imperial remnants to India.

I put most of my songs in Google Drive for easy acccess. here's a link to a PDF version with notes.

Barbecue Any Old Time (http://db.tt/IkjLv1NK)

The verse structure alternates between G > E7 > A > D7 figure one one verse and then the G > G7 > C7 > D7 figure. Both can return to the G walkdown at the end of each verse but it gets repetitive if you do it each time so I leave it off every other verse or so.

I guess it qualifies as a bonus track eventhough it is the same song as my entry. Played the open mic night here in Bangkok and included Guy Clark's Homegrown tomatoes in my set. Although I forgot to mention The Seasons, it was in my heart as a I played it.

Many thanks to the keyboard player for making a poorly framed, poorly lit video into something kinda cool. He did really well considering he said he didn't know the song. Then again, C-F-G7-C over and over and over isn't exactly challenging.

In his 'Rules of Chaos' (1969), Stephen Vizinczey, reflects at one point on how, when we look back at a traffic accident that befell us, we can see how all the events that led up to that accident fall into a logical sequence of events. Well, he asks, if that's the case, why do we persist in calling it an accident?

So it is with history, we look back and the events of 1989 seem as logical and inevitable as those of 1789, 1776, and 1688. But just as I bet that no seasonista around in May 1988, the date this classic punk/hip-hop fusion was released, could have predicted the fall of the Berlin wall 18 months later in Nov 1989, I'd bet that no-one in Paris in 1787 or Boston in 1774 or London in 1686, would have predicted the fall of the Bastille, the publication of the Declaration of Independence, or the flight of a King and the Bill of Rights just 18 months later either.

It's hard for seasonistas not around at the time to appreciate, and even for the rest of us to recall, 25(!) years on, the persistent nagging sense of living with the elephant of nuclear armageddon in the room. Not that it was in your face all the time; it just seeped into everything, including pop music.

All of this was going on in 1988: the evil regimes of apartheid in S. Africa and Pinochet in Chile being backed as bastions of liberty against communism by Margaret Thatcher & Ronald Reagan; Cold War by proxy in a bloody and vicious Angolan civil war; Sandanistas vs Contras in Nicaragua; Soviet SS-20s based in East Germany facing off against Pershing and Tomahawk cruise missiles at Greenham Common; the ramping up of the rhetoric of the Women's Peace Camp vs that of Ronald Reagan and Maggie Thatcher.

I'll stop there before I end up sounding like a 2nd-rate Billy Joel. And of course, we all know what happened in the end. But that it all ended being resolved so peacefully was one heck of a stroke of luck (*creaky voice* - "You young whipper-snappers! You don't know you're born!").

Here endeth then the preamble to my entry for the UU's 68th SOTU - this 1988 classic from Pop Will Eat Itself. The original uses loads of samples: "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges, "Funkytown" by Lipps Inc and "Crazy Horses" by The Osmonds, as well as the Twilight Zone theme tune. I just switched all my FX pedals to 11 :)

Here's a song by a short lived absurdist folk band out of Northern California from about 1987.

"would You Like to Have Something to Eat?" by the Donner Party.

I bought The Donner Party's first LP because I had read about them in a fanzine, plus the cover was cool. Even living in LA I have no recollection of them coming here to play. Anyhow, they were great.
I worked this one out by ear, which is not something I'm too good at..good thing it's simple and I have a chord wheel (http://www.chordwheel.com/).

here's my entry...for now...an old song from 1894, by harry champion, a british music hall performer...

http://youtu.be/xwNztkg6nF0

the only video i found with the original lyrics...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAlGdTisuGk

My wife lately bought Gorgonzola cheese
She saw it in a shop marked ‘cheap'
She thought that her loving husband it would please
Till only to my birthday it would keep
She placed that cheese safely in a drawer
A month went by or perhaps a little more
Some friends came on my birthday
And the dinner went off great
But when the Missus put the Gorgonzola on a plate.

Chorus: Oh, that Gorgonzola cheese
It wasn't over healthy I suppose
For the old tomcat fell a corpse upon the mat
When the “Niff” got up its nose
Talk about the flavour of the “crackling on the pork”
Nothing could have been so strong
As the beautiful effluvia that filled our house
When the Gorgonzola cheese went wrong.

My wife felt a bit offended just becos
The Company exclaimed “Great Scott”
Declared they'd like to know what animal it was
And asked me if a license I had got
The fire went dead clean out, and so did one
Of my old pals, who came back with a gun
Said he “Look out I'm going to fire; that cheese I mean to kill”
But when he'd smashed it all to bits, it got more lively still.

Chorus:

When those bits had done a waltz about the place
At ‘touch' they soon began to play
But when two pieces down the passage had a race
I thought I'd got hydrophobi-a
We burned pastilles, but lor' they did no good
Destroy that cheese we thought we never should
But when someone began to puff a good old ‘penny smoke'
The Gorgonzola cried, “I'm done it's time for me to croak.”

I don't write many song but this is an original song about dieting.
A bonus song from a long time ago... come back Deach all is forgiven ;-)

Negative Calories Blues.


Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!
What a promise divine - what a sugary treat.
Pudding and pies - beans and peas
Buy anything - just eat what you please


Salt and ice-cream - belly fat pork
There is no difference - between butter or Stork.
Now there is a promise - you just can't beat.
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


Triple quarter pounder -where does it stop
Eat what you like - if it's got lettuce on top
Blubber and skin - and fast frozen meat
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


The more you eat - the more weight you loose
Buy what you want - no need to choose
Mix yoghut and garlic - they'll go down a treat
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


Make your body - a fat burning machine!
Drink olive oil - it's exceptionally clean
Dress your salad - with hard skin from your feet
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


You don't need to fast - you don't need to pray
Just double your intake of food everyday.
No charts to offend - no weightwatchers to cheat
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


Flatten your stomach - get rid of the flab
Eat oysters and whelks - and fine Cromer crab
Just keep on eating - never admit to defeat
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


Just be amazed - watch the pounds disappear
For breakfast drink - a six pack of beer
Just don't mix protein - along with your wheat
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!


Speed eat your food - and make your pulse race.
Use lots of energy - getting food to your face.
Your heart must pound - with a rhythmical beat
Negative calories - lose weight while you eat!"

Here is a terrible tale of murder most foul. :stop:

The moral is..... Be sure of your sweetheart before you eat food she's made for you.

Lord Randal an old ballad and variants have been found throughout the British Isles and in N. America.

The question and answer form of the song was used by Bob Dylan in "Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall". In fact the first two lines of each verse were virtually a direct lift from Lord Randal.

You can have a Dilly Bar, or an M&M Blizzard to go, oooh. It’s your choice, they’re all waiting, at the Dairy Queen
Friday night and you want a treat. Looking out for a place to eat.
Where you can get a burger, maybe get some fries. You’re having hunger pains.
Another restaurant just won’t do. Nothing else compares to DQ.
With the soft serve ice cream, everything is good. You want some chicken strips.
With gravy for you to di-i-i-ip.
Welcome to Dairy Queen, home of the, flame broiled cuisine. Dairy Queen, feeling like I’m only thirteen, yeah.
You can have a Dilly Bar, or an Oreo Blizzard to go, oooh. It’s your choice, they’re all waiting, at the Dairy Queen.
Ice cream machine is jammed again. Customers are at their wits end.
Wanting a frozen goody, gotta get their fix. You want some fries from France. And when you get the chance…
You’ll go to Dairy Queen, home of the, flame broiled cuisine Dairy Queen, feeling like I’m only thirteen, yeah.
You can have a Dilly Bar, or a Butterfinger Blizzard to go, oooh. It’s your choice, they’re all waiting, at the Dairy Queen.

Here's a quick bonus track. This is a Richard and Linda Thompson song. I have no idea where the last verse came from. Maybe it wandered in from "Walk on the Wild Side".

I'm surprised no one's done "Cheeseburger in Paradise" yet. I thought that would be the first song done. I don't know if I can find time to do it myself. It's been very busy, with my daughter just turning 18 and graduating high school, college planning tasks, vacation planning tasks, etc. And some time spent this week observing a nest of baby bunnies just a couple feet from our house -- I got some great video Tuesday night:

Baby Cottontail Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RODQ1WDXUDI)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another song that won't get done this week is an original song I wrote for a former co-worker. But here's the lyrics:

My friend Michael hears a voice in his head
And it keeps telling him to keep us all fed
It prods him daily: “Go and bake a dessert
Just one more baklava, and no one gets hurt”

Cause he MUST -- BRING -- FOOD
He fights the urge, but what can he do?
He MUST -- BRING -- FOOD

Just when you’re grumbling and moping along
He hits you in the chops with a chocolate bombe
Keeps the morale up for the office place bunch
Can’t get a raise? Well, at least come get some lunch

Cause he MUST -- BRING -- FOOD
He tries to fight it, but what can he do?
He MUST -- BRING -- FOOD

Takeout mu-shu, marinated flank steak
Try his new recipe for passionfruit cake
Almond frosting on a brownie so rich
You’re stuffed, he’s pulling out another dish

Cause he MUST -- BRING -- FOOD
It’s not a question of desire or mood
He MUST -- BRING -- FOOD

When you’re ready, there’s a pot roast to carve
You might get laid off, but you’ll never starve
If you could taste all the wonders he’s known
You’d nibble life right down to the bone

He MUST -- BRING -- FOOD
He tries to fight it, but what can he do?
He MUST -- BRING -- FOOD

Bonus track. Coulter's Candy.

Robert Colthard was a confectioner who sold his sweets round the towns on the Scottish Border at the turn of the 19th/20th century. The song started out as his advertising pitch but acquired a life of its own and became quite popular during the folk revival of the 50s & 60s in the UK.

The first ukulele video I made for You Tube was actually this song, but I have re recorded it for this week, changing the key from C to D in the process. If it looks like I'm playing in C, its because the uke is tuned ADF#B.

At one stage I thought we would be lucky to get about 20 entries - now we might even get 30.

It wasn't a season I had expected to host so I really do appreciate those who have contributed a song.

I have tried to keep up with comments and the playlists but please check the playlists (in the introductory post) and make sure I haven't somehow missed your video.

Ukuloonie uses these playlists to keep a valuable archive of these wonderful seasons so it is important that your video is there.

Joko's season will be announced very soon. I am looking forward to it. It's his first time as host so I do hope we support him.

And of course you still have until Midnight Sunday Hawaii time to contribute something to this season.

A fun theme, but surprisingly tough, for me at least, to find a song for! I eventually settled on this one for my entry—a great song by a great songwriter: Iron and Wine's "Bird Stealing Bread." A simple song, simply played. This is on an Ohana CK35-GS, linear tuning in Eb, Southcoast strings.

Utterly fantastic. Great harmonies by Caroline. That one may be going on my iPod.

When I went though my music collection looking for food songs, I was surprised how few I found. I had thought they were more plentiful than they are. There's still Jimmy Buffett's "Grapefruit - Juicy Fruit" and "Peanut Butter Conspiracy" if someone is stuck for a song.

Don't know the song but it was a beauty and what an absolutely delightful performance!
Just totally lovely guys.

Top performance - fine playing and vocals.
I do like most of the stuff I have seen from Iron and Wine. (Usually just one guy?)

If you haven't checked out Chrimess's entry do yourself a favour and watch it.
It is what I am terming crazyGREAT. Just a full on over the top fantastic performance!
Also Berni's wonderfully performed original.

Thanks Brian for my first 'shoutout' in 68 seasons-if this goes viral I might make 50 views. Bernie's song is indeed awesome, he is just a super talented artist.

OK, time to give Van Halen the ukulele treatment. The first song I thought of when I read the theme was "Ice Cream Man!" The song is about food, right? And nothing else?

Enjoy!

Gee - I forgot to add Greyghost's entry to the playlist - sorry mate.
It was a beauty too - so here it is so folks can have another look.
Thank you for letting me know greyghost.

This song has some really special memories for me; I learned it from a friend many years ago when I was in a theatre training program, and it always makes me think of him and of the other people who used to sing it with us. And it's about a sandwich!!! Well, sort of. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for a great Season! There are some really fun videos this week.

Lovely singing and playing Lily. It was BEAUT!
And nice to see another entry from a lady.
The seasons are becoming quite blokey. Thank you.

A big thanks to Myrna, Charlotte, Saskia (WeTigers), Meredith, Janet, Caroline and Lily for representing the ladies this week - hope I didn't miss anyone.
And there is still some time for more.

Took my new concert neck Firefly banjo ukulele out for a test spin this evening. Spicing it up a bit with some hot tamales. If I'm allowed more than one entry this is one. If not, this is a bonus.

Great job on this - your usually very high standard of performance.
Just one official entry so I'll add this beauty to the bonus playlist.

I have been looking forever for the chords for this song. Would you be so kind as to tell me what they are?

Sure. This isn't the original key, mind you, but it was how I could best work it out for myself. (Some of the chords aren't showing up in the right place here, but you get the idea):



G E7
Banana split for my baby
A7 D G
A glass of plain water for me
G E7
Banana split for my baby
A7 D7
A glass of plain water for me

G G7
Dispenser man, if you please
C A7
Serve my chick a mess of calories

G E7
Banana split for my baby
A D G
A glass of plain water for me

G
Slip back the lid, scoop everything in sight
G
Make it a rainbow of red, brown and white
G
Chocolate chip and everything that's nice
G A7 G
Tutti-frutti once and spumoni twice

G E7
Banana split for my baby
A D G
A glass of plain water for me

G
Spray the whipped cream for at least an hour
G
Pile it as high as the Eiffel Tower
G
Load it with nuts, about sixteen tons
G A7 G
Top it with a pizza just for fun

G E7
Banana split for my baby
A D G
A glass of plain water for me

G G7
Stack her up with crazy goo
C A7
'Cause that's the stuff she likes to wade right through

G E7
Banana split for my baby
A7 D G
A glass of plain water for me

G
Now add the cherries the kind she loves to munch
G
Skip one banana, use the whole darn bunch
G
Drown it in fudge, six or seven cans
G A7 G
Give her two spoons, she'll eat it with both hands

G E7
Banana split for my baby
A7 D G
A glass of plain water for me

G G7
Separate checks, it must be
C A7
Charge the split to her, the water to me

G E7
Oh the banana split's for my baby
A7 D G
And the glass of plain water's for me
E7
Ain't got no money
A7 D G
The glass of plain water's for me

That little lick I use is G A7 Gdim G.

Well fellow Seasonistas, first off congrats to all the entrants and especially the winners.
And chrimess...what friggin' kind of vitamins are you taking???
Anyway, I'd like to offer my apologies for not getting an entry in this week. Seems I bit off more than I could chew and tried getting a little too fancy on the chord melody for the song I had in mind and then also had troubles with the key on the vocals. Totally crashed and burned so I'll put it on the back burner for a future season.
For your listening pleasure Seasonistas..."Save the Bones For Henry Jones" by Nat King Cole and Johnny Mercer

the reason we swapped seats is because whenever we play live caroline always sits on my left, this is the first car video we have done and as she was driving we were the wrong way round

Back from vacation and catching up on the entries. Chrimess! Can't wait to watch yours. I had Eat It on my list as well but could not pull it off in time. So glad someone submitted it and even happier you won with it. Dave Wave, loved yours as well. Fine choices both. Thanks Pa for hosting another great season. Cheers mate!
