So here it is already Season 73 :-)

fReedOm oR is tHat ANARCHY?

I'm coming up to the one whole year since I purchased my first Uke on holiday last year. I've managed to enter quite a few seasons although the past month or so I've been mainly absent due to a house move. So if you're new you may not have come across me. Those that have may know I have a tendency not to take too greater interest in the competition rules!

I mean, how can you have rules on a rock and roll themed week? ;-)

So I've been looking forward to this...

THERE ARE NO RULES FOR THIS WEEKS SEASON ;-) ;-)

Well accept for:

- No videos are to be posted on the thread till Sunday MST American time the next day. It just helps the previous host have a good finale to his or her week. (So that's just polite more than a rule).

- The week ends Sunday night Hawaiian time11.59. pm. (Which has to be a rule otherwise this isn't a competition).

Otherwise, this week you are freeeeee...

Songs about 'Freedom' or it's close cousin 'Anarchy' is the idea.

I've some prize EP's to send my top favourite few. Mrs B (you may remember from season 44) will also help choose the winners.

Just one season 73 playlist here (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLILd3PqNSzZWN3haJ8VfM8L2Uir3-QYqn)

Have fun, sing for freedom, or simply go AWOL.

Bob.

a song about Freedom: King's X Freedom.
I always read these lyrics as being about freedom not always being what you this it is, and in my own opinion, blaming God, for things that men do, makes no sense ;). Anyway King's X is one of the most underrated bands I know so if you have not heard them yet check them out.
And there is some anarchy in the chorus ;).

You can't get to loose with the rules for me. So here are the ones I'm trying to ignore here.
Practice before recording, or at least look up the lyrics to make sure you have them complete and/or in the right order.
Figure out what key might work with your vocal range.
Never turn your back on the audience.
If you screw up start over.
Dont post things you've recorded and posted for other seasons before
I think that almost does it:

For a bit of real anarchy go for Otway leaping on top of Wild Willies amplifier,
mistiming his jump, and coming crashing down on the most sensitive parts of
his anatomy, yet while writhing on the floor still has the testicular fortitude to
finish the song, much to the the disgust of Wild Willie who has had his foot pedels
and amplifier trashed. Best bit of live pop TV ever.

OK- the rule I can't stand is that we never talk about PROCESS. All we get is product (and lets face it, I often have dismal product).
HOWEVER- the process...I have the best intentions every time I pick my Ukulele up. That much I can promise.

So yeah- the unspoken rule about not talking about WHY you are playing a song (other than "I really like this song") is out the window.
That and I am regretfully wearing pants here.
No rules and the broad topic of "Freedom" as our task? Welcome to my head.

Okay, I haven't listened to the other videos yet, not all of them anyway but I cannot imagine anything better than this.
I think Dave may have made up a rule that only he was 'aware' of and played two of my favorite songs AND wore pants as far as I know, in what may be the most important troika in seasonista history.

...well
even if it isn't, he still sang more beautifully than ever. dulcet tones, eh? (nod's to Canada week)> What is a dulcet anyway? is it like a boring ocelot?

Dave I hearby adopt you as the weird baby brother I never had (although I do have a regular non-weird one). Love you man!

Dave has gone all soft. I know all about soft and slow. If ever there is a neo punk comeback
all the songs will be played soft and slow instead of hard and fast. This will accomplish two things.
We will be able to hear and understand the words, and punk will have a revival and gain a new
audience.

I sat in on a jam session behind the police station in Waikiki for the first time on Sunday night and did this number. It seemed to go well, so I recorded another version on Diamond Head Beach. There's a bit of wind rumble, which I tried to minimize, and some wave noise, as you would expect.

I've loved this song for a long time - an early classic of Mr. Bob Dylan about the yearning to be free, I Shall Be Released. Hope you all enjoy it.

OK here's my entry for this week. I may manage a bonus in a day or two. This one was recorded with my new Zoom H2 mic. Still working out the kinks with that one. Next time I need to try better positioning.

This is an old tune I ran across a while back and this was finally an excuse to work out the chords. It's a tune by Mickey Jupp called "School". It's kinda about learning that life has rules, a LOT of them and the loss of that naive sense of freedom you had as a youth as your education begins.

When I decided to make a cajon I also made one for Curt. Very inexpensive to make BTW.
I'm so glad I did as I now have a cajon player to join me in a vid when I need one.

What is it about this season that makes me think I can be this snarky. Maybe because it's freedom and an snarky week? This is from my favorite songwriter of the last decade of the recent century, Stew. His band was called The Negro Problem and he eventually had a musical on Broadway called "Passing Strange" that was filmed for theatrical release by some basketball fan named Spike Lee:

I thought this would fit freedom: Sting - If you love somebody, set them free.
Not what I had in mind when I started recording but interesting anyway.

Now that was a different arrangement ;-)

What is it about this season that makes me think I can be this snarky. Maybe because it's freedom and an snarky week? This is from my favorite songwriter of the last decade of the recent century, Stew. His band was called The Negro Problem and he eventually had a musical on Broadway called "Passing Strange" that was filmed for theatrical release by some basketball fan named Spike Lee:

Very very very very very good choice of song ;-)

Another bit from our get-together last night.
Berni wrote lyrics to this traditional tune while attending a fiddle class.
I was honored to be able to sing it with him.
This is like us channeling the Dubliners or something.

Dear FiL,
Thanks for the note on YT. It's nice to have someone else who digs Stew here. So, here's a blog post of his from like 2003:
"alternate take 1
the people who love you are crazy they can’t help it really they can’t they are those teenaged girls in wet auditorium seats hysterical before the beatles only you are in a high chair with chocolate smeared across your face or sweating in a bright red high school football uniform on the sidelines NOT in a nice three button English cut suit or cuban heels but IT DOESN’T MATTER the people who love you are teenaged girls and you are the beatles you with snot flowing in a nightmarish diaper set to vertigo or lurching lumbering across an auditorium stage clutching a diploma grinning like a monster the people who love you the mother father aunts uncles grandparents are like teenaged girls and you are the beatles and like the beatles you have no idea what to do with the oversized beachball comet of love that chases you down high streets or shocks you like a microphone and when you find yourself racing thru the picadilly circus of your mind while chased by all that love you might leap into a limo and look at the john that is you and the paul that is you and the ringo that is you and the george that is you and mutually realize as the love pounds ferociously on the tear stained limousine window that you have no idea what the **** is going on."

Yes!, and "Lincoln" A+.
Watching all of last years well-received flicks lately and it is the clear winner so far. I did like "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" a good bit though partly for soundtrack reasons.

Gosh, I hope it isn't a rule not to talk about movies in the seasons.
Semi-obligatory music comment.
Have we ever had a season of songs from movies?
Sounds familiar.

Hi all, here's a video, biting off more than I can chew again:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMjkI2hieQ8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMjkI2hieQ8

Because I have lots of time and I've a touch of the seasons OCD, I have been thinking about this theme a great deal. It seems impossible to think about Freedom without ending up running in circles. There are so many angles to the word, and, In the USA at least, so much baggage attached to it. It can be personal, interpersonal, societal, political, artistic, illusory, aspirational, abstract, physical, sexual...
So many songs try to embody the feeling of freedom, or talk about it in vague terms..
..here's a song that talks about it in a very specific way: Freedom of Choice by Devo
It's messy: I had a 3 track multi-track version that I managed to destroy by inadvertently trashing the main track, so this is the straight one track version remake..
I'm free to ramble on all I want, right? Anyway this song's original video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVGINIsLnqU) is definitely worth a watch. I remember seeing Devo on Saturday Night live in 1979 (http://vimeo.com/54254951) when I was an impressionable lad. I was impressed. Their level of weirdness was high, they were scary and funny and nerdy and rockin' and yes, freeing...
Also their early period drummer died a couple of weeks ago, so here's to Alan Myers..

Very high quality this week! My conscience (I don't think I've ever written that word before, it looks odd to me) is starting to tell me off each week I don't comment on any videos. I'm going to try to make a habit of sitting down on a Sunday and commenting, starting (hopefully) this week.

I've not managed to record anything with Matt for this week because we're busy rehearsing for an hour we have to play at the local pub in just a few weeks. No ukuleles shall be involved on said occasion, which is sad, but we have no method of amplification, and we like to be LOUD! Anyway, I'm just working on a quick song now, might even throw in a few harmonies if I can manage to sing them!

This was one of the great anthem songs of the sixties. Anytime that I hear it, it always reminds me of the Civil Rights protests, the Vietnam War and draft protests and all of the "young people speaking their minds." It speaks volumes for freedom and standing up for what you believe in. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was written because of a night club closing on the Sunset Strip ((Pandora's Box) and a curfew being imposed to stop young people from hanging out on the Strip in front of the clubs. A local radio station called for a rally and about a thousand people showed up and had quite a lively protest. Being a teen in the late sixties and one of those who frequently hung out at night in downtown Atlanta at the Krystal on Peachtree I can identify with the L.A group. It actually could be a great anthem song for some things that are going on right now. It is also my Season 73 entry.

Certainly possible, Moon. I think I surprised a fellow musician by playing the opening bit (It's a boy, Mrs. Walker and all that) and then bumping into a sloppy version of "pinball wizard" on a little soprano earlier this week. The Who isn't complex if you stick to chords. It's Pete's leads and those awesome Ox bass lines that are difficult to reproduce.

Season 73. Great song by John Mayer called Who Says. I was lucky to be able to do this while Audrey was home for a brief visit. Anyone with kids in college will appreciate this song about being free from responsibility......

I think you should feel free to share it here whenever the cloud allows.

I am looking forward to next week's challenge. Meantime I've been taking plenty piccys of Austria & have some thoughts on how to use some of them. I will be back home Tuesday.

If there's one thing I feel represents freedom... it's the indulgence to perform a Wham song in your local high street!! Or maybe that is anarchy? So here's "Freedom" by 80's pop sensation, WHAM!


http://youtu.be/Rp-LZf7uBm8

You see, I performed my first ever solo ukulele gig today and so I thought I'd record my entry this week in situ! I played at a local craft and produce fair on the high street in the town centre on a hot sunny day here in Wales and had enormous fun doing it!

I had to do a song from the first anarchist voice I heard---John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten). I chose "Rise" by Public Image Ltd. Lydon adapted the verses from interviews with political prisoners who'd been tortured by the South African government. The chorus is an old Irish wish for safe travels.

Greetings all,

Maybe the people who know the most about freedom are the ones who don't actually experience it.
Here's a song that supposedly originates in the regiments of black union soldiers in the US civil war (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/70/4th_United_States_Colored_Infantry.jpg/1280px-4th_United_States_Colored_Infantry.jpg). Those soldiers are heros in my book. Going to war for short pay to do the bloodiest jobs, and facing torture and murder if they were captured. They certainly knew a thing or two about the meaning of Freedom.

Oh and today is the 150th anniversary of the New York Draft Riots.. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Draft_Riots)a bad spell for black New Yorkers who were beaten, killed, lynched, evicted..

My entry for Season 73. "Which Side Are You On" (Wahoo Skiffle Crazies).

I thought I would tune it up a bit for the season, so I re-wrote the first two verses to suit the theme. The last two verses are as per Wahoo Skiffle Crazies.


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

Which side are you on, which side are you on
Which side are you on, which side are you on
Come on all you people, good news to you I'll tell
Season seventy three is here, the rules have gone to hell
For this uke'y season, the rules are pretty sparse
Our leader's into anarchy, entries could be such a farce

Which side are you on ......
There's people playing in the nude, while others wear a suit
It-don't state you play a ukulele, so I'm going with a flute
Freedom or anarchy, your conscience must decide
Cross the line with every care, no return from the windward side

Which side are you on ......
Don’t follow new world orders, don’t listen to their lies
The march of empire never ends, until its globalised
Trouble all around the world, it looks that way to me
People don't know what to do, they don't know where to be

Which side are you on ......
My daddy went to Woodstock, and I am Woodstock son
I’ll take my stand with liberty, till every battle’s won
But one question still remains, to which we must respond
Two roads lead from where we are, which side are you on

Which side are you on ......
Which .. side .. are .. you .. on

Congrats to the three rebels-even though you are west coast and gold coast you would have made excellent carolina rebels!

High Fives all around, and random acts of anarchy as well! Thanks BB for a great theme, and congrats to all for a fantastic week, some very thoughtful and fun entries.
And BB, those CD's will be signed, right?
Thank You!

Wow! That was the FASTEST turn around ever- well done Mister B. Congrats to the players, I enjoyed this season more than I ought to publicly (I will miss freedom from pants week immensely).
Thanks for liking my little take on Bolan- I was way too young to touch that immediately, but yeah- he is one of my heroes as well.
Great week.

I am not sure that rewarding me for doing something early is a wise thing but I'll take it anyway.
There were some great entries (and I have watched them all) so again the cliche that everyone wins who enters a season.
Thanks for hosting the season Bob!

Congrats to everyone. I have not had the sweet sweet taste of victory in a season, but I still feel like a winner each week. So many great new ideas, songs and artists to explore is always the best gift of all. Tons of fun again.

Cheers!

I have no idea how this relates to Freedom or Anarchy, but hey there were no rules!

Thanks again for the entry.

It was a video response to my response to SillyDave's 'Atom & Evil' - do try and keep up ;)

*oops! Hadn't read to the end of the thread before I posted.

Thieves & Shadows! Yaaay!!!

The week was already over and there were some silly jokes about atomic particles,
so I did a silly response which featured three sub- atomic particles... 'onset stroof Guv.

Spiffing winners, well chosen BB!
Congratulations all and special congratulations if you're still in your first few posts.
More seasonistas means more great music.

No rules, no shirt, no shoes, no servants...oh, sorry cervix, damn...serpants

Hey Bob, only just realized I had not looked at the winners video for this great season, and also never expecting much, I was very excited to get a mention for the lyrics I wrote - thanks heaps Bob.

This was a great and somewhat unusual theme which worked out great - very well run season, thanks.

Greetings Bob,
Expecting some eBay stuff so ripped open a package and got a pleasant surprise. It was your son's CD.
Haven't had a listen yet but thank you for sending it and for your season.
Cheers.

Glad it arrived. I was just wondering whether everyone had received them safe and sound.
