The prize
EDIT 1/10/09 - It's only day 2 and the competition is really fierce. I know I will have a hard time deciding so I am changing the prize.

TWO WINNERS will be chosen

The winners will get their pick of ANY ukulele from MainlandUkuleles.com or a Kala Jazz uke - Black, Natural or Sunburst complete with the usual MGM set-up. OR any uke or combination of ukes that cost equal or less than this one (MGM prices) OR if they are saving up for a really nice uke, and they need a couple hundred to get them there, as long as it's from MGM's store, I'd do that too.)

Good luck!!!!

The lyrics, except for the mmmmbop part, are actually not bad. I may even give it a try and make it into a blues song.

The song is about keeping the people that really matter close to you because so many people are fakers and will be gone when you are down and really need them.

I am not joking, listen to the song. Hanson rocks. I said it, so what, wanna fight about it? ;)

Deach sure knows how to turn things around when it's needed the most. And this contest is relevant to my interests. :O

Always dug Hanson. Even after I found out that they're dudes. Gotta give them credit; they managed to put out some impeccably-crafted pop tunes, and made it cool for kids to be music stars after Michael Jackson had long since gotten old and reclusive. While my biggest musical influences as a kid were Jimi Hendrix and the Kinks, I thought it was neat that some kids somewhere around my age were writing and touring and recording already.

I assume they are correct, I followed along with the video on Youtube.


lyrics:
You have so many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You're going through all this pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast
And they're gone so fast
So hold on the ones who really care
In the end they'll be the only ones there
When you get old and start losing your hair
Can you tell me who will still care
Can you tell me who will still care

Mmm bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, ba duba dop
Ba du

Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose
You can plant any one of those
Keep planting to find out which one grows
It's a secret no one knows
It's a secret no one knows

In an mmm bop they're gone, in an mmm bop they're not there
In an mmm bop they're gone, in an mmm bop they're not there
Until you lose your hair
But you don't care

Mmm bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, ba duba dop
Ba du

Can you tell me? You say you can but you don't know
Can you tell me which flower's going to grow?
Can you tell me if it's going to be a daisy or a rose?

Can you tell me which flower's going to grow?
Can you tell me? You say you can but you don't know

I am not afraid to say that I absolutely LOVE this song. I love it. In fact, I own the Middle of Nowhere album and play it at least once a month or so.

It's bubblegum pop, but it's bubblegum at it's best.

I cannot carry a tune in a bucket, but I think I may give this a shot...

No argument from me Rayan. I keep Mmmbop on my Ipod as well as a copy of Underneath.

These guys had a way overplayed hit with Mmmbop. Overplayed takes a large amount of talent though. A song needs to be good to be overplayed....kind of like I'm yours.

Hanson still makes thier living selling recorded music and selling tickets to live performances. Hanson does indeed rock.

Good luck though, I've always felt happy tunes made the best Uke tunes and Mmmbop is a pretty happy tune. I'm looking forward to the results of this contest.

Great Job on the song Ken. I can only use the word "Haunting" to descirbe your performance.

I was listening to it yesterday after school in my classroom and a couple of my fellow teachers walked by and heard it. Even after they heard the words M-bop they did not realize what song it was that was playing. I had to play it a couple of times until they figured it out :D

So now there's two winners(according to the first post), and you can choose a MGM uke or a Mainland Uke, hoosierhiver's company. That's incredible. Deach you are truly generous and awesome to support UUers in multiple ways like that.

First of all: this is awesome Deach. Not only a fun idea which has already spawned several versions of the song (arguably) superior to the original, but incredibly generous as well. I salute you, sir.

Second, a question: You require the face to be visible to, I assume, verify that it is the same person both playing and singing. Must the face be visible the entire time?

Sorry, a third question: The lyrics must be complete - I get that. Must they be unaltered as well as complete? Or would doubled choruses and perhaps interjected segments be acceptable provided the lyrics, as Hanson wrote, were in the right order and were all there?

No, just long enough so I know it's you doing the work.

Hello! I am new here. My band, Organ Failure (http://organfailure.org), has actually been covering this song for years. My musical partner Flakey loves to torture people.

I know I am breaking the rules by not "saying" this is for Deach's Mmbop contest, but I didn't know there was such a contest last night when this was recorded. It was a sort of fluke discovery when I went to upload my videos this morning.

Oddly enough (or maybe not so oddly) until I watched the vid from those cute ladies who won the Bushman contest I'd never heard this song, just heard of it.

I'm down with Rayan on this. It's a hella good piece of pop music. I'm actually sorry I was such a snob and ignored it for so long.

I may actually have to enter this contest, unlike most of the others that have rolled by in the recent past, including the Bushman one.

Belgium is not exactly uke-paradise. Only about 3 shops sell ukes, Mahalo's... Just a few days ago I entered one of those shops and asked for a tenor ukulele, that guy had no idea what I was talking about, "A big ukulele?? I could order it, but I'm sure nobody wants something like that... But doesn't that flying V ukulele look cool !?"... I bought mine in Germany, in the musicstore in köln. That shop is enough of a reason for me to envy you for living in Germany.

Oh, no question at all, yes. I did the last one in the nude though, and it got me nowhere, though perhaps because it was only shot from the shoulders up? But would I go full frontal on Youtube for a tenor uke? Absolutely. I'm actually already full-frontal on Youtube, if you know where to look......

well, köln is faaaar away from me, you live closer to it... in my area is no Uke... but whatever, I think it is a European problem, I mean look at UK even they don't have much of Ukes going around (as many of cities in USA don't...)

Now, I know next to nothing about psychology but I really think that pure hate would never elicit this level of responce. I say this as someone who freely admits to loving this song. Are any of the entrants ready to admit that just maby it's a good song?:D

Hello. Me again. Since my original entry was not really created for the contest, but recorded the night before I knew there was a contest, i did another entry just for the contest.
I am afraid that this will not be the last of me, however, because my musical partner feels left-out, despite the fact that he does not play the ukulele much.
There will most likely be another entry with my entire band.
You have no idea how much this song has affected us over the years.

P.S.
The reason my first entry was recorded in two parts was because the camera was on it's low-res setting and automatically stopped recording after 3 minutes. I have scant knowledge of our fancy video editing program and little patience, otherwise I woulda fixed it.

Maybe people are entering because contests are fun or because they are motivated by the prize.

The intent of this contest was have some fun and restore the 'niceness' of this forum after it started getting ugly with the Bushman results thread. Please don't bring it back. Enjoy the entries.

No hate. Really. The original is very good, for those who enjoy that type of genre. It's simply that the lyrics lend themselves to some amazingly funny covers in different genres.

For the record, I don't love MmmBop, but I don't hate it either. It's fun and makes you smile, and it's a good piece of pop-song writing. This competition, however, is the most fun I've ever had on the internet!

it was the akai headrush II which cost around £100 so whats that? around $140 at the moment. and the other pedal which i used for the reverb on the snare beat was a yamaha magic stomp which i got 2nd hand for £50

i'm sure there are a few around on ebay. the loop pedal was hard to get at first due to KT Tunstall using one and everywhere selling out

but they are great fun to muck about with , i've only used it live once so far

It's not often realised (mostly because it isn't true) that Mmm Bop was originally written in Latin, and was one of the first hits for the new wave of Gregorian Chant boy bands that were all the rage in the late 13th century. On that somewhat spurious basis, I have stretched the rules somewhat by not using Hanson's lyrics as such in my entry, although if you translate them back into English you should find (if my Latin isn't horribly error stewn) that the language is the only thing I have changed. So, yes, Mmm Bop in Latin. Not quite sure why, but here it is:

As I said in my entry...I have been forced to play mmmbop in my band for YEARS...some sort of character-building torture exercise or something...there must be some reason....My musical partner went through a phase where he was obsessed with Hanson and the rest of us had to suffer. We also had to play Melissa Ethridge's "Come to My Window":mad:..Am not sure how we managed to put up with that for as long as we did. There was an eventual coup over that one....but mmmbop remains.

I switched it over to a minor key a long time ago just so that I could stand it and have refused to play it any other way...it's a pretty depressing song when played in minor.
