    I am half convinced by my narrator's attitude to ageing in this song.... But only half-convinced.

    Here's a happy sounding little number about our mortality and life's natural narcotic that makes us eventually accept it.

    The tune doesn't sound all that original to me - I think it draws on memories of loads of country songs of my youth. But if anyone recognises specific phrases, feel free to let me know.

    Hello again, Jim! My second song for this week, which might be a bit of a cheat - but the kissing aspect is fundamental to the lyrics.

    Well here goes, the Pearl Jam version of "Last Kiss", recorded on my phone (which oddly has better audio quality than most of my other pads etc).

    Hi Friends, this is an original song by us, La Wolf (WS64 and Kale'a). With the 311th Season of the Ukulele category of "Kisses", we thought it was a great fit so wanted to share it with our friends here. Thank you so much for listening. Unfortunately, we are not able to do a live video together because we live on different continents. But we hope you enjoy this recorded vocal version. Both Wolfgang and I appreciate it so much.

    I had a different song planned for my 2nd entry, but then the flu struck and I didnít feel vocally up to it. This Blink song isnít great, but itís better than the other one would have been. Sickness is wrecking our elementary school this year, and I handle every single book that every single sick kid turns back in.

    My No. 1 this week. Originally a hit for Brian Hyland in 1962 but later covered by Gary Lewis & the Playboys, Bobby Vinton and, most recently by Jason Donovan in 1989. It's the Brian Hyland version I remember.

    Default Screen Kiss

    This is pretty much my experience with the Seasons too, though I tend to raid my record collection/iTunes rather than search online for inspiration if none strikes. That's where I found my first entry (in my iTunes library), but this is the 'irresistible' song that popped immediately into my head when I saw the theme. The reason it's my 2nd entry is that it must have taken me around 12 hours in total to work out some chords (there's none available online - I'll post what I've worked out below). Still haven't worked out the intro riff, so just went straight in with the vocal.

    I was secretly hoping you were going to do this and here it is. Nailed it bro!
