    Default Don't Know Why - Norah Jones - Ukulele Cover

    Do you also have a feeling that ukulele cover ought to be more lively or ... jaunty then the original song?

    I never dreamed a Russian playing Nirvana as a bossa nova was possible, but it works. Brilliantly!

    From time to time I do take some occasional song and try to play it bossanova way.

    Personally I like this one better

    This one is a little better vocal range, but I still like the Nirvana one since it is more unexpected. Both are really good though.
