    Default Season 355 "a dance to the music of time"

    Hello, dear fellow “Seasonistas” and welcome to this week’s Season, which, as the title suggests, is all about time. Please bring songs which mention specific times on the clock, or, failing that, a particular time of day … morning, afternoon, evening, night. This Season is not so much about the passing of time (which Randy covered in his Season not so long ago), but much more about events which occur at a particular hour during the course of a day.

    All the usual rules apply:-

    1. A new recording for the Season.

    2. The video must mention that it is for Season 355.

    3. Ukulele must be the main instrument, although multi-
    tracking and overdubbing are both OK.

    4. Original songs are very welcome, as are collaborations.

    5. All videos must be posted to this thread, but not before
    midnight tonight, Hawaiian time.

    6. The Season lasts 8 days and ends at midnight, Hawaiian
    time on Sunday, 9th December.




    7. PLEASE POST NO MORE THAN THREE VIDEOS FOR
    THE MOMENT!

    (I am suffering from end of the month syndrome and the
    new month’s Internet allowance doesn’t start till
    midnight Tuesday (French time), after which, the
    limit might be lifted.)

    There WILL be a few prizes! (And, here, I have a horrible confession to make … those winners who were late in sending me their addresses for the last Season I did, have still not received their prizes. I will send them out at the same time as I despatch the prizes for this week's Season.)

    Here is an introductory video for the Season (in which I forgot to mention half the stuff you’ve just read) …..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnjwqcP_-Qk&t=3s


    And here is a link to a helpful list of songs to get you started ….https://www.songfacts.com/category/s...y-in-the-title

    I’ll set up the Playlist when the entries start to come in.

    Meanwhile, please remember John’s exceedingly new(ish) and artful Season still has a whole day to run!

    Now I just have to figure out which one I'll play.

    All my knowledge of U2 comes from Wim anyway, so I'll have to wait and see what it is ... and, Lynda, please "mangle" away!

    Season 355. Submission 1. "Winter Song" - A Turtledrum Original (Copyright Linda Opyr, 2018)

    Val, a few days ago was the birthday of a dear friend who passed a few years back. Back in the day we'd hang out for hours, talking about anything and everything. This song is for her - Terry.

    The song refers to dawn and waking in the lyrics.

    I play tenor guitar here. Hope this is ok; I know it has been for many Seasons.

    Thank you for a terrific theme, Val, and hosting. Wishing you a beautiful week!

    I should have known pa would have done a brilliant version of this first thing (before I even checked the page -- d'oh!).

    Here's my take, not nearly as great as pa's, but I've got two more chances to do something different.

    Martin C1K • Famous by Kiwaya FS-1 <yippee!!> • Ohana CK-50WG concert (solid cedar top) • Ohana SK-35G solid mahogany soprano <yay!!> • Firefly maple concert banjolele <yee-haw!> • Flea koa soprano • Lanikai LU22CFM laminate flame maple concert • Islander MAT-4 spalted maple tenor • Makala MK-CE concert • Woodrow "Steelers" soprano <eyeroll>

    My gosh ... you've started already!!!! Thanks so much, Brian, Rob, Linda and Rick .... I'll put up the Playlist. It is a miserable, grey, wet day here - listening to your contributions will be a welcome diversion! And, thank you, Linda, for the kind words ... I intend to have FUN!
