    Hello, Steve ... you hero, you! This is a great theme for the week, Andy .... Steve's splendid achievement deserves to be celebrated! I chose to do this song basically because I have a cold at the moment, and, therefore, even less voice than usual, and I thought it would be not too difficult to sing. It might be totally incomprehensible to all of you on the other side of the "Pond". At the end of the 1950s, Britain was just about beginning to recover from the after-effects of the War and life was changing, with the beginnings of a youth culture. The images that I used are mainly from a 1950s Soho, a part of London, which at the time, had a reputation for being a denizen of low-life, although it was probably at the forefront of the new coffee bar culture.

    The playlist is up and I have added the link to the OP. We’re off to an excellent start, thank you all.

    I’ve also adjusted the rules slightly... For those who are more comfortable spending a few days working something up before they press record, Saturday will be a free day where any song can be submitted, even if it has already been played. Please do make a good faith effort though to play a song that hasn’t been played.

    I wanted to do one outside since the weather is nice and it's supposed to get more blustery later in the week. It was still quite windy today, and cars were going by, and Domino got excited digging for a gopher and I forgot some of the lyrics, so this was the best take I could get.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    The first ‘proper’ gig I went to was Tears For Fears at the Winter Gardens in Margate in 1983. They’d just hit the big time with this song, which reached number 3 on the UK chart. It was more recently covered by Gary Jules, who took it to the top spot nearly 20 years after the original was released.

    I did this in one take - I think that’s a first!

    Here's a great one for any uke jam. A traditional song -- possibly from a sea shanty, possibly a field hand song from the post-Civil War American South. Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, Lil' Rev and many others have done it and Steve done it too (sorry ...)

    This is my all time favorite John Prine song, and I think it's Steve's favorite too. I did this one awhile back, but am always up for trying it again. It's not an easy one to pull off for me.

    Steve did this punk classic from the Buzzcocks for Season 320. Always tempting to go hell for leather when doing a punk song, but I reined it in a bit for this one. I was going to do this one for Del’s Rhythmn Stick Season, hence the noise of me slapping my bare feet (spare feet as my daughter used to call feet without shoes and socks) on the floor. Didn’t get round to it, but thankfully it was on Steve’s list. What a great year of music you’ve bought us Steve. This is also, naturally, a tribute to the wonderful Pete Shelley. Incidentally, the uke is a Kala tenor I bought off of fleabay after just after Christmas, and the Tee is my prize from Uke4ia recent Season , Thanks Jim.
