    Default Season 364 - In Someone Else's Shoes

    Welcome to Season 364!

    This Season's theme is "In Someone Else's Shoes". Let's see the world from somebody else's perspective!


    Play us songs from the point of view of another human being, an inanimate object, an animal, a plant, or...
    You may want to choose a different era, continent or galaxy, or something less exotic like what your neighbor or spouse thinks today (a very difficult topic! ).

    The challenge is to put yourself in someone else's position and perhaps to try to understand what that "someone" sees or tells.

    Original songs, instrumentals and collaborations are very welcome.

    It would be great to see some new Seasonistas joining in, as well as the familiar Seasonistas whom we haven't seen lately, bringing a song again.

    Song limit: One song per day.

    - Season starts Sunday, February 3rd at 00:01 Hawaii time, and ends Sunday, February 10th at 12 PM Hawaii time.
    - Please mention in the video that it's for Season 364.
    - Multi tracking and other instruments are fine, but ukulele should be the main instrument.

    Prizes: Shoelaces with music notes and, erm, a guitar-lele.

    I'll put my comments on your YouTube videos and don't duplicate them here. If you like the other Seasonistas' videos, please let them know by commenting.

    And please remember that Jim's fine "Into the Void" Season has still a day to go.

    Have fun! Can't wait to see whose shoes you'll be wearing.

    I just remembered one song that fits, but it is really inappropriate...
    Lets hope I get a better idea.

    Everything is fine right now.
    When everybody seems to be scrambling around for crumbs of comfort.
    Sometimes we should be happy that somebody somewhere is enjoying life.
    and wouldn't it be so fine to step into their shoes for a moment and find
    a similar solace.

    Submission 1. “At The Wave Mouth” (Aig Beul nan Tonn) A folksong from the Hebrides. (Copyright 2001 by Hal Leonard Corporation).


    Thank you very much for your hosting and fine theme, Ylle.


    This is a very, very old song. Its words are spoken by someone who encounters what cannot be explained. The speaker’s world is far different that the one we know.

    I could not find a recording of this song anywhere. I hope I’ve done the song justice.

    The lyrics, which speak so mysteriously and beautifully of the speaker’s wonder, are provided below. The chords I’ve used are: Am, Em, Am, Em, F, G, Em, Am.

    Tenor ukulele, soprano banjolele used here.


    And who may the strange one be,
    Who croons beside the wave mouth
    Like sea wrack brown and beauteous,
    Who may yon strange one be?

    Nor merle she nor mavis she,
    St. Bride’s bird she nor sea mew,
    Nor seal from far away linns,
    Nor kyle sea maiden she!

    And who may the strange one be,
    Who croons beside the wave mouth?
    Like sea wrack brown and beauteous,
    Who may yon strange one be?

    Great theme, Ylle! Here’s one from the point of few of an orangutan who wants to be in someone else’s shoes himself.

    When I have done this Kirsty MacColl song in the past, I have changed the lyrics to make it a "man" song. But for this week, here I am being a tired housewife.
