    This song was in my head at work today, cause I had heard it a week or so ago, so I did a quick one taker on it when I got home. Lots of folks recorded this, but Bobby Bare had the most famous version.

    This is a track from Erasure’s first album Wonderland, released in 1986.

    A special tribute to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. A friend of mine from my ukulele group shared a story about how he was in Paris as a youth in 1968. He also shared this song.

    Not an entry, but I find this is also an appropriate video for this week's theme. Enjoy the video.

    Thanks for hosting this week Trent. It's a very cool and original theme! I am bringing an original here, and I am very thrilled to have Sia Joo Hiang collaborating with me using original artwork that she created to make this video clip! The theme is a bit dark on the surface, but I did find the creative process very enlightening. Though the the first half of the composition is somewhat structured the spoken word and chorus parts were very improvisational ~

    Hello again, Trent! I have absolutely no idea whether this works or not; I was inspired by one of a number of monologues I found on YT by a talented American actress, Nina Millin, entitled "The Beyoncelogues". It would appear that the narratives of Beyonce's songs lend themselves to monologue form. Well, anyway, this is an attempt at monologue plus ukulele ... erm!

    I guess the smart thing would to take a pop song with really trivial lyrics, like "baby, baby" or " Rah rah ooh-lala" and recite them.

    But I didn't do that.

    I hope this counts.
    Leonard Cohen is almost talking through first half of the verses, and I attempt to be even more in talking mode.
    Perhaps it is still singing. Well, I tried.

    Default Season 374 - I Will Always Love You

    Hi everyone! I came back for a second Season, hoping to make this a weekly habit! This one really challenged me, but here’s my rendition of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”. I am playing on a 6 string Kala tenor ukulele here (C and A strings are octaves).
