    There where actually very little U2 songs recorded in the seventies, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...recorded_by_U2

    Only the first singles Boy/Girl, Out of Control and Stories for Boys.

    They really got it going in the 80's

    This one is from 1979. Written by Mike Batt for the soundtrack of the animated film Watership Down and performed by Art Garfunkel.

    Ok, this one doesn't really follow the rules... True, it was recorded originally in the 70's, but I did the video today at a Farmer's Market, loaded it to YouTube, then realized I'd need to redo the whole thing to include a statement about being done for Season 386...

    .

    ...and that would be like work.

    So here it is, use it or not. Dance, Dance, Dance, originally recorded by the Steve Miller Band.

    Donaldson Kumalae-style soprano * Magic Fluke Timber Bass * Ohana CK450QEL * Ohana CK-65D * Ken Timms Soprano
    Moku MS-90S * Waterman * National Triolian Reso * Bugsgear Aqualele * Donaldson Concert
    Rosewood Vita Uke * Waverly Street #38 * Ko'Aloha Sceptre Tenor * Ohana Vita Uke
    Fluke FireFly * Epiphone Les Paul Ukulele * Republic Concert * Fluke Tenor M22
    Kala KA-KTG-CT * Cordoba 20TM * 1950s Harmony soprano *1920s Stella banjo uke

    Am I done?

    This song was covered a lot in the early 70's. The biggest version in the USA was by Mac Davis, but I always liked the Doug Kershaw version. Been wanting to try this one for awhile. Sadly Keith, it took me a few takes, I messed up the solo a few times.

    Here's some Bowie that is way out side my vocal range.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    One of those three U2 songs from the 70's is called Stories for Boys, here is my take on it:
