    Default Season 398 - Ooh La La



    Hello all! This week is going to be dedicated to what I am going to call verbal punctuation.

    The premise is simple. Whenever my mum and I are on a road trip, or playing cards over a brew, there will be music on, which we will sing along with. The best singing comes from the songs that have got an "oooh", or an "oh", or "la" or "dadada" or something of that ilk. My mum is not a fantastic singer, must be where I get it from, and she'll always overegg the falsetto for comedic effect.

    So basically what I want from you fine people this week is a song with some singing in the lyrics that aren't really words, just a way to use your voice as an instrument. Think 500 Miles, think the ending to Dont You Forget About Me, something that you can just belt out. Give me some yeahs, even tack a baby on the end of it if your name is spelt with a y.

    Originals welcome as long as they are more imaginative than my effort above. Better yet give me some actual verses for that song.

    I'm gonna say scatting doesn't count in this instance.

    Normal rules apply. Start is midnight Hawaii time which everyone knows when is, finishes midnight Sunday next week,

    1 song per day unless you reaaaaaaally got something good to give me. This may be lifted as I'm actually off work most of the week.

    Ukulele front centre and the main part of the performance, vocals aside obviously. Multi tracking is fine but remember this is a uke forum.

    If you cant sing, great. This stuff is made for singing as loudly and as horribly as you can muster.

    (Bonus points if you can annoy your offspring like I've done. Two weeks at school and hes already a surly teenager)

    And dont forget Val is still nobly flying the flag on Season 397 for another day and a half ish.

    Playlist will be added when there is stuff to put on it.


    OOOOOOOOH YEAH!

    PLAYLIST

    I'm not sure my voice IS an instrument ... but great idea, Ryan!

    It was on Ryan's music of the 90's season that Ralf posted this gem. Forgive me! I had to re-post it to this thread so we could all get a chance to witness the awesome power of Ohh La La!

    Quite aside from this being one of my favourite videos from that week, this is EXACTLY what I'm after.

    Any Australian over a certain age will know "ooh mow ma mow mow, ooh mow ma mow mow" as the refrain from the 1969 hit "The Real Thing". A psychedelic goodie from Russell Morris.It was deservedly huge.Nonsense existential lyrics but what a production and catchy hooks.Check out the original if interested.My cover doesn't do it justice. Thanks Ryan!
