    This is a song by the '70s progressive rock band Camel that I didn't finish learning in time for Val's hands Season (407).

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    I had a few more ideas for last Season, here's one from Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros' 1999 album Rock Art and the X-Ray Style.

    My videos are here.

    The future is unwritten.

    Beatles cover - I'm only sleeping - it was intended to be part of the SotU 389. YorkSteve - Dream On - songs about Dreams and or Nightmares, but I ran out of time. Even this one i was struggling to get as far as I did.

    i tried some reverse lead ukulele with no other effects except on backup vocals.

    I will promise not to do more Beatles stuff for awhile :-)

    Thank you to Cameron R for helping with making this cover.

    This is a Blitzen Trapper cover. This would have fit the theme for YorkSteve's Season 371 (songs whose titles start with "E"), or for my own Season 363 (Into the Void - one of the options was songs from Blitzen Trapper's "Destroyer of the Void" album).

    Hello Rick, sorry to hear about your accident, hope you're well on the mend now.
    This one would have fitted Joko's season of the nines by virtue of Bessie Smith's version in 1929.

    Default SOTU 411: I SANG TO HER - by Dennis Danner

    This really doesn't meet your guidelines regarding originals, Rick, but I feel like my participation in the Seasons has been nothing but, "Missed Opportunities, Second Chances, and Do-Overs," for over a year. Hope that changes with the New Year!

    This is the most recent song I wrote, and I quickly recorded it with me solo to use as a base track for adding in additional tracks from others in our small band, "Four Random Notes."

    Hope to add in some: percussion (shakers & djembe) from Evelyn in addition to her harmonica on the break (unless I can find a violinist to lay down the break and some fills - anyone interested?) . And, Marylou and Evelyn will add some harmony vocals, along with some picking on a concert ukulele with Dave contributing on the U-bass line.

    Feel free to send it to the Island, or not include it on the play list, but it feels good to finally be posting something to a Season again. It's a bit on the sad side, but I hope you enjoy my song about the last night I shared with my mother:

    Just an old dog trying to learn new tricks . . .

    Here is a song that would have fit 410 (it’s from 1999), 400 (it’s about a Genie), and maybe 366? (she was a Mouseketeer)!

    The air here is kind of apocalyptic, so forgive my wheezing this week… month…
