    Hi Alan. Great rendition with lovely strumming and singing. For some reason your settings on the video is set as ‘made for kids’ on youtube (their new settings system) so I can’t comment directly on your video nor can I add it to the playlist. Maybe if you go into your youtube editor and click on ‘Not made for kids’ then it should be possible to get it on the playlist.

    Cheers

    Another Tin Pan Alley piece that later became a standard. I sing this sometimes at the nursing home in an extended version that also features my friend Carroll Sammons playing some solos on his electric guitar.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Can someone check if this has happened to mine? I can't work out where to change it either.

    Thanks to Rex, I was not entirely unfamiliar with Jazz Chords. Though I had to seek high and low to find the "lesson" he kindly gave me on them some years back. Anyway, after refamiliarising myself with some standard jazz chords for the uke. I worked on this chord sequence a few days back. But I just couldn't get inspired to write any lyrics for it. I thought it might work as an over exaggerated love song in classic 30s style. But the muse had other ideas and this morning gifted me this "typical Berni" social commentary. Inspired no doubt by a walk I took yesterday on which I saw an obviously itinerant busker... as well as some Senegalese guys trying to sell fake Nike & Reebok sneakers and reproductions of brand name ladys' handbags (probably made in the same factory that produces the ones that would cost €200 + in the high street stores.) The last verse drew on a memory of the lines of young Eastern European girls strung out along a local road that traverses the mountains.

    Anyway, I hope these jazzy chords are enough to justify the inclusion of this song in the Season. Just imagine Ray Noble and Al Bowly doing a protest song and it'll be fine

    It was hard to find, but in the settings there is an audience setting. Successfully changed.

    A lot of good music and the playlist has now been updated. I will continue to comment on each individual video tonight. Keep them coming...
