    Default Season 414: Coin of the Realm

    SEASON 414 — Coin of the Realm (It’s Money Songs That I Want)


    I had to look up to see if we’d done this one before. Turns out we had – Season 114, with Ginny hosting. But that’s a full 300 Seasons ago, so we’re gonna do it again.

    This week’s theme is money. It can be a song whose title includes a word for some type of coin or bill (“Penny Lane”, “No Quarter”, “All About the Benjamins”) or the word “money” or a synonym, or a song that prominently features such a word, or a song about money or the lack of it.

    Several of these songs have been pre-tested at my house. Around Eisley, I often sing money songs but substitute the word “bunny”. Most often, it’s the O’Jays: “Bunny bunny bunny bunny…BUUUNNY!” Or the Beatles:

    You never give me your bunny
    You only give me your pocket gophers
    And pulling loose change from the parlor sofa
    I break down...


    Rules:

    • The video must be a new video recorded for this Season.
    • The video must say that it is for the 414th Season of the Ukulele.
    • Multitracking is okay, overdubs are okay. But I'm most interested in hearing you perform a song on the ukulele.
    • Original songs are always welcome.
    • Collaborations are always welcome.
    • Collaborations on original songs? Hell, yeah!
    • Videos must be posted to this thread. But not before midnight tonight, Hawaiian time. (And remember, Season 413 still has a day to go.)
    • The Season lasts for 8 days, and ends at midnight Hawaiian time on Sunday night, January 26.
    NO MORE THAN THREE VIDEOS! I’m usually good at promptly getting songs onto the playlist, but the last couple of times I’ve hosted I did a crap job of commenting on the videos. I’m hoping to do better this time. We’ll see…
    • My plan at the moment is to give prizes to three winners who will be chosen randomly. I usually give t-shirts as prizes.


    PLAYLIST


    Here's a recycled video to get things going.


    A few years ago, I was at an open mic where a young magician did a trick that he said involved “a card, a coin, a dollar and a dream.” I said to my friends that that sounded like it should be a song. They told me to go write it, and to play it at the next month’s open mic. So I did.

    That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
    Get your bunnies for nothing and your chicks for free


    Sounds like a pretty good Easter party
