    Not my favorites, but I have a couple of Bob Denver songs in my repertoire and people seem to sing along with. Country Roads is probably the one that most people jump in on most often. I really don't like Bob Denver songs, but everyone else seems to. I play them a lot. What the heck is a mountain mama?
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    You must have watched "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," "F-Troop" or "Gilligan's Island" recently.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    You guys got me. I won't go back and change it, that would just add to the fun. Sorry Cornfield, for sending your thread off on a tangent so quickly.

    We knew who you were referring to RLLink, couldn't resist the opportunity to stir the pot.

    It might depend on the age group, but playing Beatles music usually works, especially the older stuff. And there’s no shortage of material to choose from. :-)

    Funny you should mention that, but I've heard that Country Roads and Stand By Me are two popular songs world-wide.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I'm not enamored with either of the Denver Cousin's song catalogs.
