    Default Season 422 Heal the World

    There are many things to be feeling down about right now in the world. The intent of this season is to bring some positivity into it. Songs should have the intent of trying to make the world a better place through music in the folk and punk folk genres(or songs adapted to these genres). Since the uke is a folk instrument, pretty much anything goes as long as it is in the week's theme(even weakly) of changing the world with out music. The inspiration for this week comes from the heroic band led by Wallace Hartley that played on the Titanic to help soothe the panic of everyone on board.

    Originals and covers are all welcome. There is no song limit. I will pick out a short list at the end, but we will all be winners this time. The reward for the season is that I will be donating a good part of my book collection to a local charity. Entries will start at the beginning of March 15th Hawaiian time and finish at the end of the day on March 22nd Hawaiian time. Be sure to comment on as many other contributions as you can and help build up our community. I will amend this if I have forgotten any necessary rules.

    Now go fight the edgelord trolls of the world with our goodwill!

    Edit due to forgetting to include some things: The inspiration for this week comes from the heroic band led by Wallace Hartley that played on the Titanic to help soothe the panic of everyone on board.

    In the same vein as Turn Turn Turn and The Circle Game, here is a beauty from Harry Nilsson from his album/fable, The Point!
