    One of the most affirmative songs ever written is surely the Beatles' "All You Need is Love"... That has certainly proved the case for my sanity in the last three decades.

    Anyway, this song was inspired by a FAWM Skirmish. The prompt was the word "Cool" - I then had an hour to write the song, record it and then upload it.

    I had been waiting for the inspiration to write a thank you song to my darling Carmen for 34 years of companionship and love. Ours is no longer a fiery hot passionate love affair it is "just cool" - but I reckon they're the best relationships for ensuring longevity (of ourselves and the relationship ).

    So, I hope this private love story echoes with enough of you out there to have this classified as a more universal affirmative or positive song.

    No explanation. This is just one of the more wholesome songs I know.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Ahoy there
    Since I am, like so many others, working from home these days I seem to have more time than normally to play the uke.
    Here is my rendition of 'Hang me, oh hang me' by Dave Van Ronk, recorded in 1962.

    Hope everyone is doing well. This is my first collaboration with Chelle Hoch! We met through the forum/youtube comments sections and both expressed interest in doing something together. She recently wrote this fine song, and i'm very happy to be able to add my bits. Because we work on different computer formats, we're working out the challenges of sharing large files that she can access, open and move around on her iPad. So, I'm posting this one up first on my channel and posting here. Cheers to everyone, kev ~

    Here's an uplifting song that 55 earlier Seasonistas participated in.

    My contribution this week:



    Due to the Social Distancing, my barber is closed and have more than a few stubbles...
    OK, perhaps I didn't shave beacouse I worm from home, whatever.

    By the way, I just tried ShotCut video editor again, because I bought a laptop that doesn't have MovieMaker.
    Next week I edit the video on my desktop again. I had to make the video and audio out of sync in the editor for it to be reasonably in sync in the rendered video.
    I have to find some other software.

    When I was looking for inspiration for Are You Sleeping I came across a version that Val did a little while back for one of Randy's seasons, which made me think of Randy, which made me remember how much joy Randy's playing and song writing brought to me. So here is my take on a Randy McSorley original...

    Being at home more these days is leading to more music This song has sometimes been associated with the wall coming down between East and West Germany. I've always enjoyed it's simplicity and message. Thankful Jon had the time and interest to add his magic ~
