    Post Season 432 - Solitude



    In these times with the Covid19 still around, and people still socially distancing though some countries are slowly opening up again, songs about being loneliness seems to be fitting. I might be overlooking something on the forum, but I can't seem to find this common theme for songs having been used for the seasons during my time on the seasons, correct me if I am wrong.

    So for this season I want songs about loneliness. They dont need specific words in the title as long as they are on topic, but those with lonely/alone/solitude etc. in the lyrics are a good place to start - there are lots of them.

    So, record new material and post it here in the 8 days between 00.00 Hawaii time 2020-05-24 and 2020-06-01. Maximum 1 song per day per uker.

    There will not be any prices this time, sorry.

    Because of the nature of the theme, cooperations are naturally strictly forbid... No, just kidding, they are encouraged .

    The usual rules apply, Ukulele must be prominent but you can overdub any instruments you like. Except for bagpipes. No bagpipes. Except if you really like bagpipes. In that case they are OK.

    Playlist is up!

    What a great idea, Mikel! Now, where did I put my bagpipes?

    Do you know the main difference between the Scottish bagpipe and the Irish bagpipe?

    With the Irish bagpipe you can drink a pint of Guinness whilst playing it.

    Those Irish are just genius

    Not all bagpipes are loud and brash. This lady is one of the best: Northumbrian Pipes.

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Hello, good Morning from Bavaria!
    I want to start the theme with an old Song from Petula Clark that will send hope to a sad theme. Here in Germany we try to get slowly back to normal life, shops, parks, restaurants are allowed to open. So we all can go .... „Downtown“. Have fun and stay healthy!
