    Default Season 447 - Like a Virgin

    Welcome to Season 447 - Like a Virgin



    This is my first season hosting, and the excitement and anticipation is wonderful!

    I want to share that feeling with all of you, so the theme this week is to capture that shiny and new feeling by celebrating our first times - either by doing something new for the first time or by revisiting your first time in the Seasons.

    The first category is to bring something with a new kick:

    • If you're new to the Seasons then you've got this nailed!
    • If you're an old hand then add in something new: bring an instrumental, or an original, or your own arrangement, or parody lyrics, or multi-track, or single-track, or collaborate, or collaborate with somebone new, or add percussion, or bass, or a puppet, or electric effects, or a new style, or.... whatever. Be creative!


    The second category is to revist your first Season. You're still here, so it must have been good!You can rerecord your first song if you like, or can bring anything else that would have fit in then.

    The third category is to write a new original for the season. 'Cause they're always fun!

    If you aren't revisiting your first season please bring songs about firsts times, newness, revitalization, and wonder.

    Please let us know what's new and how your entry fits the season!

    Song limit: 1 song per day
    Season starts Sunday 6 September, 00:01AM Hawaii time (UTC-10) until Sunday 13 September, 11:59PM Hawaii time
    Entries should be new for the season and prominently feature your ukulele!
    Please mention in the video that it's for season 447

    Prizes! There will be prizes!
    I have custom ukulele name badges for the winners in the following categories:

    • Welcome to the Seasons - a first time Seasonista!
    • Shiny and New - brought something new to your repetoire
    • Blast from the Past - revisited your first season
    • I've never heard that before! - brought an original
    • Last of the First - posted on the last day of the Season


    Winners to be determined by hat from eligible entries.

    While you're thinking of new things to do, don't forget to finish off Ryan's Season 446 - Rock & Metal - with a bang!

    Season 447 - Like a Virgin Playlist

    Happy playing!

    Thanks! I'm taking Host's Prerogative to jump the gun and post the title track. I'm on Pacific time and hope to be asleep when we tick over midnight in Hawaii. I'll catch up on things in the morning.



    Two interesting coincidences with this theme:

    1. While I was preparing it this week Scary Pockets posted a (uke-free) funk cover of Like a Virgin. That one's worth a listen to!
    2. I seem to be drawing significantly more sex-channel spam with this one than I have with others. Ugh. I've deleted about half a dozen comments so far and I hope now that the initial rush has passed they won't come back. This may not be completely coincidental. Apologies if the theme name causes problems.

    This is almost exactly what I would have used as the theme if I hosted a season, but I don't really have the time to commit to hosting.

    I think we should post the original version as well as the new version of our first season.
    How many of us know what the song is without having to look it up?
