    Here's a Tom Waits song. There are four (count 'em! Four!) Sundays in this song. It's from the 2006 collection of rarities and oddities "Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards". This one is a bawler.



    Although Orphans has a strange mix of previously unreleased things, things that didn't make it onto other albums, or things that were a bit too odd even for Tom Waits, it does include quite a few of my favourites. This particular one, I learned today, was originally used in a 1984 film "Streetwise", about the lives of homeless youths on the streets of Seattle.

    Oh yes, before I go: 2 is the OEPN

    SO I was searching searching for a second song for the week and I stumbled onto this. At first, I thought the name of the band was "Big Wednesday", and even though I didn't remember what the rules said about bands with days of the week in their names (I can't even think of any), I thought for sure they'd qualify.... Turns out "Big Wednesday" is a film from the late 70's that I've never seen - it was supposed to be a blockbuster surfing movie... and this song about a car in the sea was on the soundtrack.... It's just a simple DDGA progression, but I immediately loved it. Recorded for the film by "The Farm"..

    I'm sort of the anti-BEVOMU here - all face, no uke. TO fill some of the space, I chose clips from today, 3 June, in two year increments going backwards...

    Cheers for hosting this one Del boy. I'm into week five of a shoulder fracture, got a stinking cold, can't drive, can't even hold a piece of bread in place to butter it but yesterday I discovered if I keep my left shoulder/upper arm firmly tucked in I can manage most chords up to a certain distance up the neck on the small humble soprano hoorah. I give you an abbreviated version of Sunday Girl (I skipped the French bit mainly because I skipped school a lot and it wouldn't sound pretty)

    Hello again, Del! A song which mentions every day of the week ...

    "The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place" George Bernard Shaw

    I have wrongly said in the title this video is for 484 - but it was written today for 485... I swear!

    As we are dealing with the days of the week, I thought I'd offer you all a lesson in learning the names of said days in Catalan in the chorus. Meanwhile, the verses deal with the origins of the days and also outline some common traditional beliefs about the days. Friday is particularly full of warnings and prohibitions, all of which I couldn't fit into such a short song.

    I hope you enjoy (and learn from)

    SOTU 485 "Sunday Blues" - Marshall Crenshaw (2009). Easy song choice for me with all the rain we've been getting in Texas of late, but it took me a while to figure out the chords on this. Thanks to Liz Brinker for helping me out. It's in the original key of D, which works great for Marshall, but was a bit challenging for me. My appreciation for the original is deepened even more now that I've given it a shot. His vocal phrasing and the track production are really great. I played a Kanile'a Koa K-2 STE (super tenor) uke with Low G tuning.
