Top Ten Fan Favourites! (So Far)
Well, I'm just over half way through these Ukulele videos! I honestly didn't think I'd get this far, in general, I'm a really lazy man. But I'm really enjoying it, and apparently, so are you! I asked around and compiled some of the fan favourites. There were a lot of ties, so in those cases I just went ahead and put them in an arbitrary order (remember that laziness thing I mentioned earlier?). Here we go! Let me know if you agree with everyone else!
- "Fish And Bird" by Tom Waits
Featuring the wonderful Sara Ciantar on Accordion, this is a nice little Tom Waits tune we performed for week 6
- "If I Could Only Win Your Love" by the Louvin Brothers
This one is a lot of fun, we really did this last minute out in the cold in front of Habits Bistro! the first of 3 appearances by Melissa Dalton! Week 13
- "Love Song" by The Cure
A song for Valentines day! Week 5 with the Cure!
- "Make You Feel My Love" by Bob Dylan
Week 21 was the end of my Bob Dylan tribute month. I decided to cover this beautiful little song from "Time Out of Mind".
- "Crying" by Roy Orbison
For some reason I thought I'd start this whole project off with this Roy Orbison song. A tough one on the pipes, hopefully my voice has improved a bit.
- "Happiness is a Warm Gun" by The Beatles
I'd been hoping to get together with Olenka for a while, I finally cornered her in the back room of the Rivoli and recorded this for week 25!
- "Mushaboom" by Feist
Inspired by the Arts and Crafts X show earlier this summer, I tackled this Feist tune!
- "Everybody Wants to Rule The World" by Tears for Fears
Week 15, this is one of my favorites to play, I was surprised how adaptable this was to the Ukulele! I also fell in love with Tears for Fears after this.
- "Teach Your Children" by Crosby Stills Nash and Young
One of my favourites as well! Getting together with Graydon and Laura was amazing. We ran this a couple times, and we have a wonderful outtake from this session that I will have to put up soon! It's also the only hug recorded... so far.
- "Mr. Tambourine Man" by Bob Dylan
This was a really great session. Mellisa made her second appearance, and this time we added Lara Martin to the mix! Love these girls, their voices are perfect!!
