The UkuLady’s hilarious songs are a regular highlight of YouTube’s stream of uke videos but it turns out I was familiar with her work long before YouTube was a glint in geek’s eye. She earns a crust as a voice-over artist and is responsible for the heavily bleeding nurse Lisa Garland in Silent Hill and the babbling teenage girl in The Sims 2. But on to more important matters.
I love these songs so much I couldn’t help but work out a bunch of them. Transcribing these songs was made considerably more difficult as I broke down laughing at regular intervals. So if I’ve got something wrong, that’s why.
These songs are played in d-tuning (aDF#B), so if you’re a C-er tune up to play the chords as written or ignore my chord diagrams and play your regular chord shapes.
UkuLady – Oops! (Chordsies)
The great thing about this song is that it becomes topical every time Britney has another breakdown. It’ll never get old.
UkuLady – Poor Lindsay Uke (Chordsies)
Part of the Poor Starlet triptych and my favourite UkuLady song. It reminds me of the old folk song John Henry but instead of a guy dying attempting to keep up with a steam hammer, it’s Lindsay Lohan becoming broke and doing irrevocable damage to her lady’s garden attempting to keep up with Paris Hilton.
UkuLady – Another Love Song (Chordsies)
I enjoy the non-comedy numbers she does. This one is really sweet.
UkuLady – Different Strokes (Chordsies)
A kick ass song from the 80’s.
