Amanda Palmer, Broken Records: UkeTube

Arrrrrgh. Some serious interweb connection problems for me at the moment. I’ve got a few posts lined up, but if you’re expecting a message from me, you may have to wait a while.

Anyhoo, this week’s videos include Amanda Palmer covering another Radiohead song on the uke. I would have included the Jack and Meg of the ukulele Versi-o-rama doing thieir version of Tonight You Belong to Me were it not for Dailymotion issues – the singing and ukeing might not be the best around, but the video more than makes up for it.

Amanda Palmer – Fake Plastic Trees

Broken Records – Ukulele Song

ventriclemouse – MyPal2

Phredd – Jelly Man Kelly

Jake Wildwood – I Will Follow

sweetafton23 – Political Science

Ukulelezaza – Somewhere My Love

owlphanumeric – Stripes

Peter Delaney – My Eyes Are Blessed

Tony Leonard – Tea For Two

Jodi Matthews – Vacation

Rita Braga and Chris Carlone – Moon River

    I agree with Phredd, the Broken Records are great, I always like bands that have a multitude of different instruments!
    I also enjoyed Peter Delaney’s song as well.
    Thanks for filtering out the good stuff!

    Jason: Definitely. I don’t understand why so few bands think outside the bass, drums, guitar set up.

    That Broken Records song is beautiful!
    More please! They should be huge!

    BonniePrinceLily: You’re right, they certainly should be. It looks like the uke isn’t a regular part of their set up, but there’s plenty more on their MySpace.

Got something to say?
