Ukulelinks: Ukulele MP3s

Lots of ukulele MP3s: Pitchfork has a track from the tUnE-YaRdS (you can pick up the album on a ‘pay what you like’ basis here – it’s very good) and Dent May’s new video. A new instrumental from Bosco and Honey with Gensblue. New EP from Existential Hero (aka Steven Ray Morris of Foggy Ruins of Time). The Obama ukulele songs keep coming, this time from Jon Braman. Masters of Song Fu #3 features uke songs from Molly ‘sweetafton23′ Lewis, Mike Bordet and Jutze Schult (and a non-uke track from Garfunkel and Oates). If the thought of four years worth of Beatles covers on the ukulele doesn’t make you want to punch your ears into your brain, check out this blog.

Bette Midler strums out on Loose Women (Warning: may contain traces of Leslie Garrett). And, no, I wasn’t watching this live. And anyone who tells you that I was because Loose Women is my favourite show and I’ve been in the audience three times is lying.

Send your valentine a ukulele ecard and subtly hint they should be more loose with their wallet and less loose with their tongue.

Lily Allen’s The Fear on Uker Tabs.

Top notch ukulele poster.

Jake does an informercial for Analysis Plus cables (and he isn’t kidding about them being “pretty pricey”: Holy crap!).

Tripping Lily‘s Monica Rizzio officially uke crush #1

The DEA try to prosecute ukuleles on trumped up charges. “INTELLIGENCE ALERT – COCAINE IN A UKELELE” (about halfway down the page). May I refer the court to Photos 15 and 16 which clearly show a charango. Case dismissed.

Dr J does some interesting audio-nerd analysis on the Grammys. Apparently, Taylor Swift wins at microphones. She obviously knows a thing or two about sound quality; she’s a uker.

The always fiercely contested ukuleles and homemade flower-trousers round of Mr Tahiti.

    mr tahiti, AMAZING, make men who are supposed to be the most attractive in the region look like boobs!
    the beatles blog is just great too, but i have to say with regards to the video of jake, if you have $10000+ to spare and you spend it on a ukulele cable perhaps you need some perspective on life?

    cbf: I’m guessing Jake might have got a few $s off for doing that commercial.

    hehe probably true but i don’t see myself ever spending more than £50 on a single audio cable, personally

    Thanks for spreading the good word on the Master of Song Fu competition over at Quick Stop Entertainment! Right now, Molly Lewis is pwning the competition! There’s no other way to describe it. Her song is very clever. It’s hard to believe it’s only the third song she’s ever written!

    cbf: No, I wouldn’t spend more than that. But I’ll never be able to play like Jake either.

    Russ: Thanks. Glad to hear she’s doing well.

Got something to say?
