Ukelilli: Saturday UkeTube

Doctor Who? is one of those things everyone loves and I don’t see the appeal of at all. The theme tune, on the other hand, I do love. And this week’s UkeTube is bookended by two takes on it – one from Ukelilli and one from WS64.

Also this week Craig Robertson, Agathe, Arborea and strictly no Christmas songs.


Ukelilli – Doctor Who?

You can buy the MP3 on her BandCamp.

Craig Robertson – A Better Liar

Ukulollo – Ravel’s Bolero

Arborea – Beirut

Agathe – Sister Kate

The Brockways – Corner Grocery Store

WS64 – Doctor Who Theme

    “strictly no Christmas songs”- One Christmas a recording of Ravel’s “Bolero” was the best gift I received. So to me, that’s been a Christmas song ever since.

    Agathe is the cutest little thing. ^_^ Grass Shack is another lovely song performed by her.

    What a great uketube, tough to pick a favourite from that lot, there wasn’t one that I didn’t like.

    Next week you should have a uketube with only Christmas songs to balance things out.

    Boyo. If Ukulollo doesn’t get some kind of prize in the Bushman thingumbob there’s something seriously amiss. Good playing and the vid was one of the best “matte vids” I’ve seen on YouToob.

    Is he a videographer by trade?

    …Loved Craigs song, Fabulous…loved Arborea…Bravo Ukulolio, what a piece of work, even got a sopranino in there…Do I need a sopranino? probebly not, but I still want one!…

    sopraninos are great, everyone needs one – go forth and purchase!

    Acilius: A very merry bolero to you.

    Byjimini: I love the stuff she does with Fine.

    J-Hob: Yep, that’s exactly what I’m planning on doing.

    Hobbit: I think my featuring of him might have killed his chances.

    Nick: I don’t have a sopranino either – quite tempted though.

    Ahh woodshed – be a god and hit us up with a Doc Who tab!

    Doctor Who is the best. David Tennant is pretty much my favourite person. Both Doctor-themed videos were pretty great. First one was damn catchy. Well spotted.

    HH: Yes, Lorenzo works as a cameraman. It was him that filmed this year’s Italian Festival. It is an incredible documentary. He is very talented and extremely thorough.

    You would be god squared if you were to knock up a Doctor Who theme tab. WS64′s rendition is truly badass. I have wanted to work up an arrangement myself for awhile. I realise now it would never be as good as WS64′s…

Got something to say?
