Seeso, Janet Klein, James Hill and More

This week’s videos include Seeso, Janet Klein, James Hill and many more. Seeso – I Wish

GUGUG/The Ramones – Blitzkrieg Bop

GUGUG – Blitzkrieg Bop (Chords) I’ve had this one written up and been intending to post it since the Ukulele Video of the Year (I think it was my favourite, still can’t decide), but I finally got a kick up the arse when it was featured on Boing Boing yesterday. The chords to the song […]

SoKo – I Will Never Love You More

Soko – I Will Never Love You More (Chords)(PDF) When I mentioned Soko in my best of 2007 posts, I had no idea she was a ukulelist. Not long after that post, I Will Never Love You More cropped up on her MySpace. I decided right then I’d have to put up the chords, but […]

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole/Jason Castro – Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Chords)

Jason Castro/Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Click here for Chords) I never thought I’d be putting this song on the blog. But, when I realised even Simon Cowell isn’t too hard-hearted and cynical to be won over by a song’s charm, I reconsidered my position. Despite the obligatory American Idol warblings, I thought […]

Joan Jett – Bad Reputation (from Freaks and Geeks)

Joan Jett – Bad Reputation (Chords) It might just be me that remembers Freaks and Geeks, and I was mostly there for Linda Cardellini and the theme tune. As I understand it, the series didn’t even make it to the end in the US. But we got the whole thing here in the UK. Apparently, […]

Herman Dune – I Wish That I Could See You Soon

Herman Dune – I Wish That I Could See You Soon (Chords) Slap my ass and call me Sally, I should have done this song a looooong time ago. David Ivar Herman Dune (or Herman Düne for fans of unnecessary umlauts) is a ukulele hero and his Ya Ya album is an indie ukulele classic […]

Ayano Tsuji – Kaze Ni Naru (The Cat Returns Theme)

Ayano Tsuji – Kaze Ni Naru (The Cat Returns Theme) (Chords) Japanese singer, Ayano Tsuji (or Tsuji-Ayano as she seems to put it herself) has set herself up as the anti J-pop (the slick, fashionable pop music often sung in English) and playing the uke certainly sets her apart from the J-pop scene. Going against […]

Kate Nash – Foundations

Kate Nash – Foundations (Chords) There’s no doubt about the highlight of last night’s Brit Awards; “You remember Kenzie? His little face beaming?” The Brit School love-in was getting a bit much. And it’s great to see one band willing to goad the powers that be into cutting their speech short. Having said that, I […]

Antsy Pants/Bear Creek – Vampire

Antsy Pants – Vampire (Chords) I’m off to see Juno this week and even if it doesn’t live up to the hype it’ll be worth sticking with it to the end to hear Antsy Pant’s ukulele tune Vampire. Antsy Pants started life as a collaboration between anti-folker and Moldy Peach Kimya Dawson and twelve year […]

The Troggs/Jimi Hendrix – Wild Thing

Wild Thing (Chords) You wouldn’t believe how many people turn up at this blog after searching for ‘wild thing ukulele tabs‘ and leave disappointed. Well, no more. The song was written by Chip Taylor, later recorded by The Troggs but probably most famous in the guitar-burning Hendrix version. All three of those versions are in […]
