I play the ukulele and I want to learn some other songs. I like learning a lot of songs that are very unusual for ukulele players (Stairway to Heaven, Short Skirt Long Jacket, Never Gonna Give You Up, etc). I'm looking for something that's popular now (I don't listen to the radio as a general rule) and mostly electronic to play. Any ideas?

"Thrift Shop" is down from it's peak I think, but I bet it will be popular with an audience for a long time. Not sure if the sax(?) riff in it can translate well to the ukelele.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Can't help you with this...(my 15 year old daughter could, though - she also plays the ukulele.)

Have you discovered The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain?

Yeah, they're great. I missed their concert in Ogden by one day. I hate when that happens, and it happens to happen a lot.

And maybe more action over there.

Have you discovered GUGUG on YouTube? It's not all contemporary, but they cover a bunch of stuff. You could do some of what they do.

This is a favorite of mine.



They also like the Ramones.

I've seen him twice live. He actually is way better now than he was then.

James Hill is also amazing.
