I guess I can't really say love is a battlefield for me (personally) anymore cause I just booked my tickets for my honeymoon to Mexico! Ah yeah! Love is an all inclusive resort!

I love this song so much, sorry, not the Whitney version, the Dolly Parton version. I couldn't bring myself to do the talking part.

#172 - 3 Rounds and a Sound

Song - 3 Rounds and a Sound

We love this song, but it was scary for us to do because Emma knows the guys from this band! Hopefully they don't curse us for ruining their song!

#171 - Can't Help Falling in Love

Song - Can't Help Falling in Love
Artist - Elvis Presley

This song never gets old, NEVER! Also, I'm surprised this is the first Elvis song I've done, looks like I need to get on that!

#170 - 9 to 5

Song - 9 to 5
Artist - Dolly Parton

The funny thing about this song is that after so many years of working evenings, weekends, attending school and work, or just having a wacky schedule in general I really hope I have a 9 to 5 job soon!

...if I had starting playing the ukulele at age 1 I could be this good by the time I'm 80.

#166 - Inside of You

*WARNING - while today's video might not be explicit, it is a little dirty*

Song - Inside of You
Artist - Infant Sorrow

Why didn't I think to do this song yesterday?? So Valentine's day appropriate!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Valentines day post!

I really wanted to do "At Last" but I couldn't quite nail it, and if you can't nail that song there is no point in doing it. So here is the second cutest thing I could find. I have done this song before but I love the video for it and thought I should share it with y'all.

Hope you get to snuggle with your favorite today!

#162 - This Love

Song - This Love
Artist - Maroon 5

Sorry for doing a Maroon 5, I have to say that some of their songs I really like. I'm sure that makes me lose a few points a musician or something, I care not! Also sorry that I didn't know how to end it so I just kind of stopped.

#161 - If I Needed You

Song - If I Needed You
Artist - Townes Van Zandt

Big thanks to Larry for teaching us this one at the cabin!

No voice = no song!

Got just enough of a cold that my voice is kind of shot! I feel ok and tried to do a song, but my voice is pretty much gone, sorry!

#160 - Avocado

Song - Avocado (Desperado)
Artist - Weird Al Yankovic
Theme - Your favorite food

I apologize for doing a Weird Al song, but I REALLY wanted to do a song about avocados for my favorite food today and I really didn't want to sing a Jason Mraz song. Also I couldn't find the tab for his song.

Also I should never do videos without make up, HA!

#159 - Nine Million Bicycles

Song - Nine Million Bicycles
Artist - Katie Melua
Theme - A bicycle/velocipede

I wanted to work a different angle for the theme today. I don't think I have the chops to do "Bicycle Races" solo and I have already done "Brand New Key" so I had to look for something new to do for the bicycle theme. This was a song I found by searching "songs about bicycles" and I really like it!

#158 - Tonight You Belong to Me - Live!

Song - Tonight You Belong to Me
Artist - Billy Rose and Lee David

Here is the video from last night! I am super nervous so you can actually hear the kazoo wobble a little bit while I am trying to play it.

Here is the interview as well if you are interested. Also very awkward and nervous on my part but Alex Falcone was amazing. (there's a little shout out to you in there uncle Bruce!)

#157 - You Ain't Going Nowhere

Song - You Ain't Going Nowhere
Artist - Bob Dylan
Theme - A piece of furniture

I LOVE this song. Great to sing, fun to play, all around awesome. Sorry my head is chopped off in the video though, I'm not sure how that happened I record the same way EVERYDAY so you think I would have the hang of it by now.

Saturday, February 4, 2012

My first live appearance!

I just finished up being a guest on Late Night Action with with Alex Falcone at the Action Adventure Theater! I was terrified to do it but it was a blast! Felix was kind enough to film the interview and song so we will work on editing it and getting up by tomorrow.

#156 - Tip Toe Through the Tulips

Song - Tip Toe Through the Tulips
Artist - Al Dubin (lyrics) and Joe Burke (music)
Theme - A Flowering Plant

I have no idea what's happening on the bridge of this song, so I made it up :)

#155 - Baby Beluga

Song - Baby Beluga
Artist - Raffi

I thought I was going out on a limb to ask my sister in law Carrie if she would do a song with me on the blog (I realize not everyone is as big a ham as I am and would rather not be all over the internet singing). I was so excited that she not only wanted to do it, but offered up a Raffi song! How is it possible that I haven't done a Raffi song yet? Without discussing it we delegated my brother to play guitar and my Dad happened to stop by on his way home and hook up the bass so he could play along too. And voila! That's how you make a family band! Lucy helped too, I suppose.

Here'e a bonus video of Lucy being adorable.

This is actually yesterdays video but I was out visiting family and couldn't post it, sorry!

#154 - That's Not My Name

Song - That's Not My Name
Artist - The Ting Tings
Today's Theme - My Name

My friend Justa started a group with the intention of inspiring art every day. This is helpful to me as I already try to do this blog daily! I don't know if I'll sync up with the theme everyday, but I definitely will if I am stumped on an idea for a song.

Thanks for the inspiration Justa!
