I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire

Wow. A day off of work. Cool. Well let me take the opportunity to bring you a long overdue ukulele video. I really dig this uke cover of the Ink Spots' classic, I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire. It's performed very sweetly by the lovely and talented, Najmah, from Singapore. I hope it charms you as much as it did me. Enjoy!

What a treat! I just happened to stumble upon this video of The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan playing the ukulele. The song is called, Baby. Enjoy!

Mad World

Just finished my first week back working full time. It's great to be working again. It just doesn't leave me nearly as much blog time as I had when I was unemployed. But don't worry. I'm not giving the blog up. I still plan to post a new uke vid every chance I get. Today's vid is a really cool ukulele cover of the Tears for Fears song, Mad World. It's performed by John, aka Keonepax. Enjoy!

My Heart Will Go On

I'm back to working full time, which is a big relief. Unfortunately, it leaves me with a lot less time to devote to Ukulele Babylon. So far I have been successful at posting a new ukulele video every day. I may have to cut that back a little bit soon. But I'm not going to break my perfect streak today. So here is Olu143, aka Sam from Oahu, performing a very lovely instrumental interpretation of the theme from Titanic, My Heart Will Go On. Enjoy!
