    Bonjour, Armelle. Fanny Fanlight’s name alone
    amuses, and her voice is reminiscent of the voices of the old Disney animations. Plus the audio and video sync-up very nicely.

    At first glance Tony doesn’t strike one as the Paul McCartney type, but first glances often deceive. Sounds like he inhaled one of those gases that give
    your voice that high pitch.

    Dobos is a natural-born song and dance man if I’ve ever seen one. Bravo!

    Ron : Glad you’ve enjoyed. I was very pleased to have found Dobos’video as ukulele videos from Hungary are not that common. It’s funny that Dobos chose to cover this song from the Beatles as it is not one of the best known ones. But the song really suits him perfectly.
