This post is part three of the French ukulele week.
In the current context of economic gloom, swine flu, november blues and other niceties, I refuse to give in to the negative atmosphere. Playing the ukulele is helping me doing just that !
Anybody who reads this blog regularly will know that I am a fan of the Monty Python.
This video, filmed during one of the C.O.U.L.E (Lille and surroundings Olympic Ukulele Club)’s sessions is a perfect reminder to Always look on the bright side of life !
The C.O.U.L.E is meeting up tomorrow for a session where they’ll cover songs around the subject of the Olympic Games which means that you can expect new videos to crop up soon. Subscribe to their YouTube channel here.
Drop the ‘O‘ and the ‘E‘ and you’ll end up with the C.U.L (a ukulele band from Lille as well) for another dose of enthusiasm in a song translated from Italian into French : Et si la vie.
Did I say French ukulele week ? It seems like many French ukulele players prefer to cover songs in English just as in this cover of Umbrella (Rihanna), performed by Julien Doré and Coeur de Pirate. Check out Coeur de Pirate’s perfect Halloween costume !
Let’s come back to French with this sailor song called Quinze Marins, a song by Michel Tonnerre.
