Not a bad cover version, either.
Oh! I want to be a hipster!
Good cover, though!
I wish they’d dropped the bass from the sky semi-randomly, too, but I guess I understand why not.
Gorram I need to move to that universe.
Is it just me, or does the bass need a mic? Either way, the rest of the music was great.
That’s a great cover..
What this gig needs is a banjo!
I took several years of math at the university, and I would have to say those ukele drops were anti-random.
awesome cover btw
They does do a fine job. Gotta admit the uke drop was fun.
I will listen to this at the _very least_ once more.
And I intend to learn more Adele: Someone Like You.
Excellentness on the ukelele drops.
(My failure to complement anything else in no way indicates my opinion or lack thereof
about that other thing).
Aargh. So lame. Answering meself.
And vis the guy with the white hajib sort of thing.
Dude, I so really hate bad hair days.
What I immediately found for Adele: Someone Like You is less good than
than that cover.
Interesting thing on the Kroger food store ‘muzak’ the other day was Tracy
Chapman: Fast Car. — Note to self: Verify I got all her music.
Are you bringing your uke to Confusion? Maybe we should play together.
Nice cover…the ukulele seems to be a more ubiquitous instrument than I actually thought ;o)
Very good cover ! Thanks for the link (as for previous wild horses)
A bientôt, old’s man.
Thanks! It’s a great cover, and I can at least listen all the way through without bursting into tears and sobbing inconsolably. It’s the uke that brightens it up.
Our African gray parrot (named “Rho”) started dancing to this video while I was reading “Whatever” and eating breakfast. So, I filmed it:
After reading the title, I’m now imagining a guiding force that determines the non-random element of the ukeleles dropping from the sky. The theological implications are not reassuring.
I discovered them this week as well, but from their “Five people, One guitar” video. Amazing.
Rho, hey birdie.
I so need some dancing lessons.
Troy, somebody else gave me the Gotye cover on the weekend. Not quite as good as the original (best song released last year) but still very nice work! Also check out the Eskimo Joe cover of the same song.
Does this song really work as a duet?
I’ve enjoyed their covers and their videos, though I’m sad that what we’re hearing isn’t actually from the video itself.
Oh man. This post led to me to the Gotye cover and I have watched it no less than a dozen times in the past 2 days. Love their harmonies.
As for the sound in the videos I thought they usually had someone behind the scenes doing whatever soundy stuff needed to be done to make it sound right. Like they do here (DON’T WATCH if you don’t want the Uke drop secrets spoiled!) Disclaimer: I am NOT a soundy person so I could be totally wrong.
Speaking of Ukes, there’s a British ukelale orchestra, who once did a cover of the theme from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
