Well folks, it’s been a wild ride.

This project was directly motivated by Ms. Shelley and the PDX Fun-a-Day project. On the record, the York Uke 30 project took a little longer than 30 days due to unforeseen schoolwork and illness. To view the full playlist, go to the York Uke 30 on Youtube.

I think I’ve been the most shocked at the videos with the most views: Public Property, I Am A Wizard, and Decomposing Composers. I’m not sure if I filled a certain ukulele youtube void, or if it was just the luck of the digital draw.

From the player’s perspective, my favorite songs are the ones in which I sing the instrumental breaks:

24: Friend is a Four Letter Word by Cake
21: Something by the Beatles
17: Sad Songs and Waltzes by Cake
13. Where Is My Mind? by the Pixies
8: Then I Met You by The Proclaimers
6: Mother of Pearl by Nellie McKay
4. I’ll Follow the Sun by the Beatles

Because of my account, I can see which music I listen to the most. Out of that I can cross out which musicians that I have not seen and who are not possible to see live (The Beatles, Elliott Smith, Neverhood Soundtrack, Traveling Wilburys, etc). I’ve skipped some I haven’t seen but could, because I’d really need to be in the gushy-mushy-lovey part of a relationship and have a boy to see Jack Johnson or Coldplay live, for example. I’ve been to a lot of good concerts, and I’m very grateful for that. See my PDX Concerts list if you’d like to be indie jealous. So if money were no object, and it’s a big object, this is who I would still like to see: [and then suddenly…]
