Hi guys! Looking for songs to play with the ukulele, I found a terrific musician. Her name is Sophie Madeleine, she's English and plays a lot of instruments, the uke among them. The coolest thing about her besides her talent and original songs, is that she has covered a lot of classic oldies, in a super fresh and inspiring way. This Old Songs ( I changed it from "Happy" to "Cool") post is dedicated to those covers. Enjoy:
Goody, Goody (another neat version of this song appeared in the first post of this series)
"A ballad by the songwriting team Robert and Richard Sherman. It appears twice in the 1968 Albert R. Broccoli motion picture Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: first as an idyllic lullaby by Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke, watch) to his children; and later when the children of Vulgaria have lost all hope of salvation." (Wikipedia)
Dream a little dream of me
"Dream a Little Dream of Me" is a  song with music by Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt and lyrics by Gus Kahn." (Wikipedia)
If I had you
All I do is dream of you
"The music was written by Nacio Herb Brown, the lyrics by Arthur Freed. The song was published in 1934. It was originally written for a 1934 movie, Sadie McKee." (Wikipedia)
AND MY NEW FAVORITE...
This one is soooo sweet, it's from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (the original, not that awful remake, of course)...
Awesome, right? Have a great weekend!
