The World Needs More #3: The World Needs More 44 Seconds Long Ukulele Songs

The world needs more 44 seconds long ukulele songs.

It's like, even if you don't like the song, it's over before it can bug you too much!

This one I think is pretty cute! A nice, agreeably even number that kicks its sprightly heels and springs dittily along its way, then bids adieu with a bow and a bow on! Dittily, in a manner of or like a ditty. Adverb.

But they fumble the end, a bit. Don't they? Have a listen! It's like she ran out of words that were making her point, and slapped some other words on just to fill up those last 10, 15 seconds with a "big finish." They should have just cut it! Right around 0:29, 0:30.


Not to criticize miss Jenny Owen Youngs. I don't ever want to be accused of criticizing Jenny Owen Youngs!

Her name should really be Jenny Owens Youngs. That would be considerably more intriguing, in my opinion. I'm easily intrigued, it's true - but it's given me a keen sense of what does it.

Looks like she's put on a little weight! Since that cover of Nelly's "Hot In Herre" she did.

It suits her.

I love the ukulele. I won't say there are NO depressing ukulele songs, but if there are, I bet they were written by some wag for that express purpose, as a joke: "Hey, you know what would be funny? If I wrote a DEPRESSING ukulele song!"

I really need to get a ukulele.
