I'm fairly certain it's time for my second ukulele feature post, so here's a song I think is very well known - If I Had You, written in 1928 by 'Irving King' (the pen name for Jimmy Campbell and Reg Connelly). My favourite versions are by Cliff Edwards aka Ukulele Ike and Nellie McKay (I've posted Nellie's version below mine). I really enjoy playing this song, even though I was super tired today and my voice was a bit off. Anyway, I've used up all my energy playing so I shall stop writing and let whoever wants to, watch the video.
This song is deceptively simple and SO much easier to sing when I'm not playing ukulele.
And, oh, how I wish I could sing like Nellie McKay. Isn't her voice positively swoon-worthy?
Hopefully you all enjoyed this (very brief) post enough to look forward to next month's ukulele feature...
