  1. I came across this by chance on iTunes: it’s called “Albume bianco (L’uovo che avanza)” by Fabio Koryu Calabrò, which is The Beatles’ white album played entirely on ukulele and sung in Italian. Every track. Even “Revolution 9″ as a collage. It’s pretty funny really.

  2. Metal machine music on an electrified uke would be tonally mesmerizing.

    And bj’s “only the good die young” mustbe recorded on this instrument…
