Song Of The Week VI

I saw these guys at Cambridge Folk Festival in 2007 and they were excellent. They caused a great amount of chortling and all of it was deserved.
I struggled to choose one of theirs to add here but it had to be this one as for years I was guilty of mishearing the lyrics to this song. Although I don't think that the blame can lie entirely with me, Ms Bush wasn't exactly enunciating clearly.
I was sure she was singing "It's me, I'm happy". I then also failed to realise that she was singing real words I thought she was just doing a lot of 'aaahing'.
Hey, in those days the Internet didn't exist to check song lyrics!

So here, for your viewing and listening pleasure this week is The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain performing Wuthering Heights:

I loved this clip, it was great fun, i have even sent it on to few friends, as I like it so much, its a unique perspective on the songs they do, I even explored to find a few other track on Youtube

I'm so chuffed that you liked it! They are absolutely brilliant, I've even coerced a friend of mine into buying tickets to go see them - even though he hasn't even seen this clip! My powers of persuastion must be great!

They are just brilliant, and hilarious. I saw them play three songs at once and the way they made them melt together... genius.
