Well the good thing about my new aNueNue Banjo Ukulele is that it doesn't take much convincing to get myself motivated enough to do a video. I mean, chances are the uke is already in my hands, so I just have to turn on the camera. I seriously cannot get enough of my aNueNue!
Anyway, the song I did today was You Must Be Out of Your Mind by The Magnetic Fields. This is definitely my favorite song of the Realism record. On an only somewhat related note, does anyone know when the Magnetic Fields movie is supposed to come out? When my wife and I saw them in Seattle they had some cameras with them so I'm kind of hoping the footage from that show makes an appearance. Maybe you'll even be able to see when Stephin Merritt walked offstage and right over to the person who had just finished videotaping "Papa was a Rodeo". That guy got some harsh words, no doubt.
Anyway, you might notice that I switched the 2nd and 3rd verse. This wasn't intentional, but I didn't feel like doing it over just because of that. So, consider it an alternate rendition.
Here's the tabs:
