Ukulele Anthem, by Amanda Palmer :D
Sid Vicious played a four-string Fender bass guitar and couldn't sing
And everybody hated him except the ones who loved him
A ukulele has four strings, but Sid did did not play ukulele
He did smack and probably killed his girlfriend Nancy Spungen

If only Sid had had a ukulele, maybe he would have been happy
Maybe he would not have suffered such a sad end
He maybe would have not done all that heroin instead
He maybe would've sat around just singing nice songs to his girlfriend

So play your favorite cover song, especially if the words are wrong
'Cause even if your grades are bad, it doesn't mean you're failing
Do your homework with a fork
And eat your fruit loops in the dark
And bring your etch-a-sketch to work
And play your ukulele

Ukulele small and fierceful
Ukulele brave and peaceful
You can play the ukulele too, it is painfully simple
Play your ukulele badly, play your ukulele loudly
Ukulele banish evil
Ukulele save the people
Ukulele gleaming golden from the top of every steeple

Lizzie borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks
Then gave her father forty-one, and left a tragic puzzle
If only they had given her an instrument, those puritans
Had lost the plot completely
See what happens when you muzzle

A person's creativity
And do not let them sing and scream
And nowadays it's worse 'cause kids have automatic handguns
It takes about an hour to teach someone to play the ukulele
About the same to teach someone to build a standard pipe bomb
YOU DO THE MATH

So play your favorite cover song, especially if the words are wrong
'Cause even if your grades are bad, it doesn't mean you're failing
Do your homework with a fork
And eat your fruit loops in the dark
And bring your flask of jack to work
And play your ukulele

Ukulele, thing of wonder
Ukulele, wand of thunder
You can play the ukulele, too
In London and down under
Play joan jett, and play jacques brel
And eminem and neutral milk ho-
Tell the children
Crush the hatred
Play your ukulele naked
If anybody tries to steal your ukulele, let them take it

Imagine there's no music, imagine there are no songs
Imagine that John Lennon wasn't shot in front of his apartment
Now imagine if John Lennon had composed "imagine" for the ukulele
Maybe people would have truly got the message

You may think my approach is simple-minded and naïve
Like if you want to change the world then why not quit and feed the hungry
But people for millennia have needed music to survive
And that is why I promised John that I will not feel guilty

So play your favorite Beatles song
And make the subway fall in love
They're only $19.95, that isn't lots of money
Play until the sun comes up
And play until your fingers suffer
Play LCD soundsystem songs on your ukulele

Quit the bitching on your blog
And stop pretending art is hard
Just limit yourself to three chords
And do not practice daily
You'll minimize some stranger's sadness
With a piece of wood and plastic
Holy fuck, it's so fantastic, playing ukulele
Eat your homework with a fork
And do your fruit loops in the dark
Bring your etch-a-sketch to work

Your flask of Jack
Your vibrator
Your fear of heights
Your Nikon lens
Your mom and dad
Your disco stick
Your soundtrack to "karate kid"
Your ginsu knives
Your rosary
Your new Rebecca Black CD
Your favorite room
Your bowie knife
Your stuffed giraffe
Your new glass eye
Your sousaphone
Your breakfast tea
Your Nick Drake tapes
Your giving tree
Your ice cream truck
Your missing wife
Your will to live
Your urge to cry
Remember we're all gonna die
So play, your ukulele

This has probably been posted a bunch of times by now, but whatevz. First time I ever heard it, my friend gave me a light show to it. Unfortunately, I was sober for it, but it was still pretty sick.

At one point, I wanted to be a professional musician, but I found I am just not passionate enough about sound to devote myself to it. I opted for fiction because I can sift through data and explore ideas in a very open-ended fashion---my true passion.

"The Run And Go", by Twenty One Pilots

First time I heard this it was extremely relatable and relevant, I probably cried idk
Also I knew about this band before they were cool
It fits Kylo Ren really well too tho wowow.




Edit: oh no it's 1:00am and I'm listening to MCR and drawing Kylo I'm officially obsessed oh no oh no oh no

One of my favorite albums ever


~~
Also, I've been trying to listen to screamo stuff (entirely Kylo's fault) but like
I usually can't understand the lyrics. And the lyrics are what make a song for me. :/
Anyone know of some good screamo type bands that have distinguishable lyrics?

Wrecking Ball, by Mother Mother
(This song existed before Miley Cyrus's btw. Different song, same title.)

I Found, by Amber Run
This songggg is sO GREAT

And I'll use you as a makeshift gauge
Of how much to give and how much to take
Oh I'll use you as a warning sign
That if you talk enough sense then you'll lose your mind

Oh and I found love where it wasn't supposed to be
Right in front of me
Talk some sense to me


~~~~~

Anyone know any songs about missing a friend? Not death or breakup songs. :/
Or not necessarily about missing a friend, just stuff that'll make me cry maybe pls
What would you listen to if you were missing your BFF???

Boats and Birds, by Gregory & the Hawk is really good

So I played Undertale a while back (yes, I'm an adult; I pay bills and everything). I had the typical player experience. I laughed, I cried, I d'waaa-ed, I AGGHGHGGED, and I got dunked on repeatedly by a fucking skeleton. It was pretty magical. I've been listening to the ost ever since, and I've discovered some awesome fanmade songs.

Man, I'm not a fan of English songs in general (except for a few). I usually listen to whatever language I'm trying to master.

I've listened to this at least ten times today
If you like that kind of thing i suggest checking out the band Middle of the Road, in case you haven't already of course. They were a power pop precursor to that cheesy disco stuff.

I might fill in with some other similar tunes later.

Take it or leave it, just felt like dropping the association.

Oo thanks! I just checked them out; good homework music.

What are some other cheesy disco bands or songs?
I love the BeeGees (I genuinely don't consider them cheesy tho)

Idk any disco-y stuff with an upbeat vibe is great
