Late nights and youtube. . .

It started off as a quest for videos of the various Wainwrights. It devolved to watching a talented girl with a ukulele and way too much time on her hands. . .

I've never liked this song but I can't help but admire this version of it - ridiculous but infectious:

She also does a decent version of Her Majesty, one of my all time favourite Beatles tunes.

If I was to play 6 (well, 8) degrees of Youtube, it went kind of like this -

1. Martha Wainwright's BMFA to

2. Rufus Wainwright's One Man Guy with Martha singing back-up to

3. Loudon covering One Man Guy to

4. Loudon doing Daughter to

5. someone named mrabaz doing Daughter to

6. mrabaz doing Bright Eyes' The First Day of My Life to

7. Julia Nunes doing The First Day of My Life on Uke to

8. Julia Nunes doing Survivor

My advice? Skip steps 5 and 6. The rest of it is decent.

She actually does a good job!

I have to tell you, though, there is no way I am googling Loudon does Daughter. I would be terrified at what might come up.

I hadn't thought of that. My mother swore off the internet years ago when she did a search for information on senior citizens. She was helping one of my sisters with a school project. That was enough for her. She didn't shutdown; she unplugged.
