Videos of the Day: Ukulele Covers of MGMT and Train (by an 8-year-old)

Posted By on Fri, Apr 23, 2010 at 8:20 AM

I have a new rule when it comes to Train songs. I only want to hear them as covered by this cute little 8-year-old on his ukulele. Otherwise, I don't want to hear them at all. 



There's a whole YouTube genre of uke covers--some of which are actually good songs to start with. MGMT's "Kids," for example, sounds very sweet on the wee stringed instrument. 



Speaking of "Kids," how about this cover by Ooks of Hazzard--seven of the nine members here play ukes.


If I'm missing any of the great uke covers of all time, feel free to chime in here. (I'd add the ukulele version of Morning Benders to my list). Please post your favorites in the comments section below.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
