Proof That Size Doesn't Matter

An old friend whose position was eliminated 3 years ago, after a 30-year career with a global bank that had posted him all over the world, spent quite a bit of time blogging from his home in Miami, thinking about what to do with the rest of his productive years.

One of the things he posted on his blog, about 18 months ago, I enjoyed so much that I've thought about it ever since. It's the theme to the film "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" performed by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.  Proof, in just under four minutes, that small instruments can deliver big sound.  Anyway, I love this.

This was AMAZING! Thank you for sharing it with us. I have no musical talent at all but really appreciate those who do!

Love love love this. thanks for sharing

I could listen to this over and over. On the day I posted it, I did just that. Glad you liked it.

I've seen this video any number of times over the years, and am still enthralled by it! Easily the best version of the song I've ever heard. Thanks for sharing it!

They look like they're having fun with it. My kind of orchestra.

Absolutely! And I still think that the lead guitarist (the guy whistling) flubbed a whistle at about the 2:34 mark - not much one can do but grin when something like that happens during a live performance! Doesn't detract from the song or the performance one bit though.

Totally entertaining! Those are what they call The entertainers.

This brought me back the memories during early childhood that the only kind of American movie available to be watched on TV are Cowboy movies. And with that background music.

It does bring back memories of youth. We may have similar memories of this time.

love it.

sometimes i wish i could whistle like that. (or at all)

With the ear of a professional musician, it would probably be easier to learn than for the average person, but keep at it. I'm a much better whistler than I used to be, but I still have no talent for stringed instruments.


Wow....I've never heard this but it really is awesome....I loved the way they did it....Thanks so much for sharing it!! :)
