The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain perform an awesome “Pinball Wizard”

≈ Johnny Foreigner’s Video Favorites 
Yes, I prefer this version to the original, but then I actually like haggis. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain have been playing together since 1985, though the group lineup has changed several times over the years. One constant over the past thirty years is the ubiquitous strum of the (wait for it…) ukulele.

The band has recorded the Sex Pistol’s “Anarchy in the UK” and Issac Hayes’ classic “Theme from Shaft,” as well as Tchaikovsky, Nirvana and Ennio Morricone (search out their performance of “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”)

Need a last minute stocking-stuffer for the holiday? Don’t buy Arcade Fire – purchase one of The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s four CDs available on their official website
