I’m working on a little theory here; let me know what you think.

I’ll state it here as a bold statement:

The very best ukulele songs involve either sunshine or moonlight.

They don’t have to be ABOUT sunshine or moonlight, specifically, but the sunshine or moonlight has to play a prominent part.

Daring? Bold? Right? Wrong?

Here are a few of my faves (click for video):

Or course, it may be, that it’s just there are a lot of good songs in general that involve sunshine or moonlight. But an awful lot of them do sound awfully good on the uke.

Got a song to add to the list?

Add your faves to this thread over at Facebook.

Meantime, keep livin’ in the sunlight.

And, more importantly, keep loving’ in the moonlight!
