Ukulele bliss

This is the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britian playing the theme from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly".

My fellow farkaholics have probably seen this already, but I feel compelled to share this with everyone else - I got a full body buzz from it. As a reference point, I've been known to tear up at the sound of a badass pipe organ, visibly twitch at the sound of poorly-tuned instruments and quite possibly take music too seriously.

On a personal note, I still prefer my younger sister's rendition of this theme, which she played maaaaany years ago on an oversized plastic bendy straw while sitting by a campfire - I'll never forget it. Love you very much, Alie.

I have a thing for bag pipes. Kev and I went to the Scottish Games festival this year. The drum and pipe band kicked ass.
