Ukulele Night In Canada

The hockey world is up in arms over the non-renewal of the Hockey Night in Canada theme song. I can’t quite decipher the legalities of what is going on between CBC and the woman who composed the tune, so I will refrain from commenting, but I will say that I think it’s a good little ditty, and it’s really a shame we won’t be hearing it anymore.

It’s possible that this surprisingly awesome ukulele version of the HNIC theme song has already made the hockey blog rounds, but I discovered it the old fashioned way; by tooling around on YouTube, following link after ridiculous link. Check him out. This is Ukulele Mike.

I love it

    How adorable! He’s an expert player, it seems.

    Lovely. I’ve always been fascinated by the ukulele for some reason. It amazes me that you can get so much sound out of such a little instrument.

    Kate, he seems like a definite step up from Blobby.

    Wow. My mother and I are sitting here, mouths agape. He’s very good!

    Tiny Tim was never that good.

    Wowza! That’s pretty awesome! It sounds so light-hearted and jazzy on the uke. That’s what this season needed more of — CBC should hire him to make next season better!

    Totally awesome. Does he do weddings?

    So when are you going to convince the rest of the BPO to play this?

    Awwwww! Marry me, ukelele Mike! Thanks for finding that. It’s very cheery.

    Don’t you love how he periodically gazes lovingly at the camera? I’m telling you, Ukulele Mike is the man.
