Friday Night Video

Two weeks from today Hall & Oates will be performing at The Borgata in Atlantic City. There's been some chatter amongst my friends about possibly heading out to see it and I, for one, hope it comes to pass. If you're interested in going, do let me know as soon as possible. Applications for accompanying duos are now being accepted.

In honor of Hall & Oates' upcoming gig I was going to dedicate today's video to them...but in searching for just the right song for a Friday afternoon, I instead found a cover of Rich Girl as charmingly performed by a cute girl with a ukulele for entry into the 2008 Bushman World Ukulele Video Contest. Yes, evidently this is a thing. Her cover of Rich Girl only took 15th place (an Mmm-Bop cover took first...and sort of deserved it, too), but she's got a great voice and has cute glasses. I'm sold. She even freestyles a little bit of No Scrubs in the middle. Nice. If nothing else this contest proves there are other ukulele songs beyond Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Ooooh, H&O. That is tempting, sir.

Meanwhile, you know who's playing there in late September, right? The one and only Mr. Springfield...
