Valentine’s Day. The perfect occasion for being romantic and lots of random acts of kindness. Whether or not you’re a fan of this love-themed day, I feel a little extra display of affection never hurts.
This year, I decided to do something sweet and record a pretty little ditty for the love of my life. Ever since the Greaser bought me my beautiful Fender Ukulele for Christmas, I’ve been obsessed with playing my mini-guitar and singing along. What could be sweeter than singing him a song?
I’ve added more and more songs to my repertoire and I love getting inspired and try different types of songs on my Ukulele. From cute little Tiki songs to Disney classics and Rockabilly tunes.
Big Bad Handsome Man
I’m a big fan of Imelda May and I love singing her songs live on stage. I’d sung ‘Big Bad Handsome Man’ for the Greaser before, at a Christmas concert a couple of years ago.
I was curious what would happen if I’d sing one of my Imelda-Mayvourites accompanied by some gentle ukulele strumming. And it worked! So I put on a pretty dress, picked up my ukulele and recorded a sweet little version of this amazing song for my very own big bad handsome man.
Listen to my version of ‘Big Bad Handsome Man’ below:
