    Good songs! If you need some more ideas- check out my favorite radiostation from Philly at http://www.xpn.org. You can stream it live; lots of great music that I think you’d like.

    Maybe you’ll like this jam/gem by Sharon Van Etten: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7m3Ly2A9mbo

    Is this the ukulele edition? Yeah ukes!
    I’ve been playing for a year and a half. I highly recommend learning to play the uke.

    If a 9 year old can do it…

    Thanks for bringing us along on your quest to listen to 1,000 new songs–my iTunes has certainly grown from it.

    I have a suggestion for songs–Have you heard the new Matisyahu Hanukkah song, “Miracle”? It kicks driedl ass.

    I did a post on it at http://www.modernkiddo.com, and thought of you and your list. But you can also find it on Youtube pretty easily.
