Links archive Part I!

Look at it! Just look at it! It's bloody breathtaking!

For the benefit of anyone considering joining BUG or anyone who can't be arsed to go through their emails here is a as comprehensive as I could manage links archive of everything song I've ever posted out. I'll be missing a few as some people sent their song choices out as pdfs. I'm gonna figure if there's a way I can post them here.

Anywho. Knock yourselves out.

Cat Stevens- "If You Wanna Sing Out, Sing Out"

Chords (Ignore the intro if you want):
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/c/cat_stevens/if_you_want_to_sing_out_sing_out_crd.htm
And how it goes for those who haven't heard it (Not to mention a lovely picture of the man himself)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDq36YD1ESM

Electric Light Orchestra "Mr. Blue Sky"
Chords (Not as hard as some of them may look!)
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/e/electric_light_orchestra/mr_blue_sky_crd.htm
And how it goes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98P-gu_vMRc

The Rolling Stones: The Last Time
Chords: (This version contains E. And I know some of you have feelings about that chord but it's the only version I can find. If you have any other versions that you'd rather play feel free to mail them around)
http://www.rockmagic.net/guitar-tabs/rolling-stones/the_last_time.crd
And how it goes (Also a chance to see keith when he last occupied a recognisably human form)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0adgEdCdWvA

Prince: "Starfish and Coffee"
Can anyone remember/and/or post the chords we used. They were fairly easy I think. Here are the lyrics anyway
http://www.lyricstime.com/prince-starfish-and-coffee-lyrics.html
And of course, it being prince, there isn't a free version to be found on the internet. So we'll just sing along best we can.

New Order: "Blue Monday"
This was THE jam track of last week so feel free to mess around with it all you want
Chords and lyrics
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/n/new_order/blue_monday_crd.htm
And I genuinely can't believe that no one knows how this goes. But if you wanna see the awesome videp again, knock yourself out

Elvis Costello: "What's So Funny About Peace Love and Understanding"

The White Stripes: "Hotel Yorba"
Chords and Lyrics: http://www.giantflightlessbirds.com/ukulele/hotel_yorba.pdf
We've sung it already, so I'm pretty sure eveyone gets the jist.

Bright Eyes: "At the Bottom of Everything"
We tried this at the first meeting and it was pretty easy and fun so I though we could have another bash
Chords and Lyrics: http://www.giantflightlessbirds.com/ukulele/bottom.pdf
And you tube clip (If only to see the awesome video): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qikRcAiCtKM

Kraftwerk: The Model
Chords: I reckon it's just A minor and E minor all the way through. Feel free to correct me should you be compelled.
Lyrics:http://www.lyricsdepot.com/kraftwerk/the-model.html
Youtube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watchv=QgS252XT_Ts

Mike from Giantflightlessbirds here: sorry those links are broken, but give me a contact address and I'll email you the latest PDF versions. Congrats on your excellent lineup: I was amazed to hear Bright Eyes open your set on the video, now I feel vindicated for typing that one out.

Cheers,
