UKULELE MUSINGS 2020–Number 7: Good Old Tunes for Your Sweetie and Your Uke. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours!

For the past three or four years I have posted and commented on vintage banjo and ukulele related Valentine’s Day cards that I have found on the web.  I’ve reached the point where this tradition—while a lot of fun—is just too easy!  Vintage Valentines are low hanging fruit when it comes to surfing the internet.

So, this year I thought I would focus on vintage sheet music and tunes with Valentine or Love themes.  Here goes!

Needless to say, there are some quite early ones.

Then there are some that focus on young love.

Or, how about the wild and crazy love of days of yore?

Some funny Valentines.

A rowdy tune! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j29T_KJSWlg

Love is in the air!

Or at sea.

How about soldiers?

Let’s not forget Hapa Haole.

Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5zzg_w1UX8

A sad tale or two, alas.

And, there is the never ending stream of more recent days.

Anyway, have fun browsing through and, here’s hope that all of you have a way to share this day!

Oh yes. Here’s a Ukulele Tune for you and yours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihvCJ57L9RI

Stay Tuned–happily ever after!

Hi Fellow Strummers. These “musings” are based on my interest and study of Banjo and Ukulele history, lore, and music. My goal is to both educate and enlighten by sharing what I have learned within a broad musical and historical context—with honesty and, at times, a bit of humor. These are my personal thoughts, not those of any group or sponsor. Needless to say, your thoughts and comments are, as always, welcome.
