Youtube | Short Stuff 02 : You Are My Sunshine

Friday, 8 April 2016

M Y   O N L Y   S U N S H I N E 

When I got my ukulele in February, many asked I should play some music on my Youtube Channel. I laugh at the ludicrous thought. As friends, parents and strangers will tell you, I'm not a singer. With a Disney Princess voice that can't stay in tune and a limited vocal range. I stick to lullabies often. 

That didn't stop me from sitting in front of my camera and filming a cover of You Are My Sunshine. 


I regret removing my false eyelashes, my eyes look bare without them. 

Please note. I am not a great singer nor am I a great ukulele player. Barely passable at best. However, I have been playing You Are My Sunshine often. One of my favourite songs since childhood.  Its soft strings soothe me when I drive around my small home. 

You Are My Sunshine is special in its simplicity. It is not complex nor does it try to be. And that's okay. 

So it wasn't an actual cover.

Another segment to my Short Stuff series where I recount the past month's days in under two minutes. If February posed the question of comparing coolness, then March was finding happiness in dark days. 

Hence why You Are My Sunshine felt fitting.

What's your all-time favourite song?


  1. I really enjoyed this short video! You Are My Sunshine is a very beautiful and touching song. I can't chose a favorite song as I love a lot but one of my most most loved ones is Free Fallin' :)

  2. You have such a way with words it kills me, love this <3

  3. Such a tease... I cant really choose a favorite song, it depends my mood and the situation I am in.

  6. I'm not much of a singer either but you played the ukulele so beautifully =o) also love the editing of the video you did =o)

  7. Gah, you are so adorable! I really enjoyed this video, and all of your videos in general! xxxxxx

  8. Cute video! Wish I could play that instrument :D


  9. "I don't sing, I won't sing and I can't sing". ACTUALLY ME. I did karaoke when I was a young'un (I still remember the songs - Summer Nights from Grease and AM to PM by Christina Milian with this girl I'd become friends with like a few weeks before at this pub our families would frequent now that makes me sound like we'd just spend time in the pub. Not the case!)

    You play the ukulele beautifully! Wish I hadn't got rid of my orange baby, I only played her once or twice though :((

  10. Lol I thought you were actually going to sing. But trust me I CAN'T sing at all, too. I was the kid who never went to sing in school even for national anthem because singing is something I can't do.

    I've always wanted a guitar or drums. Musical instruments are important!!!!!!!!

    PS: You look like a mischievous kid in the first photo!

  19. Wow! I really liked the end of the song! (ily Bash hahah) What a coincidence, lately my friends and I have been hanging out and jamming, the three of us singing and playing the ukulele and guitar :) I taught my friend a few basic chords on the guitar and a simple strum pattern for a song she wants to learn how to play, and she's been goin' strong! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
