Guitar and Ukulele Tabs for All I Want Is You (U2)

This is a song that’s definitely harder to learn to sing than to play, mostly because of the high vocal range required at the end. I found a very nice fan video for it, with the original recording to which I created my guitar and ukulele tabs.

These tabs all fit on one page to avoid the inconvenience of page turns. However, the letter size tabs (8.5″ x 11″) may be too small for your eyes. If so, you can either enlarge to tabloid size (11″ x 17″) using an automatic enlarge feature on many photocopiers, or download the tabloid sized versions for printing. The tabloid size tabs can be inserted into a typical letter sized binder on the 11″ size, and folded almost in half to fit. You just open each tab to use it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


I’ve tried to put a strumming filler between verses like in the song with the main chords and slight modifications of them. You strum to the rhythm of the phrase, one stroke for each note and resting when there is a rest. It would only take you a few minutes to figure it out and once you do, it wouldn’t be very hard to play because I’m not trying to show off any skills here. I’m just trying to avoid gaping holes in the song played by one person and one instrument when there doesn’t need to be such a gap.

The capitalized letter of the song notes are meant to be an octave higher than the notes with non-capitalized letters. The ending, as you can hear on the song, is very high. Most guys will have to use falsetto to sing this, but give it a go.

Don’t snap your vocal chords, though! 🙂

Sing I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon for Your Kids as a Lullaby

Today, I came across the song below somehow via one of those suggestions on YouTube as I was watching something else. You’ve got to love these seemingly random recommendations when they work. I know it’s some intelligent algorithm that’s essentially a bet you’d like something based on a few features it has in common with something else you watched, but it sure seems random sometimes.

Very philosophically cute!

Anyhow, as I listened to the song, with the bedtime video featuring Ernie (my fav) from Sesame Street, I thought wouldn’t that be a nice song to sing for your kids as a lullaby?

It’s easy enough to do so, and would sound fine without accompaniment.

So here it is, video and lyrics, for those of you who might want to try.

Well, I’d like to visit the moon
On a rocket ship high in the air.
Yes, I’d like to visit the moon,
But I don’t think I’d like to live there.
Though I’d like to look down,
At the Earth from above,
I’d miss all the places,
and people I love,
So although I might like it for one afternoon,
I don’t want to live on the moon.

I’d like to travel under the sea.
I could meet all the fish everywhere.
Yes, I’d travel under the sea,
But I don’t think I’d like to live there.
I might stay for a day there,
If I had my wish,
But there’s not much to do,
When your friends are all fish,
And an oyster and clam, aren’t real family,
So I don’t want to live under the sea.

I’d like to visit the jungle,
Hear the lion’s roar,
Go back in time and meet a dinosaur.
There’s so many strange places I’d like to be,
But none of them permanently.

So if I should visit the moon,
Well, I’ll dance on a moonbeam, and then,
I will make a wish on a star,
And I’ll wish I was home once again.
Though I’d like to look down at the earth from above,
I would miss all the places and people I love,
So although I may go,
I’ll be coming home soon,
‘Cause I don’t want to live on the moon.
No, I don’t, want to live, on the moon.


Who Would You Want to Narrate Your Biography?

Just a quick fun post today to take a break from all the iPad wallpaper postings of late, courtesy of an idea by my friend, the Intrepid Ms Laltoo.

You have probably watched a biography television show at one time or another. You can have pictures, film or video clips, interviews, music, and such, but there is a narrator who generally tells the main thread of the story of your life.

Well, if you had a biography show done on your life, who would you want to narrate your biography?

If you can give a reason with your choice as a comment below, that would help give some context.

Blogging on the spot, I don’ t know if I have a definitive answer. However, my gut says William Shatner, best known to me as Captain Kirk (later Admiral), of Star Trek fame. But I think the skit below illustrates why better, from tone, to humour, to styles of speaking, etc.

William Shatner as Admiral Kirk from the Star Trek movies

It’d also be symbolic since I love Star Trek… although I don’t own a phaser, just a TNG uniform to be the Asian representation at all the Star Trek events since we can’t have Star Trek without Asians. Mind you, I hope I outlive Bill so that he wouldn’t be alive to narrate my biography.

But there’s hope with science-fiction, cryogenics and reincarnation… if we can’t live forever by that time.

But wait! If we do, then my biography will never be due! 🙂

And. Yes.

I. Would. Vote. For. William. Shatner. As. The. Next. Governor. General. Of. Canada!

Because. I. AM. CANADIAN!!!!

Now, care to write your Six Word Biography in case you’re not rich enough to commission your narrator of choice for more than six words?
