I Just Called to Say I Love You – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords and Lyrics

Stevie Wonder’s 1984 song, “I Just Called to Say I Love You” has been his biggest hit single, topping 19 charts worldwide. It won an Academy Award for “Best Original Song” and was also nominated for three Grammy awards (Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Pop Instrumental Performance, and Song of the Year).


For my ukulele strum-along, I played it in the key of G all the way through and the chords should be pretty easy to keep up with.

Tequila Sunrise – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords and Lyrics

“Tequila Sunrise” was the first single on the Eagles’ second album, Desperado, in 1973.


For my ukulele strum-along I didn’t try to emulate the signature guitar riff that starts the song, partly because I wouldn’t have done it very well, but also to show that the song can be done with just normal strumming and still sound pretty good. I also played it in the key of F, which is a little easier on the uke than the original key of G.

Till There Was You – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords and Lyrics

“Till There Was You” was written by Meredith Willson on 1950. It was featured in the Broadway musical “The Music Man” in 1957 then became a Top 40 hit for Anita Bryant in 1959. It was sung by Shirley Jones in the 1962 movie, “The Music Man.” The Beatles recorded it on their second album and the widow of Meredith Willson said they received more royalties from the Beatles recording than they made from the play.


I played it in the key of C as a ukulele strum-along. There are quite a few chords but all are pretty easy to play.
