The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain–we’ve featured them here before, playing covers of everything from David Bowie’s “Heroes,” to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” and The Who’s “Pinball Wizard.” And let’s not forget their stirring performances of Ennio Morricone’s western theme songs. Now, to help lift you out of the COVID gloom, they’re back with a novel take on the Stones’ 1965 classic, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Hope you enjoy.
Note: The orchestra plans to post a new video every Sunday on their YouTube channel, and a full (pay-per-view) concert every month available on their website.
