Top five tunes I've learnt to play on my ukelele (that I got for christmas from my lovely wife)
1 The Ramones - Blitzkreig bop
2 Nancy Sinatra - Sugartown
3 OMC - How bizarre
4 The Clash - London calling
5 Johnny Thunders and the heartbreakers - Chinese rocks

Now, I'm on the hunt for some more tunes to learn, so, any suggestions? keep in mind, its a uke, so no multi-chord epics (prog rock must die).
