    Get the full concert from http://www.ukuleleorchestra... ! This is the Orchestra's version of Talking Heads' Psycho Killer, performed at the Royal Albert Hall. On Tuesday 18th August 2009, with every seat and all standing room occupied, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain played to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall in London, with over 6000 audience members, and well over 1000 of them bringing ukuleles to join in with Beethoven's "Ode to Joy".

    This clip is taken from their DVD "Prom Night", The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain Live at the Royal Albert Hall BBC Proms 2009, made from filming on the night, which the Ukulele Orchestra has managed to get access to. The DVD is available only from www.ukuleleorchestra.com and has never been broadcast, signed, licenced or sold elsewhere.

    The music played is:

    Puffin Billy (Edmund White, Great British Light Music Classic)
    Anarchy in the UK (The Sex Pistols)
    Ride of the Valkyries (Richard Wagner)
    Silver Machine (Hawkwind)
    Life on Mars (David Bowie)
    Thunderball (James Bond / John Barry)
    Teenage Dirtbag (Wheatus)
    Danse Macabre (Camille Saint-Saëns)
    Jerusalem (William Blake and Hubert Parry)
    Psycho Killer (Talking Heads)
    Ode to Joy (A fragment of Beethoven arranged for 1008 ukuleles)
    Pinball Wizard (The Who)
    The Dambusters March (Eric Coates)
    Melange (which reveals how all the key rock songs are variants of one theme)
    Wuthering Heights (Kate Bush)

    This DVD cover notes say it "is a complete record of the Ukulele Orchestras Proms debut, with footage of the full concert. Extras include interterviews and atmospheric scenes of impromptu music-making from ukulele-playing audience members, backstage footage of the Ukulele Orchestra prior to the concert, 5.1 Surround Sound and ukulele sheet music for the participation pieceOde to Joy."

    Seeing as we regularly receive emails from Ukes-fans asking for the arrangement of our songs, we've decided to give you all a little tour through one of our long-standing favourites: Hot Tamales.

    You will find 8 short videos from each member of the Ukes showing what they're playing in this song here along with a video of the Ukes playing it on stage (in Tallin, Estonia).
