Thread Name: Chords Req: Spread a Little Happiness
Subject: RE: Chords Req: Spread a Little Happiness
I opened up this old thread because I've been playing this song. I found a YouTube of Kenny Watkins singing it with a ukulele, here http://youtu.be/3fGA1J9k4DM , which I rather prefer to Sting's version. There's a rather simpler set of chords, which I think he uses at http://www.doctoruke.com/spreadalittlehappiness.pdf. Simpler but challenging enough, and very pretty.
Great little song. I like the way the tune is jaunty and melancholy at the same time
I wish someone could put up on YouTube a better quality of Binnie Hale's version from 1929.
I think both those links work. I' mot lazy to turn them into blue clickies to find out right now. I might later, if someone else doesn't.
Happy Christmas everyone!
