i am looking for songs that are similar to the magical workings of Tiny Tim. I am entranced by him, and i enjoy the ukulele sounding music. Thats besides the point, I am looking for more songs like that but more fingerpicking and similar to the end theme of Spongebob xD
Thanks in advance

It wasnt the songs that made Tiny Tim so wonderfully different & alluring. It is how he plays them. He could take Deep Purple "Smoke On The Water" & make it sound, flouncy 'Tiny Tim pop' so that you couldnt recognise the song , but still enjoy it.
His tounge in cheek music was more a backhanded swipe at , war , the times , the country , religion , etc. The thing is that no one (including him) thought it would HAPPEN for him as it did. He became a minor sensation over night. (A bit like the hubbub around Seasick Steve today)

There is a HUGE interest in ukulele music at present. Think there are a few BIG stars working on solely UKE albums, COOL.

Uke music:

If you want UKE-ish music go have a look at most banjo music.

Hey if you want to get right into uke there is a DIY kit from Stew Mac for like $100
