The cover of Men at Work’s “Down Under” is OK, but the one who steals the show is the dog in the background, laying on the bed, thinking to himself: “Guh. He’s playing it AGAIN.”

If I didn’t have a job, if I didn’t have a home — I’d be this guy. Maybe even voluntarily.

Ah, the ol’ “Four Chord Song” skit from the Australian comedy band Axis of Awesome. Want to play along with them? The four chords you need to know for this particular video are E, B, C#m and A. Then you can play EVERY POP SONG EVER WRITTEN (kinda). A more technical explanation of the four-chord phenomenon can be found here. And this discussion board thread kicks off with a healthy list of four-chord songs you can hammer out yourself.

And now this message

This arrived in my inbox recently from Scottish blogger cumbersmerch. Her Tumblr is gleekwinchester. She issues this request:

"Hiii, I would be eternally grateful if you could maybe post this message, I have been posting some Ukulele chords on my page as most of the sites I find tend to only have the classic Ukulele tunes. I’ve put up some more modern stuff and hopefully I’ll build up a bit of a library.. so If anyone have any requests I can work them out and stick them up :) Some come with audio as well!! Thank you world."

You heard her, folks — deluge her with your requests!
