I recorded “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” on the ukulele about this time last year and somehow it’s gotten a bunch of comments that I was never alerted to. I am really bad at following my YouTube in the first place, but I’m pretty sure that I would have noticed this alert.
Well! The gentleman who co-wrote the song and was a member of Rockapella and went on to have a solo career, Mr. Sean Altman, friggin commented on my stupid ukulele video!
His comment is as follows:
It gives me great pleasure to be your first comment-er. Great job on my song. I’ve never heard it on uke, and it just goes to show that a catchy song translates to many styles. Let’s hope that J-Lo comes asking for permission to use it in her forthcoming Carmen flick. Yours, Sean Altman (ex-Rockapella)
7-year-old me is so stoked right now. And since I’m pretty much still fundamentally 7, I am also so stoked right now. WHAT IS MY LIFE
