Thank you for the song suggestions! I really appreciate that and as a beginner ukulele learner I am excited to try them out. As a suggestion, I would highly encourage you to think about perhaps not including the last song, “Zip a Dee Doo Dah” from Song of the South” on here. No matter how you look at it that song might be catchy, but the Disney movie it comes from is extremely racist and offensive, particularly to African Americans (obviously this argument could and should be made for other songs on here like from Pocahontas and Aladdin, and the Jungle Book, but Song of the South is a particular movie that is extremely offensive compared to others).
