"Big Blue Marble" celebrates that famous perspective of the earth in 1972 by astronauts on the spacecraft Apollo 17. This cute and bouncy tune with a triplet-based feel is a natural for ukuleles, especially when only a few basic chords are needed. The opening rhythm repeats over and over so that players can focus more on chord changes once they have the rhythm learned. It's useful for an Earth Day celebration on April 22, or for cross curricular discussions about earth, or it's perfectly charming to just sing for no particular reason.
