Any good ukulele songs?

Just trying to find some good uke songs. This can be for anyone but I want to find some good songs to play because I'm bored.

The happy birthday song sounds nice on the uke. My GT teacher in 6th grade played it on our birthdays and never gave us test prep; most of us ended doing pretty bad on the test because all we did was passion projects. But now I have a great appreciation for the happy birthday song!

      Tiny Tim used to play a ukulele when he was still alive. His music is still very popular today in modern culture. There's also one more entitled Riptide by Australian artist Vance Joy. You've probably heard it on the radio before. That's honestly the only music I can think of that usese a ukelele at any point in the song. If you're looking for the true tropical touch of Hawaii, I'd just search for it on YouTube. I'm sure there are some mucicians who specialize in island music that I've never heard of before. The ukulele is a rare instrument in the music I listen to.

Heres a random vid of this dude who taught himself ukulele while backpacking the PCT. Pretty neat visuals too.

Skyrush's stengel dive! The most intense element I have ever experienced that combines unbelievable laterals with thigh crushing airtime. Insane is an understatement.

Someone at my school can play the ukulele and I remember her playing Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presely. It seemed to translate pretty well to the ukulele. The song actually sounds rather good with the ukulele. I'm not sure how difficult the song will be, but I'd give it a try. It would be a good song to learn I think.
