Nice. SS is one of the great modern song writers. I found her voice a bit C&W nasally for my liking when pushing but that was a great performance, thanks!

Does anyone seriously sit watching YouTube video's like listening to music?

Or is this more for interesting clips or music?

Surely it's a bit of both. There is some interesting stuff out there.

Where else are you going to find Jerry Lee Lewis, Jackie Wilson and the Righteous Brothers doing 'whole lotta shaking going on' together?

When I try to watch anything on this bloody computer the footage and sound goes all weird. Although when it's been posted here I can watch them no problems. Quicktime is too stop-start and useless when i TRY IT

I have name-checked it a few times, but a further mention of the e-letter, DANGEROUS MINDs, which, on a daily basis digs up old, new, classic, bizarre and funny clips from all over the place. They have posted links to obscure, and out of print movies, classic concerts, often full length etc.

This is stuff you would not even think to go looking for, and never realized you wanted. A sensational resource IMHO.

ZM.

I have been a 'late' starter on 'u-tube' but it is seriously growing on me!

It's not so much about 'listening' as it is about 'finding' new music, or music you already have but have never seen the clip.

I use it as a 'discovery' tool for finding new bands and also hearing their songs (which there would be no other way to do so).

That's why so many people here on SNA are posting songs from u-tube as it is the best medium for others to 'share' a 'link' to a band/artist/song/album etc etc.

If I hear about a band (that I don't know much about), I go straight onto 'u-tube' and 'discover' their songs, then if I like them enough I can go out and buy their music!

Also (being a 'Purple' fan), I have found soooo much Purple music (and clips) on u-tube, which has been facinating as a die-hard fan who thought he had most of their videos!

These sentiments pretty much align with mine. I use Grooveshark when I am looking to hear a particular song but if it is not there I will go to YouTube and invariably it is there. If I like what I hear it will often result in a purchase. So all in all it is a valuable tool for me

I'm also a bit of a late starter with youtube, but I've recently come to appreciate its value. I've managed to dig out some clips of bands from the past that I wasn't aware of before, and I also use it to look up clips when I 'discover' new artists.

I know I've posted this one before on the prog thread, but I can't help it, I love it!

This is an fascinating and emotional piece of music from Freddie Mercury, it was the B side to his horrible cover of The Great Pretender. Must track this down on 12", got into it after watching a recent show about Freddie's later years. Fascinating guy and it goes without saying one of the greatest musicians and performer of modern times.

This is one of my favourite riffs of all time. Pity they / he couldn't maintain the brilliance throughout the rest of the career

I watch them with my phones on with music and turn the youtube up if it looks interesting.

The audio quality is crap.
