I LOVE YouTube. Like a lot. And for many reasons. But the number one reason is that, through YouTube, we can see live performances of some of our favorite artists. We can hear songs we love as sung by various artists who each put their own stamp on the piece. We can track an artist through her career to see – and hear – how her voice changes over time, how her interpretation of the songs she sings, which we love, change, and the like. And we can find the new, brilliant talents who, without the interweb, we simply wouldn’t know about.
So here’s the plan. I’m going to periodically post some of my favorite version of my favorite songs as sung by some of my favorite artists. And I encourage you to let me know what your view of a song is and what your favorite version is. Anyway, you should look out for these posts.
(Note: Okay, so the original plan was to use a separate blog to make posts like this. But I never really got it off the ground. I mean, the idea of keeping up with two blogs while also working on my other projects AND trying to get a job – it’s all just too much. So I’ve decided that I would just try to do a post like the one below one every week or two. You know, just to see how it goes.)
