That was an e-mail Sunny judged the most interesting of today's lot.
If by "use" you mean stream it, yes.
If you mean do I post videos, no. I don't even have a log in.
What do I watch there. I don't usually watch. I'll usually put it on like I would the radio. I like to catch this -- Ben Taylor doing Macy Gray's "I Try."
Other times, I'll look for a song I like and have on vinyl -- in other words, something I never listen to anymore. Like Cher's "My Song (Too Far Gone)."
Mainly I love finding live songs. Linda Ronstadt's amazing performing "The First Cut Is The Deepest" live. That gives me chills. It always reminds me of when we were going to Puerto Rico in the lead up to their primary -- four weekends we spent there -- and Kat: wrote about that when she reviewed The Very Best of Linda Ronstadt. From Kat's review:
"I'm going back some day, come what may . . ." she promises in "Blue Bayou." Linda Ronstadt. Judy Collins if Collins had a little soul and didn't think every performance was a recital. That's what Bill said, back in the summer of 1979, and probably the worst relationship I ever had but, when you're right, you're right. Flash forward to almost the present. We were in Puerto Rico a month before the primary, C.I., Ava, Elaine, Trina and myself. We'd landed, we had the rental car, we were good to go. Or so we thought. I was driving. Who's got the tunes?
No one had packed CDs. Got to have my tunes. A quick stop for sodas and gum and I'm at the counter where they've got a hundred scratch offs, aspirin by the twos in those little packages and assorted sundry items. They've also got a little white box with maybe a dozen CDs. I'm flipping through and the only act I'm recognizing is Jan & Dean when I come across Linda Ronstadt and assume it's a quickie, cut-out or one of those 'albums' that gives you seven or eight cuts and retails for $7.99 or less because there's only one cut you know. But it's the real deal, a full fledged collection, put together by a genuine label (Elektra) and it's got 21 tracks. We'll spend every weekend in Puerto Rico getting out the vote for Hillary and I didn't the need to wait until the results were counted to know Puerto Rico was going to be a lucky region. I discovered that at the gas station where I found The Very Best of Linda Rondstadt.
Hillary won Puerto Rico, by the way.
Kate Nash's "Foundations" is one I like to check out live and I love any live videos from Jools Holland's BBC show. I only know his show from YouTube and it may be like Letterman here but, in my mind, it's nothing but in concert performances.
