God bless YouTubeJuly 31, 2006
Of the several thousand reasons to give thanks for YouTube, I count among them these many live Neil Finn/Crowded House/Split Enz videos that people have uploaded. That Neil Finn, I swear to God, just about the greatest thing that ever happened to music. You can keep your thom yorkes, your john lennon’s, your Lou Pearlmans, for my money, it just doesn’t get any better than this.
In fact, just about every music video I ever captured on VHS back when I still thought MTV was cool is available on YouTube now, as are a bunch of retro 1970’s commercials. Unfortunately, no Aames Home Loan to the Rescue spots, which no one on earth but me seems to remember. Not even YouTube 😦
