Songs, and a songster's comedy




In this post, I'll show you three music videos. The first is from a marvelous singer who sings to purchased backing tracks. The other two are from singer/songwriters with guitars. We'll end this post with a funny but insightful comedy sketch from one of the best and most popular musicians on YouTube.

First, let's have a look at this week's YouTube Top 100 Weekly Chart. There's only one switch in positions in the Top 20 and not much movement in the rest of the chart, either! Is this the calm before the storm? Will there be a wave of new videomakers climbing the charts in the coming months, as many YouTubers begin their summer vacation? We'll just have to wait and see! There is one big mover, communitychannel. Natalie jumped up 36 positions with her 4204 new subscribers this week, to land at the Number 61 spot! Check her out!

The 2BuxMall, a place to make your own Store where you can promote or sell things, went online for testing this week. So far, there are 8 test Stores open. Many of the links on the Store pages are live; visit some of the Stores and see for yourself! For more on the 2BuxMall, see the FAQ and Blog.


Every Little Star

Oh my! YsabellaBrave keeps making the best singing videos on YouTube! This time, MaryAnne sings an early 60s hit originally sung by Linda Scott. (Actually, the words and music were written by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II for the 1932 Broadway musical "Music In The Air") The song also appeared in David Lynch's enigmatic movie, "Mulholland Drive". This video is cuteness to the max! Have a look...

Shine Your Light

Here's a nice song from a singer/songwriter who goes under the YouTube name of eatmorecookies. I'm doing that right now and have to be careful not to get any crumbs in the keyboard! This Nashville man has uploaded 20 videos in the month that he has been a member. They all feature him accompanying his singing with his guitar playing. This video is eatmorecookies' newest addition. It was recorded in one take with no editing. The chord changes are enjoyable and his singing is very good. Check out this uplifting video!

Dear Ovaries (original)

As they used to say on Monty Python, "and now for something completely different..." Here is a song by singer/songwriter StitchedElf - and even she admits "...it's weird...". I think its a creative music video by a young lady with a very nice voice. Gina has uploaded 12 videos; some are originals and some are covers. They are all quite good! Watch this video here, then click over to YouTube to read the lyrics. They're pretty unique!

No-One Makes Videos Any More....

Leprechauns are real! There's one in this video, and he's a pretty good psychologist! This funny yet insightful video from popular singer/songwriter Periurban looks into the thoughts and feelings that people may have as they progress through their videomaking career. Watch as Peri converses with his inner self about the ups and downs of YouTube popularity.

Thanks you very much!!!!
 

well, i'm sure you have realized smosh is going to take the top spot sometime tomorrow or so. their history chart is just looney compared to the other top channels, talk about a quick rise smoking #3-#100! anyhow, i guess a lot of youtubers will be happy if lonelygirl15 is dethroned, but not me. i like episodic fictional video online, of which lg15 is only the only truly successful series on youtube (nohogirls is a far distant #2, and promqueen is getting 95% of its views on myspace, not youtube).
