The YouTube Music Video with 16 Million Views

We’ve listened to Ain’t No Mountain High Enough a million times.

No, we’re still not tired of it.

Au contraire, we can’t get enough of this extraordinary song.

Because there’s magic in that song, originally sung by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.

The song was also featured in the Hollywood film Step-Mom, remade by Bollywood as the awful We are Family.

Sadly, both Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell are no longer with us. Long gone from our midst.

Tammi died of brain cancer and Marvin was tragically shot by his dad (no kidding).

But their magic endures, as it will for all eternity.

According to the folks at Wiki, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough is an R&B/soul song penned by Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson in 1966 for the Tamla Motown label.

Now WTF you waitin for punk, click on the below image and Nirvana is all yours:

    Sweetie, in our current inebriated state, we love it even more!

    This one is for the ages!

    When the cockroaches are all that’s left of this stupid world, this song will still be playing. And the roaches will be dancing to the fine tune.

    updating firefox to version 5 Responds:

    We updated a couple of days back.

    We didn’t do a blog post on it because the update is not that big a deal except for the Do Not Track privacy feature, which we think most web sites will not respect.

    Lady GaGa’s music videos have crossed a billion views (yes, with a ‘b’) on YouTube; 10 million followers on Twitter!

    This one alone has about 400 million views:

    She sings like a frog an has a effed-up face. But people are already comparing her to the greatest music artists of all time. How do you explain this? Must be because of the raunchy videos! Responds:

    You write: She sings like a frog an has a effed-up face. But people are already comparing her to the greatest music artists of all time. How do you explain this

    When someone explains to us how the homicidal whacko’s Ready and Dabangg can turn into hits, we’ll address Lady Gaga.

    Seriously, Lady Gaga well represents the decadent zeitgeist of America today. Be it in arts, war, leadership, taxation, culture, movies, music, morality or the economy, America is in precipitous decline. So, why should it be surprising if a less-than-impressive piece of music video gets a billion views. Au contraire, it’d be surprising if it didn’t.

    Plus, the woman has a finely attuned sense of the theatrical. Remember, her appearance in an egg at the Grammy function?

    That said, we did like a couple of tracks Lady Gaga’s new album Born This Way for which we paid the appropriate price of 99-cents (full album) at Amazon!

    Do you use Spotify? Responds:

    No, although I downloaded the app to the iPhone several months back. Never took the next step.

    After the CDs, the iTunes collection, the Amazon purchases, the library CDs (right now, I’ve borrowed 2 Dizzy Gillespie CDs) and YouTube, I don’t have much inclination or time for other stuff.

    Purchased 100 Must-Have Movie Classics for 99-cents on Amazon the other day (now $2.99 but you may be able to get $2 off with code MP3S4ALL)

      spotify has introduced “free radio” on iphone/ipad. The Indian song collection is much better than in Pandora etc. Responds:

      I’ll download Spotify tonight & take a deko at it.

      But there are several other Indian music/radio apps for iPhone/iPad offering free moosik on iPhone. I had a bunch of them but deleted them about six months back.

      Should Netflix buy Spotify?
