Earlier in the week, I had a post called: Site Update / Poems Page Evolution in which I stated I had completed the updating of my “Poems” page so now there was a video associated with each of the song lyrics.
Well, it turns out YouTube has changed some of it’s policies so certain videos are banned from display based on the copyright laws of your country.  I have about 150+ lyrics posted and only about 50 have been recently updated, I’m not sure how many or the earlier videos are affected by this policy change.  I checked my first four and only one worked for me.  They may still work for you in your country.
In any case, I’ve made a good faith effort to provide this convenience for you.  I doubt I want to take the time and energy to update them again when YouTube (or the initial poster) can just change their policy / mind and make future changes fail again.  I’m afraid (for the time being) you will have to go look the videos up yourselves (again).  “The best laid plans of mice and men…

When I started adding my own poems to this site (see tabs on top), I decided I was also going to add famous speeches which moved me.  After a bit, I decided I would also add my favorite songs – again based on the words (in this case lyrics).  Over time, that evolved a little to also include some songs for humor or just because I liked them and not just for the words / lyrics themselves.  Again, after some time, I eventually decided to start adding the videos.  To be a little more honest, I started actually using YouTube to listen songs and watch their associated videos.  About three years ago, I started adding the videos to the lyrics pages.  Unlike in my postings though, I put the videos at the end of the lyrics (beneath the lyrics), instead of front and top.  At that time, I began indicating which had videos by placing an asterisk after the song title on my “Poems” (“menu”) page, with the promise I would go back to add them all “as time permitted”.
Well, after a couple of years, I finally made the big push to get it done.  Over the last week, I have updated the last fifty (50) or so songs which still did not have videos.  If any of you have time to go check them out, I’d appreciate any of your feedback.  I haven’t bothered to remove the asterisks, even though there is really no reason to retain them on the page.
Anyway, I hope some of you will enjoy the lyrics and the videos as much as I have enjoyed reading them and listening to them over the years…

After (to me) six long weeks, my wife is returning from visiting her family back in Liverpool.  I have missed her a great deal.  The above video is a dedication to the love of my life…  It’s not entirely accurate / appropriate since we’ve been married for over 30 years, but I do still cherish her and love the sentiment of the song’s lyrics.
