I have to agree. My 9 year old daughter begs me to record her singing High School Musical stuff to put on youtube. So she's got like three videos up there now...I mean, she was 8 when she started, so how good could they be, right? Man, I couldn't believe the comments...there were alot of nice ones, yes. And there there are people who are just entirely heartless. I mean, what the hell?? She's 8! I think they must either be children themselves or if they are adults they are the true failures at life with no kids of their own. How do you heartlessly trash a little girl trying her voice out for the first time?? I mean really crude vulgar insulting gros stuff!! I couldn't believe what I was reading, to be honest. Yeah she looks like she's having the time of her life and maybe people resent that. I dunno....but I had to take the comments down...it would literally break my heart if - all singing ability or lack thereof on her part aside - if she let that stop her from at least giving a good go at it.

This dude...yeah, he's not great. But I dunno....he's got guts. It's ok. It's youtube, y'know?


ETA: Oh great. I just listened to his BLT.
I'm glad you took the comments off! That could destroy her self-esteem. I'm not telling what to do or anything but maybe get her to sing in front of your video recorder, then you/her can control who sees it.

I have an 8 year old too! and i remember last year trying quite eloquently to suggest singing "Don't Cha" is prolly not the best thing to do in front of the class for "news-day"....Thankfully she did not, it's not that i don't want her to sing, I just know that kids can be little bastards.

This and the earlier likening to American Idol is so appropriate..

I mean, Simon, and I'm sure he realizes it, is actually a part of the entertainment. He's playing the asshole, and he's an entertaining asshole. I would hope he realizes that when millions laugh when he disses someone, they're more laughing at the entire thing, him included. Well at least I do...similarly on youtube. Some of the stuff on youtube I'm neither hot nor cold on, it's yawn-worthy at most. This guys videos I put in the 'mildly amusing, worth a chuckle' category, not the 'omg I hate this guy and I want to eat his children because he tread on my sacred U2 music so let me leave him a rotten comment' category. It's the REACTIONS that are side-splitting. I mean, wow. Just wow.

I don't like Emo's singing to U2.

Instantly, the flavor and color of the song turned into some kind of dramatized, unreal, depressed attitude that seems naive.

The song is about anger against violence and how innocent people died on a certain Sunday. Unless they could connect to that, I doubt they can match the passion U2 put into that song.

To me, it sounds like a crap cover with no emotion (ironic, but typical of Emo covers). Really, anyone could play Sunday Bloody Sunday, slow and lethargic, and sing it like a depressed teenager.

it's not even his singing that's so bad.
i mean, yeah... it's awful. it's as bad as gets, i can't imagine anyone singing worse.

truly. at least without it being a joke.

but it's not just that. it's his smug attitude, and his farcical "actions" that he provides the song with.

and noone feel an ounce of pity for him. people like him could just as well have removed comments from their videos - or better yet - refrain from posting the bloody videos in the first place.

and besides all that, the man in the videos i posted has really high mum-jeans.

After listening to that crap I now need to sit down in the shower in fetal position with thumb in mouth. I feel like I have just been touched in a very sickening way.

OUCH

Paramore is actually a pretty good band. They have a few really rocking songs, and they are huge U2 fans.

You guys should cut them some slack. Same with Flyleaf, big U2 fans.
