My music videos for 2009

Here are the Sunday music videos I have chosen over the course of 2009.

Videos do tend to disappear from YouTube after a while. Where I have noticed this and been able to find a close equivalent, I have quietly made the substitution. But the moral is clear: enjoy these songs while you can.

I started choosing a Sunday music video when I finally got broadband access in October 2007. You can find my earlier choices in a posting from August of this year.

You really are a fan of Steve Winwood (just like me):

He appears on 8 of your 52 videos ...

BTW: My wife and I are going to the open air concert of Steve and Eric Clapton in Munic - at 70€ per person that's not too expensive.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Eight out of 52? That is only 15.4 per cent.

I was afraid it would be higher than that.
