PostSubject: Top 10 Matt Giraud videos on YouTube   Sun Oct 24, 2010 2:05 pm

This thread will showcase some of Matt's most popular Youtube videos. I like to go back and listen to old videos of Matt sometimes, and I have noticed a huge uptick in views of his videos since the beginning of the summer. My suspicion is that he was introduced to new fans through his large summer concerts, and they went to Youtube to check him out.
Whatever the reason, increased Youtube views are a sign that there is still significant interest in Matt since AI, and we can help that along by viewing the videos ourselves, adding comments, and liking the videos.

So each week I'll showcase which videos are doing well. We can discuss here why these are his most popular videos. I'll try to come up with interesting ways of organizing the data, and would love input on other ideas.

This week I want to start with something simple. Here is a list of the TOP 10 videos, which you'll see are all from AI. Some still get a hundred or more views a day, and a few have over 200,000 views. If you look at the comments, you'll find a debate continues to rage as to whether Matt sounds better than the Fray, Carrie Underwood, Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, and various covers of "My Funny Valentine".

It was fun watching these videos again! (Who am I kidding...I still do the Matt G youtube rounds every so often as I'm sure many here do. Uuhm pretty much everyday, lol!) I'm feeling so nostalgic and a bit sentimental esp. after seeing "My Funny Valentine" and remembering how heartbroken I was when he got voted off the show. Boohoo! I still think Matt should have won or at the very least been in the Top 2 or 3.

Thank you for posting a Top 10 list, csprof! I'm already looking forward to the next one. It's funny to see some of the same debates continue on the comments, though not as nasty as when the competition was still on! Matt is so versatile as these videos show. I can't wait for him to release his album and just define himself to the world once and for all.

Creating this thread made me nostalgic, too. The studio recordings were soooo good.

I'm going to post at the end of the week what the number of views is so you all can see how many people are viewing these videos per week. It is impressive that some are still getting so much attention 18 months later. It shows Youtube is one way to reach a broader set of Matt fans than we can find on this forum or twitter.

Thanks, csprof for these links. It was fun to watch them again. With all of Matt's new music I had forgotten my prior obsession with Who's Loving You. That was my all time favorite song Matt did on AI and I still have that week's show saved on my DVR (when I'm running out of space I'll delete something I've taped and haven't even watched yet instead of deleting this) LOL

Watching and listening to these videos again brought back all kinds of memories. P.S. Thanks again for posting the morning Thank You updates. I look forward to them every day!

Thanks, pasnthru. I hope you will like some of the video lists I have planned in the future. Next week will be original music, and then I have a couple of surprises coming after that. Stay tuned.

I'm glad you and others are appreciating the "Thank You" thread. I can't predict what will happen with "Thank You", but I am impressed that it is hanging in there and not dropping in spins. The stations that are playing it are for the most part pretty loyal, and increasingly are playing the song in the middle of the day rather than at 2AM. With this single, Matt has shown that radio audiences like/love his voice. It makes me happy he is getting so much exposure.

I thought I'd end last week's thread with a count of how many Youtube views each video received in a week. I think it is useful to see how much interest there still is in these videos some 18 months later. Which are the most popular videos? "You Found Me", which is the most current song, tops the list. Second most popular? "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman". Both receive more than 100 views per day. For one he was panned by the AI judges for poor song selection, and for the other, he almost left AI if not for the save. If you probe deeper with "You Found Me", you'll find half a dozen or so homegrown videos that use Matt's version of the song rather than the Fray's (for example, a Percy Jackson video with over 25,000 views).

For just these 10 videos, Matt received more than 5,000 views this week. This is much more than what is happening with his original music, so I think there may be an opportunity to point the folks watching these old videos to the original music.

Wow csprof that's great! How do we reach out to these people still watching these videos and point them to Matt's music? Maybe we can leave a link in the comment section to one of the better quality videos we have. I think Thank You would be a good one because we can also point them to itunes to buy it. Or we could direct them to the mattgiraudfans channel to watch a specific playlist. I could make a playlist with all of the best quality videos we have of Matt's originals? What do you think?

Matt is The American Idol!

I think a playlist on the mattgiraudfans channel might just be perfect. I think it should have the best videos of all of the original music, but sorted according to what we think will most likely bring in new fans. Right now, there is no single place to find a list of all Matt's originals, and if you just go to Youtube and search, these old AI videos pop up to the top. Even going to the mattgiraudfans channel can be a bit overwhelming.

If you and others can point to better videos of the originals on this week's thread, we can use that and the poll of favorite songs from a couple months ago to guide this process.

A good goal would be to have this together before he performs at the Grand Ole Opry on November 16, since people will be paying attention to him then.
