PostSubject: Top 10 videos of Matt Giraud originals   Sat Oct 30, 2010 4:27 pm

This week's list provides links to the videos of Matt's originals and two singles that have the most views on Youtube. These videos are not necessarily the best we have for these songs, but they are the ones that got the most attention. Usually they are from the first time the songs were performed. Interestingly, two more recent acoustic radio performances have been viewed more because they sound even better than the concert videos. This ranking does not capture the popularity of the songs since the view count is higher for older videos, and for videos picked up by Ainow or MJs.

If you view these videos, please add comments and "like" them. In a subsequent list, I am thinking about putting together the best videos for each of Matt's original songs (if we can agree on that!), in hopes of having a single place to show potential future fans what Matt's new music is all about. So, in the comments, please provide a link to any better videos of these songs and an explanation of why you prefer them.

Thank you again, csprof! Can't have too many Matt videos! Please check the links to 15 and 16. They weren't working for me.

I really like that best videos idea! We've had some fantastic quality ones lately, and that's the only reason I'm surviving without the EP/album!

I thought I'd make a few suggestions for the youtube playlist of Matt originals. I'm sure there are more but these are top of mind.


The BEST ebbber video of a Matt original IMO ("Motel", Battle Creek from sgr):




Other favorites:

"I Miss You Tonight", The Listening Room:


"4AM", Kalamazoo Concert Band Show from sgr:

I think we should add some of the acoustic performances from radio and TV interviews as well...


Thank You - WNIC...






Brand New Day - Grand Rapids ...







Here is studio version of Thank You...





I also have the acoustic Baby Girl performance from a TV interview in Michigan that I could upload to youtube.

Thanks, mattyfan and Jenna!

I will have to do some "research" (that is, watch these videos), and then I'll come up with a new list. I am going to order them according to the votes of what songs should be on the EP from August. I think I want to start the playlist with mostly band versions of the songs, since they are more representative of how the recorded music or a concert would sound. I think we could do a separate playlist of acoustic versions (guitar or piano/keyboard only), but let's do that second. In a few cases, the acoustic version may be preferable, like the recent "If I Say Hallelujah". The band version and vocal harmony sounds richer, but that piano solo from Bay City is so moving I think it trumps the other versions. Like Jenna, I also prefer the piano version of "Breaking in a Broken Heart".

Can anyone suggest the best band versions of "Baby Girl" and "Gimme a Break"? I believe I have the other songs covered from mattyfan's and Jenna's suggestions, or from my own previous "research". Smile

Yeah I would have to cut that one down so it's just the song but that is no big deal!

I tallied the votes from August for what should be on Matt's EP, and counted the following:

1. I'll Hold Onto You (20 votes)
2. I Miss You Tonight (19 votes)
3. Brand New Day (16 votes)
3. Motel (16 votes)
5. Baby Girl (13 votes)
5. If I Say Hallelujah (13 votes)
7. I'll Always Remember You (12 votes)
8. 4am (9 votes)
9. This Love Ain't Meant to Be (7 votes)
9. Breaking in a Broken Heart (7 votes)
11. Whatever it Takes (6 votes)
12. Gimme a Break (4 votes)

"Go On and Sing, Boy" did not receive any votes, and "I'll See You in a Little While" was introduced after we made the list. Did I get this list right?

Tomorrow I'll come up with a preliminary list of videos and an ordering for the playlist based on suggestions so far. Please let me know if you have any other thoughts on this.

[EDIT: Jenna suggested two changes, so I have updated the list of videos.]

How about this set of videos? Are these the best we have? As I said in a previous post, I am trying to pick ones that are representative of a CD or concert. I know some of the acoustic versions are amazing, but we can do that as a separate list. I hung onto acoustic versions in a few cases.

Here are some strategies I used in coming up with the list:
* I put the singles first since people can buy them.
* I put "I Miss You Tonight" next since Matt wants it to be his next single. Otherwise, I used the ordering from my previous post based on votes from August.
* I usually picked versions with less talking and better sound.
* I used a lot of Bay City videos because the energy at that concert was awesome and the band arrangements were the best I've heard.
* I used the "If I Say Hallelujah" acoustic video where you can watch Matt's face as he gets completely lost in the music.
* I used an acoustic version of "Breaking in a Broken Heart" just because I like it much better. Smile

This was really a team project because the videos were taken by a lot of you over lots of concerts. Thanks to all of you who go to these concerts and bring back such amazing videos! And thanks to Jenna and mattyfan for your suggestions of which videos to select. Please let me know if I should replace some of these!

I'm going to track view counts and see if creating a playlist and pointing people to it will make a difference in how many people see these.

Some of Matt's most magical moments have happened when it is just him and the piano/keyboard, or him and Matt Young on the guitar. Here's an attempt at an alternate acoustic playlist of Matt's originals. I've organized it with the guitar versions first, followed by the incredible keyboard performances at Listening Room, and then piano versions. What do you all think? Should I replace any of these with something else? Should I change the order? Should I leave any of these out?

Here is the playlist!


http://www.youtube.com/user/mattgiraudfans?feature=mhum#p/c/D9D25A7A59BDFEC6

If you want to point someone to Matt's original music this playlist would be your best bet! We would like to use this playlist to introduce Matt's music to as many people as we can. Spread the word anywhere people are discussing Matt ie...MJ's, AINow, comment section on other Matt utube videos, twitter, facebook, myspace, Idol Forums, or even to people in your real life! Thanks to everyone who had a hand in helping make this list including all the wonderful people who created the videos! Without all you videographers we would not have Matt's incredible music to listen to! Csprof you are incredible with all your organizational and graphing skills! cheers


I will create the acoustic playlist later today! Of course these playlists will continue to change as we get new music and videos! I will keep these 2 playlists at the top for easy access. They will always be one and two except for when Matt has something new. After about a week or so I will move them back to the top. They will never be lower than 3 and 4.
