View Full Version : End Of Year Extravaganza II - Vote for People's Choice Favourite Video Of The Year

03-08-2014, 12:20 AM
The final category for which your votes are requested is People's Choice Favourite Video Of The Year - and please don't tell me your favourite's not listed here - you should have nominated it!

I was asked earlier in the year what's the difference between Best Overall Performance and People's Choice? The answer I came up with was that it's like comparing Jake Shimabukuro (http://youtu.be/ACdrOdXPOm4) with the pUKEs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFino6wOIxk). No question as to who's the virtuoso, but I know whose concerts I'd have the most fun at :cool: Or if you like, it's kind of like the difference at the Oscars between Best Director and Best Film.

Wotevs - you'll find the People's Choice Playlist (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLo6LNdV3F-sHMeu0vH5pVKfpXKZKvsONs) here, as well as direct links to each of the 10 videos listed below.

One thing from the nominations - you guys really love The Ukelites! But all the nominees put up great performances - I know 'cos I've listened again to them all as I've been compiling this list.

So please, please, please, have a look through and give our 10 nominees some ukey love and get voting! As usual, vote for one candidate only, via PM to me

I don't mind making my vote public here. I vote for We Tigers Minas de Cobre. I somehow missed this one in the Season. It is strange that such a words oriented person such as myself should vote for this instrumental, but the whole production is masterly. For two Europeans you certainly capture a Latin-American feel on this and the background video provides the lyrics for this in a purely visual way. It is a piece of music and a video that celebrates the dignity of work and the spirit of the everyday worker who is the base upon which the whole edifice of the modern world stands. A triumphal piece of communication in a three minute video! Well done you two!
