I Love YouTube











Since February 2005 when three former PayPal employees created the video-sharing website, YouTube, the way we view has utterly changed.

As well as its massive popularity as a way to access music videos (YouTube clip of South Korean Psy's Gangnam Style has been viewed 1.7 billion times)







 YouTube is now proving more popular than television as it allows selective viewing.
So for those of us who would rather do just about anything than sit through some of Ireland's so-called chat shows (sorry, RTE) the best bits can be viewed on good old YouTube.
 instead of having to sit through a full programme.

So when I heard that the Saturday Night Show had featured Linda Martin doing a version of
Daft Punk's  fabulous summer hit Get Lucky




and better still, she was getting roasted for her version, I had to see for myself.




If there's anything I like more than being able to select the bits of telly I want to watch, it's being able to select those bits of telly that show women of  a certain age refusing to 'go gentle into that good night.' 

Okay, it's not a great version of the song, but still....

You Go, Linda!
