I’m generally reluctant to post fan videos, mainly because there are so many of them that the criteria for selecting them would start to become awfully arbitrary, but this one is in a class by itself. Thanks to Freo for alerting us to it.

One of the things this video made me remember is that although we all care about David as a person and about his happiness and his life and all that, what we share with him is a love for his music. We need to remember that this is what David wants to be there for us for, and what he wants us to be there for him for.

Oh, and get a box of Kleenex ready.
