Phil Collins - I Don't Care Anymore

Phil Collins - I Don't Care Anymore.

Now here is an artist who seems to get it.

Phil Collins, much like Bryan Ferry, seems to understand what fans are looking for on YouTube (namely, their favorite artist's music on demand and in high quality) and how easy it is to give them what they want.

When you search for a song or an original music video on YouTube these days, much of the time you're in for disappointment. The video is often quickly yanked by some mega-label or an artists' rep.

If you do find an officially sanctioned song or video clip, more often than not the video's embedding feature will be disabled, making it damn near impossible to share.

So it's a pleasant surprise when you go looking for a high quality video and find an embeddable clip from the artist's own YouTube page. Well done, Phil and Bryan. Let's hope more artists follow your lead, for the fans' sake, and their own.
