@Andy Mink posted a comment about a Queen Rabbit Hole.
I ended up watching the side by side of Live Aid with Queen side by side with the remake for the movie Bohemian Rhapsody

This is interesting. Anyone know what this is from? The narrator, who only has a brief line, is Warren Miller. Or someone who sounds just like him.
Phil Hill goes back to visit Ferrari years after racing for them.

Anybody else watch Rick Beato music history/analysis videos? He does a lot of fun rock music appreciations. Watching them can lead down a pretty deep rabbit hole. He also does some excellent interviews. Here's an hour+ one where he talks to a writer about how the music and online publishing businesses are on a race to the bottom. Songs, articles, etc. are getting shorter, dumber, quicker in a race for the best click bait. In fact, they jokingly describe how some music execs think 16 second songs for tik tok is the future of their business:

One of my favorites. He is an encyclopedia of stuff I don't understand but I can, and have, listened to him for hours. The other one I really enjoy is The Charismatic Voice. She's a legit opera singer and voice coach who breaks down the voices of singers of all types of music. He expressions would make a Disney princess jealous. Highly recommended.

This is a very interesting 2022 video where youtube musicologist Rick Beato himself is being interviewed in front of an audience that wants to know how he developed a successful youtube channel.
Quick takeaways:
- Beato works 100 hrs per week to make two videos and one livestream show each week,
- he never knows exactly why one of his video proves to be more popular than another,
- he shares info on which youtube metrics are important - it's not just # of views, but duration of views, or how fast you gain views - scoring well in these factors gets you featured with more prominence on youtube
- if he knew then what he knows now, he might never have started a channel because it's so much work, too much for a 59 yr old.
