1. It's a great song. First time I saw it, it had about 40K hits.

Now it is over 18 million.

He performed it on Ellen too. That was really cool.

He has a really fun song called Thrift Shop too. Not so deep, but really fun.

7. Just fyi....

I tried to find the previous posts about this using advanced search and only found a couple. I actually heard about this video here a while back. There were a couple threads that got a good number of hits, though I think it deserved more then, and I am glad some folks who missed it are seeing it now

I think it is an important song because it is another chance to reach more people on a personal level.

I didn't want you to read anything into the low response here. I think it is mainly because it's not so new anymore, but I do think it's worth sharing again.
