Dubai Fountain – “Time to Say Goodbye” – Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman


Update – Warner Music Group, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to block this video in certain countries due to the music in the background. The mentality of these half-wits is beyond me. Nobody is going to rip off the background music to this video in order to get a copy. If anything, this video, and others like it, can only serve to enhance their revenues. I’m speaking as someone who in their lifetime has spent in excess of $50000 on purchasing music legitimately, and who – up until today – doesn’t have a single piece of music that they haven’t paid for. Today, that all changes. I’ll never pay a single cent for any of their product again. If something comes out on any Warner label that I fancy, I’ll no longer buy the CD or pay for it on itunes, I’ll simply rip it off. Same goes to sonybmg for blocking some of the other videos in some countries. I guess this is the one people will be most interested in! Canon 5D mkii and the 17mm TS-E.
