Remy: Imagine (There's No YouTube)

Remy imagines a world where politicians cave to angry mobs and dictate what we can see on YouTube.

As protests against "The Innocence of Muslims" video span the globe - and U.S. officials pressure YouTube's owner Google to restrict free expression - Remy imagines a world where politicians cave to angry mobs and dictate what we can see on YouTube.

Written and performed by Remy. Produced by Meredith Bragg.

About 2:30 minutes.

Lyrics:

Imagine there's no rainbows
piano playing cat
no selling Winnebagos
because some mob got mad

Imagine other people
dictating what we see on YouTube

Imagine no intruders
no making people scared
No Hasselhoff and burgers
would Honey Badger care?

Imagine other people
dictating what we see on YouTube

You may say I'm a dreamer
the situation's too hostile
I hope someday they'll join us
and we all can Gangnam Style

    Scary thing is that I have seen most of the videos featured in his song. Hope everyone keeps on blaspheming on youtube.
