Every year I select five videos (out of the many thousands posted on YouTube) that have provided me with inspiration and motivation.

Because video tech keeps getting less expensive, there are many more to choose from, so I'm doing this post before year's end. Just in time for Thanksgiving, in fact.

Note: the performance shown in #2 is from 2008, but it was only posted as a video this year. It's a must-see/must-hear.
