Watch at youtube (^) (not recommended):

Youtube.com requires nonfree software (Javascript code) for normal use of the site; after changes Google made in August 2017, nothing is visible in a typical Youtube page without running its nonfree Javascript code.
However, it is ok to refer to the same videos on an offshoot of invidio.us; just make sure not to choose one that is "protected" by Cloudflare, since that sends its own nonfree software. This way of referring is probably fail-safe: it may cease to work, but it will probably not start leading people to run nonfree software. You don't need a special "platform" to post an audio or video on the Web. You can post an audio or video file on any web site. Just put up the WebM file and link to it as if it were an ordinary page. All graphical browsers can handle that.

I suggest that you don't watch the video with the browser, but download it with yt-dlp instead and play it from your hard drive, with a specialised program, particularly if you want to watch it more than once, because: So if you are concerned with global heating, pollution and exhaustion of Earth's resources, you should download all the videos you want to watch.
Véronique Sanson - Rien que de l'eau

Elle, rappelle-toi comme elle est belle
et touche-la, elle sent le sel,
c'est un don miraculeux.
Elle, c'est la naissance de la gabelle,
c'est l'oubliée des infidèles
à la terre des futurs vieux.

Rien que de l'eau, de l'eau de pluie,
de l'eau de là-haut
et le soleil blanc sur ta peau
et la musique tombée du ciel
sur les toits rouillés de Rio.

Toi, tu te caches dans les ruelles,
es comme un païen qui appelles
les dieux pour qu'elle t'inonde.
Elle, oh, tu sais, elle a le temps,
elle est là depuis mille ans,
elle te suit comme une ombre.


Elle, en attendant l'orage,
elle te pardonnera ton âge
et l'argent de tes cheveux.
Elle, tu ne peux pas te passer d'elle,
tu ne vivras jamais sans elle,
tu n'auras que de l'eau de tes yeux.



She, remember how beautiful she is
and touch her, she smells of salt,
it's a miraculous gift.
She is the birth of the gabelle [salt tax],
she is the forgotten of the infidels
in the land of future old people.

Nothing but water, rainwater,
water from up there
and the white sun on your skin
and music fallen from the sky
on the rusty roofs of Rio.

You, you hide in the alleys,
you are like a pagan who calls
the gods so that she floods you.
She, oh, you know, she has the time,
she has been there for a thousand years,
she follows you like a shadow.


She, waiting for the storm,
she will forgive your age
and the silver of your hair.
She, you can't do without her,
you will never live without her,
you will only have the water of your eyes.
