This is lovely by Aretha, I can't believe she 'Aretharised it'.
The purists will hate it, cos you know it was a little bit over the place, but I actually enjoyed hearing some Operatic Soul lol..

here try this I've replace the < with [, and the > with ] so that it displays
[div align="centre"]
[object width="425" height="350"][param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Y9v9Zpd4ulQ"][/param][param name="wmode" value="transparent"][/param][embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Y9v9Zpd4ulQ" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"][/embed][/object


1) you don't really need the div tag, because I think blogger will default it to the alignment of your text. But it's good 'housekeeping' to do so.

2) ensure that when you copy the code from you tube, it includes the [object] tag as well as it's closing, [/object]

3) sometimes when you click on the preview window in blogger and then return to edit it, the object tag gets removed.. (this happens sometimes, not all the time.

Hope this helps..
and feel free to remove this comment once you have the problem sorted.
If this isn't clear, I can do a step by step if it is required.

Ms Diva "Aretharised it" and i love it. I think i am more blown away by the fact that she had such a short time to prepare for it and she just killed it. LOL

Ehm....This embed thing...Let me take this one word at a time. LOL

Oh my, I am beginning to feel like the contrarian . . . although I respect Arethra Franklin, I have never really enjoyed her music. However, this performance of Nessun Dorma just melted my ice-cold heart. Were those tears welling up in my eyes as she plumbed the depths to find notes out of her normal range? How could I have not heard this before? I am going to go listen to it again now. Thanks Uzo!

An aside - I first heard this aria a long time ago on a Pirelli tire commercial. The wheels spun and instead of the car moving, the earth rotated more quickly on its axis.

@Patrice: Not the contrarian. Just have your own opinions and i love it. Didnt she do a fabulous job? Enjoy it girl. I have never seen the Pirelli ad....I am sure youtube has it.
