Presented in no particular fucking order, I give you MITNG’s best music videos of 2012.
A warning: The list is long and lawd knows it could’ve gone longer.
Even as I write this, I’m thinking of people that I may have left out and it pains me, but it’s not like they look at this blog anyway. This year was a fabulous year for music videos. Just tons and tons of creative music, put to equally creative images from some of music’s heavy hitters like, Diplo, M.I.A, TheeSatisfaction,Van She, MEZO, Justice, Danny Brown, Coco Rosie, Woodkid, St. Vincent, School of Seven Bells and so on and so forth. Folk’s, the art of real video making is not dead and this list is evidence of that. A great video doesn’t always mean that it’s a great video, but just that the marriage between the music and visuals came together well. Lastly, let us not forget the talented directors/cinematographers whose inspired images have and always will mold mainstream Hollywood, whether Hollywood likes to admit it or not…there ends the lesson.
If you like what your about to see and hear, take a second and click through some of these links, your day may just get a little brighter as a result. PEACE, MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
