Top 12 of 2012: Music Videos

                  Most Artistic Videos of 2012

You can consider the music video an art form itself, though out of context from the music, probably couldn’t stand on it’s own or make any sense.
But what it can do is elevate a song to a whole other level, and then you show all your friends and they think it’s amazing, but what they were thinking was “oh geez, not another youtube video” but really, you just wanted to make their life better. And you did. A bad video can also ruin your very favorite song…forever. Here’s to the ones we loved, that made 2012 memorable and amazing.

12. St. Vincent: Cheerleader, directed by Hiro Murai

11. Danny Brown: Grown Up direct by Greg Brunkalla

10. Grimes: Oblivion, directed by Emily Kai Bock

9. Woodkid: Run Boy Run, directed by Yoann Lemoine / Iconoclast

8. Bjork:  Mutual Core, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang

7. Jay Z & Kanya West: Ni**as in Paris: Directed by Kanye West

6. Solange: Losing You, directed by Melina Matsoukas

5. Jack White: Sixteen Saltines directed by AG Rojas

Unexpected, Surreal and Amazing.

4. Sigur Ros – Valtari, by Christian Larsen

Some amazing videos have come from the SigurRos Valtari Mystrey Filmes Project. It was hard to pick just one.

3. PSY: Gangnam Style

You’re sick of it now, but you loved it once upon a time. Maybe you still do. I know I watched it 50 times.

2. Bacon Pancakes vs. NYC: A Genius.

1. M.I.A. – Bad Girls, directed by Romain Gavras

“A lot of pop artists claim to be crazy. But it’s fake craze. Her on the other hand… She’s crazy. She the only female artist with this natural pinache that comes across as effortless. She invests in projects no one believes in. Creatively, no other comtemporary pop artists are as interesting as she is.” –Romain Gavras on M.I.A.
