My list is completely my opinion, and I'd love to see lists of your own! I felt like these six music videos stood out from the rest this year and either made me laugh, cry, dance, or all three!
6. Flying Lotus- Never Catch Me (Ft. Kendrick Lamar)
With his album You’re Dead!, Flying Lotus set out to find the "blissful and silly" moments in death. So while a church mourns two children in this video, the kids rise from their coffins with smiles, dance away, and drive off in a hearse. It’s the same old ending, with a new beginning.
5. Jamie xx - Sleep Sound
Jamie xx can do no wrong. With the help of the Manchester Deaf Centre, directors Sofia Mattioli and Cherise Payne capture a group of hearing-impaired people both young and old in this gorgeous examination of what it means to experience music using little more than your imagination.
4. Jenny Lewis - Just One of the Guys
So you've got Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart in drag and you're going to tell me this isn't a top video?! Pah! Not only is Jenny's new album and single catchy as hell, the video is hilarious!
3. Lykke Li - No Rest for the Wicked
This stunning video traces a doomed relationship with a tattooed bad boy who’s run out of town. It’s equal parts Brokeback Mountain and Terrence Malick, an uneasy calm before the fall.
2. Shamir - On the Regular
If only all of us could sum up our personalities as attractively as Shamir does in his video for "On the Regular." It's all bugged-out eyes, big smiles, and brightly-colored balls for this new talented rapper/singer.
1. Sia - Chandelier
I don't know what rock you've been hiding under if you haven't at least heard of this video yet.
