Best Of The Month

Best Music Videos Of The Year

Whittling down a year's worth of music videos to a Top 10 is one of my least favorite things, but such are the responsibilities with Video Static.

Here's my Top Ten. And, since I'm allowed to break the rules, I also included 30 more videos worth a watch for one reason or another. (And, I'll remind you that the monthly Best Of list is guaranteed* good viewing.)

2016 Best Videos Of The Year - Top 10

  1. OK Go "The One Moment" (Damian Kulash, dir.)
  2. The Avalanches "The Was" (Chris Hopkins, Al Smithee, dir.)
  3. Jamie XX "Gosh" (Romain Gavras, dir.)
  4. Coldplay "Up & Up" (Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, dir.)
  5. Michael Kiwanuka "Black Man In A White World" (Hiro Murai, dir.)

Best Music Videos of August 2016

I do hate when the best video of the month is behind a Pay Wall and can't be on the YouTube playlist, but it's something we'll likely need to get used to. Otherwise, well played, everyone.

Best Music Videos of June 2016

Was it just me or were there way too many great videos this month? Or is such a thing possible?

I guess that's my way of apologizing if your greatness isn't on this list. (Although in the case of Kanye "Famous" it's purely because it's behind that TIDAL paywall)
