Best Music Videos of 2019

My favorite video of the year isn't really a video, at least in the current sense of the format: It's for multiple songs and only available on Netflix: Thom Yorke "ANIMA," directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, and it's beautiful and powerful and a must watch. And another non-traditional favorite is Melanie Martinez "K-12," which is a film in the form of an album suite of music videos directed by Martinez herself (with co-director Alissa Torvinon) and is an impressive example of distinctive world-building for an equally distinctive artist.

In the more traditional lane, here's 25 videos from 2019 from all genres and styles to help celebrate a shortlist of the best and biggest videos of the year.
