Yup, it’s that time again. Get your speakers/headphones ready and kick back with the 3rd Annual Year in Music Videos list. Let’s just jump right into January, shall we?
For a guy who professes to be not much of a music video guy, Andy picked a winner for his first video post during my baby-break, as Fionn Regan – Be Good or Be Gone is a charmer of a clip, even though it breaks my cardinal rule of ‘don’t obscure the song’. The various locales really shine in this one.
Silversun Pickups – Lazy Eye really stuck with me (so much so that I’ve gone back to watch it multiple times over the year), even though the song itself doesn’t do much for me. I guess I’m just a sucker for teen love stories.
U2 – Window in the Skies is the kind of slick work you’d expect from U2, and while I think in some ways it’s a rather lazy video, the montage is superbly put together.
And, well…that really does it for January. I’m telling ya, I was so unprepared for the arrival of our twins would pretty much shatter my posting process, but if there was only going to be three clips of note, it’s a pretty good list.
