It's the end of the year, which means we are all going to reflect on the best things that happened this year before the New Year starts. Coolest music videos? Yes, I can do that for you.
They might not be the best songs of the year, but as pieces of creative work we reckon these 10 clips stand head and shoulders above the rest. Kooky, heartfelt, genuine, funny, random and above all memorable – you’ll find something in each to enjoy.
M.I.A. -- Bad Girls.
Why? Drag Racing, extreme stunts, synchronized dance moves, M.I.A stunnin' on a tilting car like that Bad Girl she is. In Love.
Jack White - I'm Shakin
Why?: Well, what’s better than one Jack White? How about two?
Flying Lotus-- Tiny Tortures.
Why?: If you’re Elijah Wood, is there anything cooler than having random objects fly around your bedroom & turning you into an epic cyborg? Probably not.
Lana Del Ray - Ride
Why? It's 10mins long and it's almost an epic short movie.
Skrillex -- Bangarang.
Why? Because everyone wanted to hijack an ice cream truck when they were kids.
I still kind of do. Dirty fantasy come true.
Big Bang-- Fantastic Baby
Why? Owls, riots, molotov cocktails. They even sing "Boom Shakalaka". Sums up to badass-ery to me.
The War on Drugs -- Brothers
Why? Because it's flawless. BAM!
Passalacqua -- Sirens.
Why? Sexual undertones galore, but in a smart, tasteful manner. It's probably the most unusual video out of all it's counterparts, and it's likely to give you nightmares. All that a great music video requires.
Hot Chip -- Don't Deny Your Heart.
Why? This is the best game of video game futbol ever.
