It’s the time of the year where everyone is posting their favorite things of 2015 so it seemed appropriate to begin posting some of mine. There are only two lists I’m doing this year, not that I couldn’t find anything to choose as favorites but I found myself doing different things at the same time, multitasking if you will, and looking back, I made it difficult to keep track of everything, as I have in the past. This will be the first list I’m posting, and it’s dedicated to music videos. With MTV no longer an influence, YouTube is the place to go to find out what is and isn’t good. What makes these videos work for me? Being “of quality”, things are well edited and put together, and sometimes it can be a sense of humor that carries this nicely to where I want to watch and listen to the end.
Keep in mind that I did not watch every single music video in 2015, that’s pretty much an impossibility. These are those that came to my attention and sometimes I came across these along the way, sometimes via social media, other times when I clicked to something else and this was next door, leading me to give it a shot. I didn’t intent to have a specific number but as if by magic, the list below consists of 20 different artists. It is not a “Top 20”, it’s listed in alphabetical order so don’t looking for my view of what I felt was *the* best video of the year, you’re not going to find it. Nonetheless, these are my picks.
