My Favorite Music Videos of the Decade (Top 12....ish)
Before I get started on my Favorite Tracks and Albums of the decade in the next few days, I wanted to aggregate a few of my favorite music videos into a post. Some of my favorite directors got their start in music videos. The best music videos are those that add to power of the song, rather than distract from it and are mesmerizing enough to transport you to another place for a couple of minutes. All of these videos fit those criteria perfectly. Unsurprisingly, a few of these songs will also find their way onto my favorite tracks of the Decade list, but I don't want to ruin the surprise. Here they are, in no particular order:
Let me know your favorites!
Kanye West - Can't Tell Me Nothin' (Zach Galifinakis/Will Oldham Version)
Kylie Minogue - Come Into My World
Fatboy Slim - Weapon of Choice
LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends
Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar
Sigur Ros - Glosoli
Johnny Cash - Hurt
The White Stripes - Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground
