Ten Music Video Highlights of 2010
People that know me know that I’m not really a technical person — if you want a Best of 2010 MVs, you go and bug LinzerDinzer TV for a list — I go by feeling and news (sometimes). Mostly by feeling.
So this is a list of ten music videos that marked one way or the other 2010.
10. Arcade Fire – Ready to Start
There’s been a huge boom on really great well edited music videos. However, it’s great to catch a video from one of the best contemporary bands that really captures the essence and energy of their live shows. Directed by Charlie Lightening.
Runner up: Muse – Resistance, directed by Wayne Isham. Epic video is epic — typical Isham style, but Ready to Start is better put together.
9. Monkey Majik – Forever
Chosen as the single to promote Monkey Majik’s 10th anniversary compilation — Forever is such a great song, the video totally plays to the little heart. I think it even works better than Canada’s attempt to help Haiti with Waivin’ Flag [MV] (though that was a pretty good song by K’naan, it got overplayed for this and the World Cup), and it totally beats the remake of We Are the World [MV].
Of course, the group also earned their Guinness World Record for Longest On Air Commercial , for the CM they did for this Best of Album… which lasts 30min.
