Well, it’s that time of the year again I suppose. Or, well – well, if we’re being technical, about a month ago was that time of the year. Time to pump out the top lists. I’m not going to go onto a tangent about why we love rankings like these, or making them, or what have you, because I’ve read too many top lists that start off in that exact fashion. Instead, because it is my style, I’m making excuses. Frankly, it’s hard to put these things together, particularly if you’re neurotic like me. I’m an unpaid staff of one, and honestly I mostly do this for myself so I can remember what music I listened to this year. This is very, very late. I feel the shame. To make up for it, I’ve prepared this very nice list of music videos for you all.
Viewer Warning! Several of these videos are Not So Safe For Work – assuming you work in an environment where the occasional breast or copious booty-shaking on your computer screen could be considered inappropriate.
