When was the last time you actually sat through an entire music video? Thought so. It’s not like the old days, when an afternoon on the couch meant hours of non-stop music videos not of your choice. That’s the thing, though. With YouTube, we’re not just spoiled, but desensitized to knowing that we can watch anything, whenever and wherever. (Well, depending on your cell phone.) Because of this, it’s easy to skip things most of the time, knowing that you can just catch it later.
Of course, that “later” more often than not becomes “never” until, hey, you’re here reading a roundup post like this and thinking, I should comment and tell this guy he’s wrong, and that I’ve watched everything I come across, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Save yourself the trouble and instead click ahead and experience — or revisit — the best crop of videos from this year. It’s eggnog time, folks. No better hour than now.
