It’s impossible to have a ‘Best Of’ list unless you have been through everything that counts in that category and studied them properly, before grouping them all under an agreed criteria. That said, it’s also impossible to do a ‘favourites’ list really, as favourites can change from one second to the next depending on mood (well they do for me anyway). However I shall not let that stop me, so here is 80 videos I instinctively picked out as my favourites for this year. Of course this could be based on the track itself, the quality of the video, or in some cases both, but either way, this is a bunch of tunes that I love that came out this year, so I hope you enjoy some of them at least. I shall hopefully be posting some favourite albums and shows also before the year is up so keep an eye out.
