If You've Got Nothing to Say... Share YouTube Videos
There's so much wrong in the world these days, but fortunately, there's also so much right! It just all happens to be on YouTube. Here are some of my favorite music videos from the last year or so. They've made for great entertainment around the office and during "pregames", so I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
The most important video comes first. Let's hope this reggae track goes viral enough to strike a nerve with young people around the world. Ari Lesser - Boycott Israel
One of the hottest songs and videos on this list, for all the right reasons and a very wrong one, too. This Aussie has carved out her own style and seems to be blowing up. Iggy Azalea - Work
Cute and funny with great production... my new Gangnam Style. I got in really early, and since then it has exploded. Ylvis - The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)
Best rap track. It just doesn't get any better. A$AP Rocky - F**kin' Problems (ft. Drake & Kendrick Lamar)
Best booty shaking... also an incredible track. Director Eric Wareheim also has other crazy collaborations with Major Lazer. Major Lazer - Bubble Butt (feat. Bruno Mars, 2 Chainz, Tyga & Mystic)
Great songs/videos from every Jewish Canadian's favorite homeboy. Drake - Started from the Bottom
Drake - HYFR (Hell Ya Fucking Right)
And yes, Cash Money Records is the name of the game. Drake - The Motto (ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga) Tyga - Faded (ft. Lil Wayne)
You shouldn't need any convincing to watch this catchy phenomenon featuring the hottest girl in the word. Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines (Unrated Version (ft. Pharrell Williams & T.I.)
Young kids rapping like the pros in a well-produced video? You shouldn't miss this. Y.N.RichKids - Hot Cheetos & Takis
The title speaks for itself, and this video deserves way more views. Zombie Style - Gangnam Style
A great Mexican electronic musical ensemble introduced to me by my friend Josh. Nortec Collective presents: Bostich+Fussible "Tijuana Sound Machine"
The most surprising collaboration by two of my favorite dudes. Eddie Murphy - Red Light (ft. Snoop Lion)
I just couldn't decide which is the best Bieber video to put forth, so let's just call it a three-way tie ;) Justin Bieber - Boyfriend Justin Bieber - As Long As You Love Me (ft. Big Sean) Justin Bieber - Beauty and a Beat (ft. Nikki Minaj)
The reigning King of Pop is finally back with music of his own. The first 5 minutes of the video itself pretty much suck, but I love the cinematography, choreography and super-impressive vocals of the second half. Justin Timberlake - Mirrors
And while we're on Justin, this is also pretty epic: Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake - History of Rap 1 & 2
For some quality entertainment, make sure you check you Epic Rap Battles of History. They're brilliant, funny and quiet explicit. Here are my favorites: Adam vs Eve Moses vs Santa Claus (ft. Snoop Dogg) Gandhi vs Martin Luther King Jr.
And of course, an honorable mention goes out to The Lonely Island, since nearly every one of their videos deserves to be here.
