There were some sweet music videos released in 2012. Way more than I had time to watch. Throughout the year I tried to stay on top of them and even posted some here on BENT.
From what I was able to view, here are the top five videos of 2012.
1. "Deja Vudu" by Aaron & The Sea
I posted this video earlier this year under the heading "The most intense music video I've ever seen." Nothing has changed— it still is. This video gives me the chills. The climax is crazy and the subtle visuals create a ton of drama. There's not much else to say. Aaron & The Sea struck video gold with this one. Just don't watch it before going to bed. (oh... and I know it was technically posted in 2011, but the album came out this year... so I'm counting it.)
