Sound Selects: Premier Videos of 2013

FACT: In this day & age, a good music video will do more to perpetuate your career than any other single-handed effort.

Sure, I grew up on MTV – but I caught the back-end of an arguably great era. I saw a couple great summers of TRL, but I also had to witness the travesties of Blind Date, Jersey Shore, and the like. Let’s just say me watching MTV was why Kurt Cobain started doing heroin in the first place.

It took a long time and a series of musical preference changes for me to realize that music VIDEO could stand as an art-form all its own.

That being said, these videos showcase the reasons why I choose to continue to stay relevant in modern music culture. People have things to say. Let them speak.

Thanks for listening.
