10 Top Music Videos of the Year

Here are 10 great YouTube music videos from this year. With the World Cup this year in Brazil, I had to start with this catchy song by Santana and Wyclef. Next up is one of my favorite videos of the year, a catchy song that took Africa by storm. I had to include this beautiful version of Rodriguez’s “Sugar Man” by Dave Matthews because of my emotional attachment to it. As Dave points out before he sings the song, we all grew up in South Africa in the 70’s on this song. It was only South Africans (and Australians) who knew about Rodriguez until the documentary “Searching For Sugar man” was such a hit last year. Michael Franti’s powerful call for peace between police and communities is very moving and then there are always the Playing For Change peeps who make the most wonderful videos. The last few are videos of some of my favorite songs of the year. Hope you enjoy these and a Happy Healthy New Year to you.
