Interactive dance clips; dangerous escalators; one-shot wonders; murderous muppets; product whores – our favorite 11 music videos from this year cover a lot of ground.
It’s getting to be that time of year where we look back at 2011’s trends and decide which ones we liked and which we didn’t. One musical trend that can’t be ignored is the saxophone – it showed up everywhere. Lisa Simpson would be thrilled.
