As usual, we take a look back and list our personal highlights of the past year. What records did we enjoy most, what songs in particular were on constant repeat (on our stereo and/or in our heads) and what videos have we gazed upon a million times (rough guess) throughout 2012?

Today we kick off our Best of 2012 series with the best videos of 2012. We care a lot about a visual accompaniment of a song: it’s the one thing (take note: remixes can’t) that can give a song a boost and make you “experience” in a more visual way. Sometimes videos are so great that we actually start liking the song more because we know the story behind it or just have something to visualize it with.

That being said - here are -in no particular order (but if you’d ask Lana Del Rey’s video for Ride would be our Number One)- our favorite Videos of 2012.
