#21?

Spin magazine just released a list of their 20 Best Music Videos of 2008. Strangely missing, in my opinion (I could really do without Vampire Weekend's #19 spot bid, or Radiohead's #5) is Lykke Li's video for "I'm Good, I'm Gone". I love her giant, fluid outfit, the creepy little twins and the musclebound lasses, but the video most appeals to one of my pet causes, ageism. I love that she makes the elderly people in her video relevant, active, and able to participate in popular culture.




Also overlooked are Justice's videos for "D.V.N.O." and "D.A.N.C.E." --- both, any graphic designer/80's TV Fan/ T-shirt lover's wet dream... !
