Last week you got our Top 25 Singles of 2010, now we close out the year on the last day of 2010 with our favorite videos of the past twelve months, sadly bringing our brief list season to a close. And as soon as we recover from what's sure to be a massive hangover after we ring in the new year with Passion Pit and co. at the Wellmont Theatre tonight, we'll be launching into a month long new bands feature in January, so you'd be wise to brace yourself for a relentless onslaught of amazing new music over the next 30 or so days. As for the videos of 2010, we've got to throw director(s) of the year honors to DANIELS, who emerged in 2010 as some of the most exciting new filmmakers in the game via their incredible videos for The Hundreds In The Hands and FM Belfast (not to mention a series of amazing shorts). Elsewhere, Special Problems established themselves as the best new international directors, and Daniel Wolfe stunned with his series of videos for Plan B's The Defamation of Strickland Banks. Then there were a bunch of other great videos, but it's New Year's Eve and we're trying to hit the streets so we'll leave you to explore those below. Happy New Year all, and here's to crushing it in 2011.

By now you've probably gathered that we love lists. And it's no secret we love singles. So without further ado, we bring you our Top 25 singles of 2010. Only prerequisites are that they had to have been released in 2010 (either as a single or on an album) and that they can't have been released on Neon Gold so as to avoid any in-house favoritism, a policy we should probably extend to other facets of this blog but - let's be real - probably won't. Streams and downloads (where allowed) available via Soundcloud.
