Best Music Videos of 2010: IFC

Remember those long gone days when having a music video was considered cutting edge?

These days, of course, the music video is a rather retro art form. But it’s still looking pretty arty to us.

Short or long form… Mild nudity or nearly pornographic… These are the best music videos of the year, at least according to the folks at IFC:

1. Kanye West’s “Runaway”
2. El Guincho’s “Bombay”
3. Baths’ “Lovely Bloodflow”
4. Mark Ronson & The Business Intl’s “The Bike Song”
5. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ “Game Gets Old: The Trilogy”
6. Grinderman’s “Heathen Child”
7. Arcade Fire’s “Suburbs”
8. Die Antwoord’s “Zef Side”
9. R√∂yksopp’s “Senior Living”
10. Rachel Goodrich’s “Light Bulb”
