[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Grab a bucket of popcorn, because you’re going to want to spend your entire break going through this list of music videos that you’re sure to enjoy. From well-known artists like Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande to music groups such as Panic! at the Disco and The Weeknd, it’s a guarantee we’ve taken the first step to curing your Netflix addiction.

“Blank Space” by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has outdone herself. The video for “Blank Space” is creative and leaves me wanting more. Swift embodies the idea of a “man-eater” successfully with exaggerated facial expressions and acting skills. It’s no wonder the video went viral.

“Master of Tides” by Lindsey Stirling

It’s allure is unsurprising, merging the elements of cinematography and choreography to create a dynamic video that’s absolutely incomparable, at least not in quality. the slow-motion and varying angles mesh together with the sound of suspenseful violin perfectly in sync. If only it was longer.

“This is Gospel” by Panic! at the Disco

It’s not only a good song, but a fantastic music video.The unconventional choreography is stunning. The artistry behind this music video shows how far the band has come. From the meaning behind the song to the pain Brendon Urie acts out, this video is a thing of beauty.

“Come Back Home” by 2NE1

It’s almost uncommon for a k-pop music video to be completely mind-blowing, but “Come Back Home” is an exception. The 2NE1 girls are the stars of a mini sci-fi movie, in which a run-down, futuristic society offers solace to people by putting them in a “Virtual Paradise,” essentially, a dystopian world full of rules and regulations and no individuality. The girls rebel against this alternate reality by opting to destroy it; however it is unclear if they succeed. With advanced computer graphics, “Come Back Home” is one of the best produced videos of the year.

“Heroes (we could be)” by Alesso ft. Tove Lo

Heroes (we could be) is a great song by Alesso ft. Tro Love and finally released a music video to go along with the song. The video components go great with the song and, in a way, leave a dark and mysterious setting. The ending leaves you confused and guessing about what just happened. Overall, the video itself is well produced and makes for a great video of 2014.

“Take Me to Church” by Hozier

I choose ” Take Me to Church ” as music video of the year because it helps you to better understand the song, and not only that but you get a real feel for what the message behind the song is. It teaches a good lesson for people of this day and age.

“Love Me Harder”by Ariana Grande ft. The Weeknd

This music video is a great piece of visual arts, despite “The Weekend’s” ridiculous hair. Ariana Grande does a great job on putting her emotions and movement to go along with the song she has produced. The video does a great job with scenery and really sets the mood with the serene and desolate locations. It leaves you captivated in a way where you lose focus on anything other than the video playing.
