The Green New Dealers have taken Rahm Emanuel’s advice to heart: “Never let a crisis go to waste.” That is, use the occasion of a crisis to advance a pre-existing agenda, in this case, the remaking of the U.S. economy. Of course, they first had to manufacture — or, if one prefers, dramatically highlight — the crisis of climate change. And that’s a mission accomplished, at least as far as the left is concerned; a recent helpful headline from The Washington Post reads, “Americans increasingly see climate change as a crisis, poll shows.”Indeed, all the Democratic presidential hopefuls have signed on to some version of the Green New Deal; campaign pledges range from Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion to Bernie Sanders’ $16.3 trillion.

After MTV stopped playing them, and the internet wasn’t quite sure how to take them on, it became harder to engage with the music video as an art form. No longer could you plop yourself on the couch and watch an endless stream of videos. But as the years went on, the internet adapted, and now there’s a wealth of music videos in the world, from amateur geniuses to big-budget pros — the only through line is that artists are being more ambitious than ever before with their videos, and that’s exciting. Here are the ten best ones we saw this year. 10. Sheck Wes, “Mo Bamba” The concept of the “Mo Bamba” video is as simple as the song’s creation: Just Sheck and a few dozen of his homies mobbing around a Harlem basketball court with fat wads of cash. Oh, yeah, and Sheck’s leg is broken, so, hilariously, he’s wheeling around … [Read more...] about The 10 Best Music Videos of 2018
