Top Ten Music Videos of 2010

Just as prolific as an albums overall flow and continuity, the videos an artist makes for a track can and often times do make or break. If done right, videos can enhance and help you gain insight beyond mere music and lyrics, leaving a lasting impression. While if poorly executed, can leave you feeling vapid and listless about the track and sometimes even the album as a whole.
