The 15 Best Music Videos Of 2008

2008, for all its Debbie Downers, had some of the hottest dance music and videos! Since MTV won’t play them, WE WILL! From fantastical geometric landscapes to sonic glam ninjas, here are The Frisky’s picks for the Best Music Videos of the Year:

1. Empire of the Sun, “Walking On A Dream”: This Australian outfit is arguably the sweetest current glam band. Their decadence and their dance hooks are so catchy, we actually miss the ’80s!

So You Think You Can Dance Does Duffy’s “Mercy”

On last night’s So You Think You Can Dance, contemporary choreographer Mia Michael’s composed a dance for contestants Twitch and Katie that went along with one of our favorite songs of the summer — Duffy’s “Mercy”. The storyline for the dance was awesome — a clingy desperate woman trying to cling to her man. I loved the use of the doorway as a prop. Check out the clip above! Keep reading »

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of May 13th 2008

  • While Amy Winehouse has been cracking up, losing the deal to do the Bond theme song with the dapper Mark Ronson, and covering herself in mud instead of clothing, Welsh singer Duffy has been slaving away on the most sublime new soul album. Rockferry, Duffy’s debut record that takes its name from the town her daddy was born in, is a swanky collection of ’60s style R&B songs. Her first single, Mercy, is hip-shaking a-go-go at it’s greatest and it even gets hipsters to strut. We here at The Frisky are totally mad about this Mod! [Amazon: Duffy, Rockferry]

    Duffy’s Begging For Mercy

    Duffy, the 23-year-old Welsh singer-songwriter who has the number one album and song in the U.K., sounds like a combination between Dusty Springfield and Amy Winehouse. Thankfully, she looks more like Dusty than Amy. Even though her album, Rockferry doesn’t come out in the states until May, her first single, “Mercy,” is currently the iTunes Free Single of the Week. Download it now because 1) Duffy is actually her last name, and 2) she is the first female Welsh singer to have a number one single in the last 25 years. [Duffy on MySpace] Keep reading »
