:: TOP 5 MUSIC VIDEOS OF 2013 ::

After sharing our best 20 albuns of the year, 10 best EP's and memorable moments of 2013, we selected, with a little help, the top 5 music videos of 2013.

Here's a fact: 2013 was a innovative and groundbreaking year in respect of music videos. Arcade Fire and Kanye West made some awesome interactive videos, Pharrel made a 24-hour-videoclip, on Bob Dylan's video for "Like a Rolling Stone" we can switch between 16 different channels with different videoclips and Miley Cyrus did this..

Here's another fact: we're no movie or video expert... so we asked Gonçalo Pelágio (filmmaker) if he could select the best music videos of the year. We were not disappointed..

Don't forget to check Pelágio's work right here and his top 5 videos below. Hope you like it. Enjoy.

5º: Toro Y Moi -Rose Quartz
