For those of you on my Facebook, (and if you're not, you can be! Just friend request me HERE and send me a message saying who you are) you are very familiar with my "Single Of The Day". Where I profile a song and video of a chosen artist. This whole thing started when I wanted to showcase Corey Hart's ridiculous acting in his videos. The first one was "I Am By Your Side" and then it continued with the videos I knew. But then I thought, wait, why don't I showcase all of them, maybe I'll see some that I havent heard and liked? After that was done (and there were some I liked) I chose another random artist (which was Gary Wright.. omg I forgot about that) and then I just continued and continued.. The artists which I covered this year were..

Corey Hart
Gary Wright
EMF
Just Luis
New Kids On The Block
Frankie Avalon
Mika
Whitney Houston
Faith Evans
Billy Joel
Erasure
Gilbert O'Sullivan
Climax
Level 42
Enrique Iglesias
Andy Bell
Chumbawumba
Arcadia
Depeche Mode
Neil Sedaka (current)


It's been fun, and It's something I look forward to doing rather than dreading. I've had some highlights, probably the biggest being Whitney Houston dying IN THE MIDDLE OF HER SPOTLIGHT. People were going after me asking if this was cursed. Luckily, Faith Evans didn't pass, so all is well. I have summarized my picks via the Best Ever Videos Of The Day! for the best ones, and Best Undiscovered Songs! for the best song I've never heard by an artist I'm familiar with.

Here's some highlights..

BEST EVER VIDEO OF THE DAY FOR 2012:



No question. Amazing song, awesome video.

BEST UNDISCOVERED SONG:



The discovery of Gilbert O'Sullivan has been quite a revelation for me. I love his early stuff, so simple and melodic. This is my favorite of his (close second is Matrimony)

BEST GUILTY PLEASURE:



I can't figure out which is worse, the over-sentimental song, or that video and the amazing wardrobe choices..

Finally, one more..

BEST VIDEO OF A SONG I PREVIOUSLY HATED:



I don't care for the song at all, but that video is awesome.
