It’s entirely possible that the week’s best piece of music-related video was the spaceship-prison-breakout scene from Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 set to Jay & The Americans’ “Come A Little Bit Closer.” If that was a music video, it would probably be on the top of this list. But it’s not. This week’s picks are below.
