The Gummy Awards rollout continues today with Your Top 10 Music Videos Of 2011, and while there’s not a lot of surprises here, it’s a strong list capped by a beyond-worthy champion. There’s a little overlap with yesterday’s Top 10 Tracks list, but not a lot, and if you have any reason to complain than maybe you should have done more about it, huh? We’re definitely glad one video featuring a lone, quirky dancer beat the other video featuring a lone, quirky dancer (NO SPOILERS) but maybe we’ve said too much already.
