Happy Hump Day! I’m taking over the DJ and bartender duties while Don Durito is on walkabout. For today’s theme, I’m being a good environmentalist and recycling the songs I posted in the comments to Midweek Cafe and Lounge, Vol. 85, which were the finalists for Music Video of 2018 at the People’s Choice Awards. Yes, I love awards shows.
Selena Gomez, “Back to You”
Ariana Grande, “No Tears Left to Cry”
Childish Gambino, “This Is America”
Camila Cabello, “Never Be the Same”
I begin with the winner of not only Music Video of 2018, but also Song of 2018, Group of 2018, and Social Celebrity of 2018, BTS with “Idol.”
While I voted for “This Is America” by Childish Gambino, I can see why “Idol” won. Speaking of which, here is my personal favorite among the finalists.
My second favorite nominee was “No Tears Left To Cry” by Ariana Grande.
I’ll post the videos of the other two finalists plus videos of songs by the other music winners in the comments.
Once again, I’m concluding the diary proper by quoting Don Durito.
For those of you wondering how I and Neon Vincent are circumventing Sucuri to embed videos, here is an example of the embed code we use, so that you can replicate as wanted:
Just remember that each unique 11-digit video code in YouTube needs to be pasted in two separate locations within the embed code in order for your video to show up properly. So easy that I can do it!
With those instructions, feel free to post your favorite music videos in the comments.
