For the love of music

In the midst of my business this weekend, I caught some of my beloved VH1 Top 20 Countdown for the first time in ages.

And I found a lot to like.  

Bruno Mars: "The Lazy Song." ... The choreography evokes something from an OK Go video. I love it, and I couldn't take my eyes away. I mean how many videos feature people wearing monkey masks -- and putting their hands in their pants?

Adele: "Rolling in the Deep." ... Powerful song. Powerful video. I was captivated by the set, the shadows, the floor filled with glasses half full ...

Sara Bareilles: "Uncharted." ... A video featuring Sara's best pals, aka some of my favorite artists -- aka Ben Folds, Ingrid Michaelson, Adam Gardner and Ryan Miller, Tegan and Sara, Ryan Tedder -- not to mention Josh Groban, Vanessa Carlton, Jennifer Nettles, Adam Levine and that lip-syncing kid. I was hooked in seconds.

Bonus video: Colbie Caillat performing an acoustic of "I Do," arguably my favorite song on the radio right now, for our beloved WTMX.
