4. Bob Dylan, "Like A Rolling Stone"
Forty-eight years after it was written, "Like a Rolling Stone" inspired one of the year's most captivating videos. In the clip, directed by 27-year-old Vania Heymann, the viewer flips between sixteen channels – a home shopping show, a tennis match a romantic comedy, a financial news network, an episode of The Price Is Right – in which everyone appears to be lipsyncing Dylan's classic song. The fake TV personalities (which include rapper Danny Brown, Drew Carey and comedian Marc Maron) join in their own condemnation as they repeat Dylan's excoriating lyrics, and the song spins into a massive rolling satire of everything shallow and fake about mass media. When we finally end up on footage of Dylan singing the song in the Sixties, it's like finding a guide to finally get us out of this hell, even if it's probably where we deserve to spend all eternity.
