Ultimately, music videos are why we’re here. And 2013 had its fair share of big ones, from the nudity filled video for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” to basically everything Drake did. Still, there’s always a need to recap, and beyond the obvious, there’s that other Miley Cyrus clip, some local gems, and the requisite video featuring Thom Yorke’s erratic dancing.
