For the latest installment of Live4ever’s Essential Listening 2012 series, we’ve picked out some of our favourite music videos of the past year for you to enjoy. Some might be here for the quality of the promo, and some because we’re simply in love with the track itself, but all are included as they’ve proved to be among the most popular with our readers during the course of 2012.
From tomorrow, the business end of our annual lookback will begin with the Essential Gigs of 2012, when a select few of the many shows Live4ever has paid witness to these past twelve months will be highlighted with both live reviews and photo galleries.
