Band of Horses' Dancing Cowboys "Dilly" Is One Of VEVO's Best Videos of 2010

VEVO's created a playlist of their Best Videos of 2010, and Band of Horses' bizarre "Dilly" is among their picks. The clip was shot by Philip Andelman (whose work includes Beyonce's "Halo," John Mayer's "Waiting on the World to Change," and more videos by the Jonas Brothers, Lenny Kravitz, Jay-Z, and Ryan Adams); the song itself is frivolous and bouncy, but the video pertains to some dramatic matter. In it, a gang of bikers roam the Mojave Desert and harass a small town by performing choreographed dances and shooting off imaginary finger guns. The cops are called, and more choreography and bloodshed ensues.

Violence seems to be a theme here. Also among the honorees? More murderous videos like Delorean's mad dog "Real Love," M.I.A.'s terrifying "Born Free," Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs," and (duh) Lady Gaga's "Telephone," as well as lighter fare from Justin Bieber and Willow Smith, neither of whom knife or shoot anyone in "Baby" or "Whip My Hair."
