The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Winner of the Best Audiobook (Fiction) at the New York Festival Radio Awards 2020, this outstanding reading of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian classic, The Handmaid’s Tale, is sure to send shivers down your spine. Narrated by Elisabeth Moss, the star of the Hulu television adaptation, The Handsmaid’s Tale tells the story of Offred, a woman subjugated by the patriarchal, totalitarian state of Gilead. The novel jumps between the past and present to recount the tales of Offred and her fellow Handmaids’ attempts to resist the regime, in a thought-provoking commentary on women’s rights, racism, religion, and how quickly and terrifyingly democracy can slip from our fingers.

As we round up our own reflections for the past year, it’s hard to turn a blind eye to the creativity we saw shine through in 2017. While we’ve lost many incredible musicians and artists during the year, the music industry also saw amazing talent and drive spanning genres and countries.
There were hundreds of incredible music videos released last year, but a few really made an impression on us both musically and visually. We’ve rounded up 10 of the best music videos of 2017 available online, so you can make exclusive compilations of the best breakout music of the past year. Remember – you can download from YouTube and create your own playlists of audio or video to enjoy throughout the next year.
1. Kendrick Lamar – HUMBLE
The top of the drawing board, year in year out, is Kendrick Lamar. Together with his previous filmmaker, Dave Meyers, his “HUMBLE” video made the VMA’s Video of the Year awards. The ideology is based on contradiction, which really shines through.
2. Camila Cabello – Havana ft. Young Thug
Including Spanish subtitles, this is a tale from an unknown location in the heart of America where Camila plays two parts. The barbie-esque dream, and the geek at home.
3. Charli XCX – Boys
An pop sensation for anyone who has a few crushes, Charli XCX even co-directed this video all about boys. Including the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Joe Jonas, Mark Ronson and Will.i.am, it will be one remembered as one of the best music videos of 2017.
4. The National – Dark Side of the Gym
The famous doo-wop flavor of a music scene, a classic ballad joined by the favored high-school slow dance. Filmed inside a gymnasium, a short snippet of love being created is captured, but ends drastically.
5. Migos – T-Shirt
Chance the Rapper himself has said that this song from popular artists Migos deserves awards. Collaborating across the pond with British artist DAPs, the film The Revenant provided the main setting inspiration for the frosty video.
6. Dua Lipa – New Rules
A real companionship for ladies of heartbreak, a real commodity that will live for many years which has brought young girls together in a strength binding video.
7. N.E.R.D & Rihanna – Lemon
The talk of the month of November – N.E.R.D is back and they obviously had to take Rihanna with them. A viral sensation struck dancers from all across the globe as Pharrell Williams invited those who dared give the dance a shot. Try this at home?
8. Kamasi Washington – Truth
This goes way beyond the category of the best music videos of 2017, as Kamasi, along with AJ Rojas reach a short documentary in their 14-minute work of art. Concluding walks of life from young people, family ties, and everyday nature form a cosmic conclusion.
9. Jay-Z – The Story of O.J.
Using music as a powerful weapon against racism, Jay-Z cartoons a symbol of himself mocking the parody of racist characters. An illustration on class and colorism in the process of reclaiming portrays, it’s a monumental video directed by Mark Romanek and JAY-Z himself.
10. Björk – The Gate
Another limit breached as we anticipated, the return of Björk. In this one she makes a mockery of herself, as all boundaries are smashed she releases the leash of psychedelia, the rest is in the video.
