A reader pivots off our year-end list:

Instead of listing my favorite song/album of the year, I thought I’d mention my favorite music video. Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment’s "Sunday Candy" is a joyous mini-musical with scene and costume changes, wonderful dancing and a “let’s put on a show” energy. Filmed in one continuous take, the rapping is by Chance the Rapper and the gospel inflected chorus is sung by Jamila Woods. It makes me smile every time I watch it and, really, what else do you need?
