Hi! Hello! Yes!  
You are great.  People who make vids for other people are great.  As a reward I am going to try this strange new thing called "brevity", for your sake.  I'm prone to auto-RPF bloviating so let's consider this a character building exercise.  
General things about vids (mostly re-pasted from last year):
General Likes in Vids
I am inclined to like vids. I like playing with lyrics and the theme of the song. I LOVE LOVE LOVE internal motion and choreography. I like it when I can see something new every time I see a vid. I love when vidders get interpretive with lyrics. I like to be moved emotionally, in any direction.  I like critique.  Uh I guess what I am saying is that I like vids?
General Dislikes in Vids
Overuse of literalism. Overuse of filters/effects for the sake of using filters and effects. Microcutting for the sake of micro-cutting. 
...actually that sounds like different parts of the same issue: it's just about making mindful desicions about the hows and whys of a vid. (I'm one of those people, sorry). I think the idea should carry the vid, and the cutting and effects should serve the idea. There's a really wide variety of styles that I like, including effects heavy vids, but they all have *intent*, if that makes sense.  
I'm pretty easy with music, as I genuinely enjoy a wide range of stuff. All time favorites include David Bowie, pre-Good News Modest Mouse, Velvet Underground, MGMT, Tori Amos, Andrew Bird, Joanna Newsom, the Pixies, and classic Elton John. Currently I can't stop listening to alt-J. But I like rock, most pop (esp upbeat), folk, soul, funk, psychadelic stuff, intrumental, metal, hip hop and I can be convinced about country western. I like finding new music through vids. 
I don't have a lot of no-go areas, but "Things that sound like Nickleback or Evanescence" are gonna be a hard sell  (Again, sorry, I am one of *those* people).
Okay!  On to the specifics:
