Lyrics analysis

We drew some ideas from the lyrics of our chosen song to help us plan the video:

  • The chorus ("My head is a jungle...") inspired most of our ideas, as the character in the narrative is imagining all the crazy things happening around her.
  • The part of the song where the music suddenly slows down influenced us to film slow motion shots for this bit.
  • We felt that the performance side had to come in at a suitable time and not too far in to the song, so we decided this should happen at the start of the first verse, after the intro.
We have decided to create what Goodwin would describe as an amplified relationship between the lyrics and the visuals, by taking the serious meaning of the lyrics and creating a fun and upbeat interpretation of them. The performance aspect will contrast to this, taking the lyrics much more seriously and illustrating the deeper feelings being sung about. Put together, these will help to create a sense of escapism.
