Deciding On Which Track

It took a great deal of thinking in which song to finally pick. The song had to match the criteria of either being over 10 years old or it not having a video.

I was torn between 3 song's, all very different this is why it was tough to decide on which one to finally go for.

Westlife: Looking Like That
Hall and Oates: You Make My Dreams
The Goo Goo Doll's: Iris

Firstly Westlife
Track: Looking Like That
Length: 3:26
Year: 2001

I took great inspiration from last years work by Emmie Bryett and Megan Claydon on The Backstreet boys song I Want It That Way.
A few of my friends were involved in the filming as part of the boy band, and it looked like a really fun thing to be a part of for both production crew and the actors.
Using full advantage of the local iconic scenery like the cow and calf rocks on Ilkley Moor.

The idea I wouldve gone with for Westlife would of been a mixture of narrative and concept, featuring lots of the boy band lip syncing to the music and also the narrative part of the relationship between a member of the band and the girl which the song is about.

The Goo Goo Dolls:

Track: Iris
Length: 3:36
Year of Release: 1999

My idea for this would be a hybrid between concept and performance, it would feature shots of a band playing and also the relationship between a boy and a girl.
The boy fighting for the girl and wanting to be with her, but she ignores him however hard he tries.

An inspiration for this idea which is similar is the video for We Are The Ocean: Confessions
