  • 1. Starlight – Wonderland Music Video Analysis: Goodwin’s Theory Josie Fernandes
  • 2. ‘ Starlight’
    • The genre of this song: pop/acoustic with a slight country feel to the song.
    • The video typically includes various band members singing into the camera:
    What genre is the music and how is this reflected in the video?
    • It includes the members generally dancing, but there is no set routine.
    - The video includes the stereotypical band scenes where they are all in one shot standing in different positions.
  • 3. ‘ Starlight’ What genre is the music and how is this reflected in the video?
    • It includes the members generally dancing, but there is no set routine.
    • The video includes the stereotypical band scenes where they are all in one shot standing in different positions.
  • 4. ‘ Starlight’
    • ‘ Starlight you are bright’ – The shot details the sun reflecting off the metallic RV as it drives past:
    • :‘And you’re shining down upon me’ – As the band member sings the line she is filmed slightly looking up into the sky.
    • ‘ Do you see me standing here’ – Is sung over the shot of all 5 of the members trying to get the attention of a train rushing past them:
    How do the images relate to the lyrics?
  • 5. ‘ Starlight’
    • ‘ I wanna dance underneath your light’ – The shot shows the band dancing and singing under the light of the sun:
    • :‘When I die in the day’ – There is a shot of one of the girls looking down to the ground – evokes the unhappy emotion.
    • ‘ There’s a friend to be found’ – The line is sung over the shot of two girls hugging each other:
    How do the images relate to the lyrics?
  • 6. ‘ Starlight’
    • ‘ Tumbling out’ – the shot shows one band member rolling down a desert hill.
    • :‘Underneath your light’ – The low trees symbolise the person they’re singing about. They act as the protective subject the singers are dancing under.
    • The use of the sparklers relate generally to the songs name ‘Starlight’:
    • :‘You pull me in’ – Follows by the image of one person pulling another in for a hug.
    How do the images relate to the lyrics?
  • 7. ‘ Starlight’
    • The movement of the road (speed of the RV moving) follows the increasing tempo of the music and beat:
    • The shots move in time to the beat: singer  road  landscape:
    How do the images relate to the music?
  • 8. ‘ Starlight’
    • Frequent use of close-ups of the band members as they sing:
    • The long shots of the band are used to establish their ‘look’ as a new girl band.
    How is the artist presented to ‘sell’ them?
  • 9. ‘ Starlight’
    • There is no obvious use of females being presented voyeuristically, however the shirt of one of the band members is tied up revealing her stomach:
    • In my opinion, I don’t view this as provocative.
    Is there any reference to ‘looking’? Are females presented voyeuristically?
  • 10. ‘ Starlight’
    • The hula girl doll on the dashboard of the car – refers to the idea of a holiday ‘road trip’:
    • One of the band members quickly performs the stereotypical sign for ‘rock’:
    Can you spot any intertextual references? What are they?
  • 11. ‘ Starlight’
    • The music video generally has a road trip narrative but focuses a lot on the band members.
    • This could be because this is their 2 nd single however, they may still be trying to get familiar with their audience.
    Any further comments?
