What style is it?
This music video is a Narrative music video, as
it follows guitarist and singer Simon Neil, play
out a story that is related to the Lyrics. It
shows him repeatedly going through the same
situation, doing different thing, relating the to
lyrics “Baby if you could would you go back to
the start?Take any fresh steps or watch it all fall
apart again?”As he try's to change the end
outcome of the situation, him getting beaten
up.This is a very effective plot as it relates
directly to the lyrics to make a good story.
What’s the plot?
The video shows Simon wake up, and walk out of his room, he is lip syncing
the words throughout the music video. He then walks out of the hotel and
ends up getting beaten up.The situation then repeats but he does stuff
differently, the first time, he pushes a man in a pool, and then kicks over a
water butt and smashes the window of the guys that will then beat him up.
The situation then repeats with him trying not to get beaten up by, helping
someone out of the pool, and giving the hotel owner money, to try and be a
better person, but the outcome never changes.
Does the music video relate to the music?
The music video relates very closely to the music as we can see the lyrics come
to life, and show how the band meant for the song to be listen to / interpreted.
So the music video links very closely to the lyrics and music.
This makes the music video very good, and works very well to make an
effective music video, by sticking to the narrative genre and so closely to the
lyrics it makes the music video very good.
