Lyrical Livelihood

The end of the school year is upon us and that means the music video project is underway. The music video project is one of the things us G.T. kids look forward to all year. For this project we get to choose our groups and the song that we want to do a music video on. My team consists of just my friend Mikela and I because the rest of my friends in my class teamed up together without us.

I have multiple favorite songs and they all differ depending on my mood. So some of the songs I like are This is Gospel, Northern Downpour, and Let's Kill Tonight, all by Panic! at the Disco. When I listen to songs like this I want to shout the songs even if they are slow, but instead it ends up with me furiously lip syncing. When I start to like a song, I look up the lyrics and figure out what the song means.

For my music video we chose the song Fourth of July by Fall Out Boy. Our first choice would have been Uma Thurman by Fall Out Boy, but there is one line that isn't appropriate for school. Mikela and I both love Fall Out Boy, so we decided that we would want to do a song from their newest album, American Beauty/American Psycho. We chose this song because it has a really cool beat and we wanted to make a music video of us having fun and Fourth of July sort of fits this theme.

Since we wanted our music video to show having fun, we thought that our story could be about our idea of a good summer. So we are planning to go to the beach and other places to film. We thought that our music video could tell a story of friends who have a great summer and then have to go to different schools when school starts.
