You get it right next time I'm going to create a music video for the song "You get it right next time” by Gerry Rafferty. The reason I chose the song is because it doesn't already have a music video and it is catchy to listen to.
Get It Right Next Time lyricsOut on the street I was talkin' to a manHe said "there's so much of this life of mine that I don't understand"You shouldn't worry yes that ain't no crimeCause if you get it wrong you'll get it right next time next time You need direction yeah you need a nameWhen you're standing in the crossroads every highway looks the sameAfter a while you can recognize the signsSo if you get it wrong you'll get it right next time next timeLife is a liar yeah life is a cheatIt'll lead you on and pull the ground from underneath your feetNo use complainin', don't you worry don't you whineCause if you get it wrong you'll get it right next time next timeYou gotta grow you gotta learn by your mistakesYou gotta die a little everyday just to try to stay awakeWhen you believe there's no mountain you can climbAnd if you get it wrong you'll get it right next time next time, Next time, hmmmmm Mp3 and lyrics
Ideas for music video I would like to use stickmen in the music video and focus the most on them. I would have them doing the actions explained in the lyrics and then do crazy special effects with them like having some stickmen in a spinning portal and being sucked down a bathroom sink. I would use quite a lot of advanced computer animation programs to tell the lyrics story, A storyboard to plan the story and possibly voice over equipment give the stickmen personalities.
