Initial Song Ideas For The Video

I looked into 5 different songs that I could potentially use for my music video. They are all around 4 minutes and I think have the same kind of feeling to them in regard to the story they are telling about love and loss. In the end I came to the conclusion that I wanted to use ‘Can I call you tonight’ by Dayglow. The song is about how just a persons voice can change how your day has gone and not feeling confident or sure enough of yourself to tell them how you feel.

My video narrative would mainly feature a male and be more amplification of the song. I would like to go to different phone boxes all over the island and get shots of him picking up the phone for the main chorus section. I would also feature a girl preferably in a relationship with my main character outside of the video already. I feel that they don’t however end up together in this song.

My video would mainly be performance that illustrative and not follow a strict narrative. It would be more of a montage of clips to do with the song whilst also featuring lip syncing.

 

“Can I Call You Tonight?”

I feel close
Well maybe I’m not, heaven knows
It’s a spotlight stuck on the ceiling
Why are these the things that I’m feeling?
There’s so much time
For me to speak up, but I keep quiet
I’ll complicate the most of the mantra
The power’s out and I can’t turn the fan on

So can I call you tonight?
I’m trying to make up my mind
Just how I feel
Could you tell me what’s real?
I hear your voice on the phone
Now I’m no longer alone
Just how I feel
Could you tell me what’s real anymore?
Cause I wouldn’t know

Voice so low
Sneaking around, so it goes
I always try my best to listen
Picking up things that I can fidget
Circle speed
Pacing around, watching my feet
Batteries drain, I get the memo
“I think that I might have to let you go”

So can I call you tonight?
I’m trying to make up my mind
Just how I feel
Could you tell me what’s real?
I hear your voice on the phone
Now I’m no longer alone
Just how I feel
Could you tell me what’s real anymore?
Cause I wouldn’t know

Don’t go, don’t go so easy
Don’t go, don’t go and leave me
Don’t go, don’t go so easy
Don’t go, don’t go and leave me
Don’t go, don’t go so easy
Don’t go, don’t go and leave me
Don’t go, don’t go so easy
Don’t go, don’t go and leave me

So can I call you tonight?
I’m trying to make up my mind
Just how I feel
Could you tell me what’s real?
I hear your voice on the phone
Now I’m no longer alone
Just how I feel
Could you tell me what’s real anymore?
Cause I wouldn’t know

I made a WordArt filled with words and themes I feel fit this song.
