Sum 41 - In Too Deep (Rock)
When creating the timeline for the video of Sum 41 - In Too Deep, I made some observations regarding relationships between sound, camera shots, edits, lyrics and image. The most obvious observation made from this music video was the different meanings between the phrase 'In Too Deep'. Sum 41 had created their music video for this song to be a diving competition where the band were 'in too deep' in terms of diving in to water. However, the actual meaning behind this song is to do with a relationship with a girl describing that they are 'in too deep' in terms of the relationship that he's in - deeper than wanted hence the lyrics:
'Cause I'm in too deep, and I'm trying to keep,
Up above in my head, instead of going under.'
Another observation I had made was that of a relationship with lyrics and image when the lead singer was taking his turn diving. The lyrics sung at the time were;
'Because I'm bending over backwards to relate'
At the same time, the lead singer was doing back flips on the diving board, creating a relationship between the lyrics being sung and the image being shown.
Snoop Dogg ft. Wiz Khalifa - Young, Wild & Free (Hip - Hop / Rap )
The first relationship in the music video I found was between the lyrics of the song and image displayed. The lyric being sung was;
'Give me some 501′s jeans on and roll joints bigger than King Kong's fingers'
This lyric was sung while simultaneously the image in the video being displayed was Snoop Dogg with a teacher from the school smoking a 'joint bigger than King Kong's fingers'.
From my research and creating the timelines for 'In Too Deep' and 'Young, Wild & Free', I realised that most music videos are split in to two parts - one being the artist performing and the other being a dramatisation of the story line behind the lyrics of the music video.
