Fandom Music-Vid Ideas

I'm not musical, visual, or technologically savvy enough to make fannish vids myself. But every now and then I hear a song that would be perfect, and wish that I had those talents. I'm going to get a few of those out of my system right now, by posting them here.

Maybe I'll get lucky and someone who likes to vid in my fandoms will see this post! :-)



SONG/ARTIST: "Pressing On," Reliant K
FANDOM: The Sentinel
CHARACTER: Jim & Blair
TYPE OF VID: Friendship; Blair's POV; a series overview, from pilot to TSbyBS, celebration and rememberance, looking forward.
DETAILS/INCLUDE: The song has a strong beat, so action scenes will fit in well with the more serious ones. Some obvious correspondences: "drop all I have and go with you" could be the garbage truck scene, for example. And the last line, "We're gonna make it after all," has to be from the very end of TSbyBS.

LYRICS:

I think we're going somewhere
we're onto something good here
out of mind, out of state
trying to keep my head on straight
i think we're going somewhere
we're onto something good here
there is only one thing left to do
drop all i have and go with you
somewhere back there i left my worries all behind
my problems fell out of the back of my mind
we're going and i'm never knowing (never knowing) where we're going
to go back where i was will just be wrong
i'm pressing on
pressing on, all my distress is going going gone (pressing on, pressing on)
and i won't sit back and take this anymore
cause i'm done with that
i've got one foot out the door
and to go back would just be wrong
i'm pressing on
i think we're going somewhere
we're on to something good here
out of mind out of state
trying to keep my head on straight
i think we're going somewhere
we're on to something good here
adversity, we get around it
searched for joy, in you i found it
you look down on me, but you don't look down on me at all
you smile and laugh, and i feel the love you have for me
i think we're going somewhere
we're on to something good here
and we're gonna make it after all.




SONG/ARTIST: "One Girl Revolution," by Superchic(k)
FANDOM: Alias
CHARACTER: Syndey Bristow
TYPE OF VID: Ironic. The song is a girl-power song, and fits Sydney's lifestyle as a superspy well enough, but what I love about Sydney is the fact that she "can be anyone she wants to be," but what she'd really love is a normal life. If this vid, so focused on upsetting expectations, could show that, that's what I would be going for.
DETAILS/INCLUDE: Probably a lot of stuff from the first 2 seasons, when Syd was still balancing her "bank" cover story with her spy work, still going to school, etc.

LYRICS:

I wear a disguise
I'm not just your average jane
The super doesn't stand for model
But that doesn't mean I'm plain
If all you see is how I look
You miss the superchick within
And I christen you titanic, underestimate and swim
I've got the rifle gonna be myself

(CHORUS)
I'll be everything that I want to be
I am confidence in insecurity
I am a voice yet waiting to be heard
I'll shoot the shot (bang) that you hear round the world
I'm a one girl revolution

Some people see the revolution but most only see the girl
I can lose my hard earned freedom if my fear defines my world
I declare my independence from the critics and their stones
I can find my revolution I can learn to stand alone...




SONG/ARTIST: "Can't Get Past the Evidence of You," by 4Him
FANDOM: CSI
CHARACTER: Grissom/Sara 'ship
TYPE OF VID: Well, a 'shippy vid.
DETAILS/INCLUDE: Given that the entire song uses the language of evidence and law enforcement, there's no reason to limit clips to 'shippy moments. Any time G and S work together on a case is fair game, matching actions to mentions of "trace," "clues," and "pieces". :-) And I would save that nice pullout shot from the end of "Butterflied" for the end of the vid.

LYRICS:

You broke into this world of mine,
You stole my heart, you robbed me blind,
While I wasn't looking at all.
Without a warning or a sign,
It seems you caught me by surprise.
Now I know the reason why,
Love is the alibi...hey, hey, yeah

Chorus
'Cause I can't get past the evidence,
I can't get past the proof.
I can't get past the evidence,
It's impossible to do.
I can't get past the evidence, and I can't deny the truth,
I can't get past the evidence of you, yeah.

Look for pieces on the way,
To fix the puzzle of this place
Is there an equation to life?
But in the midst of every day,
There's a clue, there is a trace.
A remnant of love remains,
I'm ready to rest my case...hey, hey, yeah.

Chorus

Beyond the shadow of a doubt, I see the new life.
I'm a victim of a love I can't deny,
I'll be the first to testify, yeah
That I can't get past the evidence of you, yeah.

Chorus 2x

I can't get past the evidence,
I can't get past the proof.
I can't get past the evidence,
It's impossible to do.
You are the reason that I can't deny the truth.
I can't get past the evidence...



I've been meaning to post that forever. Finally!
