Chocolate- The 1975

The video below is a song I consider a possible choice for my music video.


The song is about being under the influence of cannabis. Chocolate is a reference for drugs. The video shows how the youth of our day are bored so they turn to drugs, smoking anywhere they can. The song also goes on to explain how the police don't have "any criminals to chase so they chase after us; kids smoking weed."

The video shows two boys escape from a childhood of drugs alcohol and crime. The two boys are younger versions of the main singer and his childhood friends, they experience the rush and thrill of committing illegal acts, but unfortunately comes to an end of betrayal.

Shine- Years & Years

The video below is a song I consider a possible choice for my music video.

The video depicts a young boy in a house, which appears to be burning. The lyrics explain his experience of falling in love, “it’s you that I’ve been waiting to find”. The house is a metaphor for the feelings he feels.
