Uses for a new pro-tools rig # 117

literal reversioning This has been around for a while and spawned various imitations but I think it is absolutely the best. Suggestions for which song might best benefit from a Squid Ink reversioning? I had in mind Richard Marx's Hazard but am not sure we could pull off the FM radio sheen.

I have been listening quite a bit to the Country Music station (91.7 I think) and "I'm a real bad boy but I'm a real good man" would stand up well to some literal representation. There was also a touching Hazard-like balad where, after a fight on prom night, a girl is hit by a car and made paraplegic but doesn't blame the narrator of the song for the fight...which the narrator finds touching and inspiring...all this in the first verse!!! Sadly, I cannot remember the name.

you gotta concentrate on the clip not the lyrics. Ideally you want a song with bland lyrics but a stong narrative line in the music video. Country and Western is more likely ot be the opposite in my (adittedly limited) experience. The more I think about it htis rules out Hazard, also, as the clip follows the song too faithfully from memory.

Of course...I now realise that this is the wrong way need the film clip...

There is no more narrative loaded clip than this one. And it had Felicity in it.

But it's still not exactly right - you need one where there is lots going on but the male lead is mystifyingly both in character AND singing the song. I'll keep thinking.
