PLEASE MAKE A VIDEO FOR "A LOT LIKE ME"!!!!!!!







I don't know if this warranted a thread of its own, but I just felt this needed certain emphasis. I am literally getting goosebumps from listening to this song. This is the next Gone Away, except it might actually be better (I can't believe I just said that).


This song gets more amazing every time I listen to it. Then I finally read the lyrics and I basically had a heart attack.

If this isn't turned into a video, I'm going to be very disappointed.

An interesting fact.
I was thinkin' of an A lot like me videoclip the moment I saw your thread's title.
And I thought of Gone Away's video too.

Picture them standing in an open field, and during the chorus it just starts pouring rain, that would be very powerful :)

I really hope they won't do it for someones love for any god or gods. I hope they do it for themselves, and because they want to.

Agreed. A Lot Like Me should be a single with a video that the band is in. And not animated.


And without pigs.

They can certainly redeem themselves with this one.

I think Half-Truism would be the most popular with the general public though.

Not to mention, who knows that Hammerhead video is out, besides us?

And you guys are making me feel like a trendy asshole for loving this song.:(:mad:

I absolutely agree with you Thomas. <3

It's an epic song. The new Gone Away. It needs an epic video!

i think they do a video involving them and mirrors and actors and making people blend into one another...sort of in a TKAA way, but so that it gives a greater meaning to the song:D...that wud be awesome

They should have a poll on here to pick the next single after YGGF,K.


just a thought....

I think they already determined Kristy is going to be the next single.

Thomas
06-19-2008, 12:46 PM
Oh. I thought Kristy was just a rumor that got proved wrong by the release of YGGF,K...

I think it was rumored to be the second single initially, but seems like it's a likely choice for the third seeing as how it's a sappy, generic (though not BAD), radio-ready ballad. I hope I'm wrong and they release something else. A Lot Like Me would be an awesome choice, it's one of my favorites on the album.

Thomas
06-19-2008, 01:09 PM
Really, i don't care if it's a huge radio hit at all, I just want to see a freaking video for this song. Even if it's along the lines of Da Hui or Mota where no one outside of this message board knows it exists. =P

They seriously have to release 6 or 7 singles, one way or another.

HH
Kid
A Lot Like Me
Kristy
Stuff Is Messed Up
Fix You
and maybe Half-Truism (I'm not sure yet, lol)

Kristy and Fix You could make it X times platinum. They have to be on the radio.

They should make 5 videos.

Thomas
06-19-2008, 01:25 PM
Screw it! They have to make 12 videos!

Now I know that kristy, Are You Doing Ok? seems to most of us as the next single. But when i bought my Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace album it had one of those stickers on it saying "Featuring: Hammerhead & You're Gonna Go Far, Kid". That in its self makes me think You're Gonna Go Far, Kid will be their next single because those stickers always have the titles of the singles. Just a though.

I didn't know if my though was worth a new thread or not.

KROQ was playing it as far as I know, and I know that people have been requesting it in Tucson because it was the #5 top requested song the other day.


EDIT: I'm referring to YGGF,K

HeadAroundU
06-19-2008, 02:27 PM
Kid will a single for sure. I immediatelly noticed an outstanding production.

Thomas
06-19-2008, 02:29 PM
Can we send like a huge petition to Dexter to make A Lot Like Me the next single after YGGF,K? Like, get a bunch of people here to "sign" it and then send it to him or something?

Or maybe a poll, perhaps?

I agree, start a poll and then send the link to them some how.

Would be good to see a video for YGGF,K.
I also reckon they should spit out a video for trust in you, similar to that of all i want!!

06-19-2008, 06:13 PM
YGGFK would be good as a single, along with A Lot Like Me.
But I really want a video for Fix You. I have no clue how it would work, but they could figure something out.
