LIFE: My First Music Video!

If I had one wish (apart from the obvious more monz, good health & bigger house plz) then it would be to be able to sing.  I've always imagined myself in a girl group (don't laugh) and I think I'd be pretty good in a music video, miming and all the rest.

Anyway,  one day last year Andrew and I were trawling through my 'music hard drive' when we stumbled upon a particular song.  I was like 'DO YOU REMEMBER THIS'?  And he was like 'YES' and we both ended singing Har Mar Superstar's song in perfect harmony.  It was then that the Power Lunch Cover idea was born and we have been working on it ever since...





PREMIER:



Andrew is incredible at music; he DJs, makes his own remixes and is the keys/synth player in his band Whisky Jax (they're incredible, check them out here).  I too am creative, love filming videos/taking pictures/editing and so this really was a combination of both our talents combined (we hope you'll agree)!

Andrew made the backing track from scratch and we spent an afternoon in my bedroom with his recording gadgets singing the track, which he then produced into our own song.  We then set on making the video, which we filmed in my local park.  Thankfully we didn't get any odd stares (people must be used to this in Essex) and we had a big giggle lip syncing and trying to act saucy.

To be honest, I didn't really think before hand how it would be perceived on YouTube.  I had some negative comments such as "I'm really embarrassed for you" "Katie I used to love your channel but this is just weird", which did dishearten me (poor Andrew had to spend an evening convincing me that those comments didn't matter).  I think in real life I'm very open, whacky and quirky that my friends and people who knew me found it hilarious whereas viewers just found it a bit odd.  Anyway, what I'm trying to say is it was a lot of fun, I'm glad we did it and there are definitely more covers on their way from us - we've just spent today recording our second!

You can watch bloopers & more outtakes on Andrew's channel here.

Do let me know what you think & what songs you would like to see us do!

  2. Hehe this is fantastic! I can tell you were both struggling not to laugh when you both lick the ice lolly at the same time!

    Screw people who don't like it - Your channel, your life - You're having fun and they're probably just jealous ;)

  10. I think that it was hilarious and a good cover (although I've never heard the song)!
    Some people have no sense of humor.

  11. I think it's fantastic! I really, really love it! I played it on YouTube for days, then I downloaded it so I can listen without clicking on repeat button over and over again. Video is awesome, it goes with a song perfectly, and it sounds even better than the original (in my opinion). I can't even decide which is better - audio or video. Looking forward to more covers like this! :)

  13. Some people love to hate on things and this shouldn't be one of them. YouTube is a creative outlet for people to have fun and showcase their passions. You had fun and it was important to you and that's all that matters. For the record, I thought it was great. Don't let people get you down over something you loved doing. I look forward to watching the next one! Sending love from Perth, Australia xo

  15. love the music, like the whole couple-singing concept. Maybe what the people that wrote the negative comments meant by saying it was embarrasing, was that for some people, licking and snogging is uncomfortable to watch, be it in public or in videos.. I have to agree on that, I'm not saying you shouldn't, by all means :D get down and dirty, just maybe realize that not everyone enjoys watching it ;) Great work! PS. Don't worry about them haters, keep yer chin up matey

  16. Don't listen to those people who clearly have no sense of humour! I loved it (and so did a lot of people apparently), thought it was hilarious, and you and Andrew look like such a fun couple to be around! Keep them coming!

  25. I accept that you want to be yourself and it's hard to be that - when everyone is judging you.

    But my opinion... I kinda don't like the song or video... :/

    But that's just my opinion, do what you love :)

  26. Sounds and look fantastic! Well done!

  27. I loved this! Looks like you had loads of fun! I'm impressed by your ice lolly-biting skills haha. :)

  28. Ignore the haters - its very funny, entertaining and a little bit saucy - the bad comments are obviously from ppl who are jealous (you look completely and utterly stunningly gorgeous in it after all, as well as both obviously being very talented peeps to be able to do it), who spend their time spreading hate online rather than getting out and actually doing it themselves.

    Good on you - life is for living, and this definitely looks like living to me :D

  30. This video actually made me bookmark your blog. LOVE a goofy lipsync and loved seeing your personality shine through!

    You will look back on this video in 50 years and be so glad you lived your life with love and laughter and fun. That's more important than those nasty, unnecessary opinions x
