Grease Megamix

CarolineandRakAs you know, Rak and I are getting married on Saturday (eeek) and we can’t wait to see you there!!

What you probably don’t know is, we have invited the team from Music Wedding Videos to film everyone enjoying the day, singing, dancing and generally having a great time to the ‘Grease megamix

Here is the song we’ve chosen for you to get familiar with it …

 

How this works is, the guys will be equipped with printed lyrics and speakers on the day; they’ll be looking for volunteers to singalong to a couple of lines from the track on camera. They’ll then turn the footage into a music video of the wedding day. Don’t worry too much about learning all the words as as we mentioned they’ll have some printed on the day and after playing a short section of the song a couple of times you’ll soon pick it up.

You’ll have a few go’s at getting it right, and they’re pretty good at editing to make you look awesome. Your singing voice doesn’t matter either because they’re not going to use the audio – the real song will be played over the video footage of you singing along.

The lyrics are included at the bottom of the page

How up for it are you?

Mad for it!

OK, so you fancy yourself as a bit of a performer or a pop-star in another life?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Watch the video
  • Learn the lyrics
  • Practice in front of the mirror
  • Choreograph a dance routine
  • Get together with some like-minded guests to do something as a group

We are looking for people to (willingly) come forward beforehand to be given specific lines to learn, and we will then forward everyone their own lyrics to perfect 🙂 If any of you do want to perform something special, please let us know or contact the MWV guys at info@musicweddingvideos.com so they can plan it into the shoot.

Happy to get involved on the day

Here’s what we recommend:

  • Watch the video
  • Try to learn at least one or two lines from the song
  • Grab the MWV guys on the day and let them know you want to get involved

A little bit camera-shy

We realise some people either don’t feel super comfortable in front of cameras, especially video cameras. Don’t worry – the MWV guys are very sensitive to this and won’t force you to get involved if you don’t feel comfortable. But if it’s not too painful, we do hope you can at least give us a smile or a wave so that we can remember you on our special video. And remember – if it’s your singing voice you’re worried about, they don’t actually use that in the final video – you’re just miming along to the real song. Here’s what we recommend:

  • Don’t worry too much about learning the lyrics
  • On the day, see if you’re in the right mood. If not, just let the MWV guys know if you’d prefer to just be an ‘extra’ without performing, or if you don’t want to be in the video at all.

We think this is a really fun way to record and re-live our big day for years to come and hope you’ll all get involved in some way.

Still not sure how this works?

Here are a couple of examples of a finished video from previous weddings once they have been edited and effects have been put on…

Alison and James – Dance With Me (Tonight) by Olly Murs

Chelsea and Buzz – On The Floor by J-Lo

 

So……..

  • Glamorous couple – Check
  • Beautiful Location – Check
  • Awesome dancing and singing – that’s where you come in

Let’s make this a wedding video to remember!

 

Love

Caroline and Rakesh

PPS Here are those lyrics…

“Grease Megamix”

B: I got chills.
They’re multiplyin’.
And I’m losin’ control.
‘Cause the power
you’re supplyin’,
it’s electrifyin’!

G: You better shape up,
’cause I need a man
and my heart is set on you.
You better shape up;
you better understand
to my heart I must be true.

B: Nothin’ left, nothin’ left for me to do.

Both: You’re the one that I want.
(you are the one i want), o,o, oo, honey.
The one that I want.
(you are the one i want want), o,o,oo, honey.
The one that I want
(you are the one i want want), o,o, ooooo
The one I need.
Oh, yes indeed.

We’ll get some overhead lifters and four barrel quads, oh yeah
(Keep talking, whoa, keep talking)
Fuel injection cutoffs and chrome plated rods, oh yeah
(I’ll get the money, I’ll kill to get the money)
With a four-speed on the floor, they’ll be waiting at the door
You know that ain’t no shit, we’ll be getting lots of it in Grease Lightning
(Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go)

Go grease lightning, you’re burning up the quarter mile
(Grease lightning, go grease lightning)
Go grease lightning, you’re coasting through the heat lap trial
(Grease lightning, go grease lightning)
You are supreme, the chicks’ll cream for grease lightning
(Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go)

We’ll get some purple French taillights and thirty inch fins, oh yeah
A Palomino dashboard and duel muffler twins, oh yeah
With new pistons, plugs and shocks I can get off my rocks
You know that I ain’t bragging, she’s a real pussy wagon
Grease lightning
(Go, go, go)

Summer lovin’, had me a blast
Summer lovin’, happened so fast
Met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Summer days drifting away
To, uh oh, those summer nights

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car?

She swam by me, she got a cramp
He ran by me, got my suit damp
Saved her life, she nearly drowned
He showed off splashing around
Summer sun, something’s begun
But, uh oh, those summer nights

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?

It turned colder; that’s where it ends
So I told her we’d still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she’s doin’ now
Summer dreams ripped at the seams
But, oh, those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more.
