We're going to have the 'Time of Our Lives'

image(1)

As you know, Steve 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 ‘Time of My Life (Dirty Bit)’ by Black Eyed Peas

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

Sarah and Steve

“Time of My Life (Dirty Bit)”

(This is international)
(Big mega radio smasher)

[Will.I.am:]
I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you

[Fergie:]
Oh I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you-y-y-y-y-yy-y-y-y

… dirty bit
… dirty bit

[Will.I.am:]
I-I came up in here to rock
Light a fire make it hot
I don’t wanna take no pictures
I just wanna take some shots so
Come on let’s go
Let’s lose control
Let’s do it all night
‘Till we can do it no more
People rock it to the sound
Turn it up and watch it pound
We gon’ rock it to the top
‘Till the roof come burning down
Yea it’s hot in here
The temperature
Has got these ladies gettin’ freakier

[Fergie:]
I got freaky, freaky, baby
I was chillin with my ladies
I didn’t come to get boji
I come here to get crazy
I was born to get wild
That’s my style
If you didn’t know that,
Well baby now you know now,

[Chorus:]
‘Cause I’m
Havin’
A good time with you
I’m tellin’ you

[Will.I.am:]
I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you

[Fergie:]
Oh I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-y

… dirty bit
… dirty bit

[Apl.de.ap:]
A-All these girls they like my swagger
They callin me Mick Jagger
I be rollin like a stone
Jet setter, Jet lagger
We ain’t messin’ with no maggots
Messin’ with the baddest
Chicks in the club
Honey what’s up
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who’s the baddest of them all
It’s gotta be the apl
I’m the mac daddy, ya’ll
Haters better step back
Ladies don’t load you’re act
I’m the party application rock it just like that

(This is international)

[Chorus:]
‘Cause I’m
Havin’
A good time with you

And I swear-wear this is true ue-ue-ue
And I owe it all to you
