From all of us in HICKTOWN BREAKOUT, we want to thank you for your interest in being in our music video for our song 'Roses'. 

#rosesforourheros

Why we're doing this

To show our support and admiration for key workers, frontline staff and the general public who are living through these challenging times and doing their bit to help combat COVID-19, Hicktown Breakout will be doing a Music Video for our song ‘Roses’, which features on our current EP.

We'd love you to be in our video - show the world how you're getting through this and help raise awareness for this very worthy charity

WHAT WE're looking for

Like the song, this video will be upbeat and uplifting showing the world how we’re all beating this and getting on with life. 

We want to cram in as many video clips and pics over the sound track which is where we need your help!

Be creative, expressive and  positive and let's make this a fun thing to do at a time when lots of people are facing depression, poverty and enduring hard times. 

Here's some ideas for your videos or pictures..

  • Why not dance around and mime along to our song (see link below to the song)
  • If you’re a musician you could play along, or if you’re not, perhaps rocking a bit of air guitar! 
  • Use props such as signs. I.e showing the #rosesforourheros or maybe quote some lyrics (see below)
  • Do this on your own, with your family or co-workers! It’s totally up to you. 
  • Make it fun, smile and show the world that you’re beating this! 

Please adhere to social distancing guidelines where applicable  

 

Let's all collaborate and show the world how strong we all are in these extremely challenging times.

    Song Lyrics

    Verse 1

    Sitting here watching the moon from the bed of my old ford pickup truck

    It’s hot as hell at half past 12 and I can’t believe my luck

    Thinking of how you looked at me with those big old hazel eyes

    Loving the way your smile can make me fly

    Chorus

    Why don’t you, kiss me before the roses die

    Just wanna hold you in my arms tonight

    I know this might be crazy but if you just give me a try

    Why don’t you, kiss me before the roses die, before the roses die

    Verse 2

    Trying to keep these thoughts out of my head

    I don’t drink holy water so I gotta find something else instead

    The open road, let the world I know just drift away

    Wait for you to be in my arms till my dying day

    Chorus

    Why don’t you, kiss me before the roses die

    Just wanna, hold you in my arms tonight

    I know this might be crazy, but if you just give me a try

    Why don’t you, kiss me before the roses die, before the roses die

    What next?

    After you’ve recorded your video or taken your pics please send them to hicktownbreakout@gmail.com 

    The closing date for submissions is Sunday 14th June! We will endeavour to cram in as many of your videos and pics into the music video as we possibly can!

     

     We can't wait to see you in our video! Thank you.
