  • 1. Narrative Analysis – Pond – You Broke My Cool Lyrics Hey Come look out in the hall, man There's a bat hanging off the wall, man Wanna help it out I wanna help it out You Don't wanna be stupid, ugly, dumb Wanna be a little more likely, son Spend my golden (?) You were gone today, must've dropped my heart All my hair was falling out I never thought I was through Now I live with a yeti and a caterpillar king I wanna make love on everything Make love on you You, you broke my cool Yeah, yeah, yeah You broke it right in two All I can do is stand the pressure Now I can't talk, though I'd write you a letter Maybe a song Maybe that will be better Now I'm a mess in a sequin dress No, I don't care, don't wanna obsess I'm a mess Or maybe you just broke my cool You, you broke my cool Yeah, yeah, yeah you broke it right in two Analysis Camera In this music video, the lyrics do not have much relevance to the video. The music video looks to be the bands footage. This would be relevant to the fans of the band as people who follow the band would know that whilst making this album the band spent two weeks on Zampatti Farm, Eagle Bay, Western Australia. The thing that stands out most about the video is that the picture looks rather old which suggests it has been took on an old camera, since this is quite a modern band. Despite this the song is quite slow and the use of the old camera adds to the tone of the song. The videos are all different size pictures and all fit onto the screen at once and have different effects on, because of the genre of the band, which is psychedelic rock. The band also does some self-advertising, as half way through the video a title appears, which says, ‘This is a Beard, Wives, Denim Intermission’. This is the name of the album and the style of the title has been used to compliment the style of the old looking video clips. Even though we see the band outdoors playing with a Frisbee and relaxing in the location, we also keep on seeing clips of the band playing their instruments, which reinforces the fact that this is a music video. Sound The lyrics of this song are totally irrelevant to the music video. However this is a common trait of the band and their music videos. The lyrics give the impression that someone has done something to him, which has changed his personality and views on things. However most of the bands other lyrics do not match the videos. Editing The speed of the video is determined by the tempo of the song. When the song is rather slow, the shots are in normal speed. Although when the song speeds up, the clips have been
