Lyrics Breakdown ‘Royals’ Lorde (0.10) I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies The artist Lorde goes by a very ‘basic’ lifestyle. She has never seen luxurious items such as diamonds in real life. The only reason she knows of these is because of pop culture meaning she has only seen them through the silver screen. Lorde is cutting her teeth referencing that she is just getting to grips with this new idea. The movies have introduced her to this new materialism-without these movies she would never have known about diamonds and the greed they symbolise. At this part I will introduce the feature of my music video with a location of the ‘basic’ lifestyle Seaton Beach. (0.22) And I’m not proud of my address In the town up town, no postcode envy Lorde calls her home town in New Zealand a torn up town which is somewhat of a stretch. She went to one of the richest school in New Zealand and lives in one of the wealthiest suburbs in Auckland. However Lorde’s belief is that New Zealand is pretty much irrelevant in modern society, because of this no one envies her postcode. My idea here is to use a lower classed postcode area in the town to establish the quote ‘no post code envy’. (0.33) [Pre-chorus] But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, Tripping in the bathroom Here Lorde is subtly criticizing mainstream music of today. Feeling tired of the same discussions in songs by mainstream artists such as alcohol, drugs, fashion and expensive cars. The song portrays the unreal expectations of teenagers today influenced by media. At this point I will be using the features to lip sync the lyrics, possibly in a studio location. (0.37) Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room We don’t care we’re driving Cadillac’s in our dreams This part is the tagline of Lorde’s social networking blog, Tumblr. These outlines Lorde’s whole philosophy of life. Here will again be lip sync of the features in a studio.

(0.44) But everybody’s like crystal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash We don’t care we aren’t caught up in your love affair Again Lorde is mocking pop culture and is basically saying she doesn’t care for that genre. At this point I want to juxtapose the whole typical pop video and have a not so glamorous view. This could be interpreted by location or what the features are going to be wearing. (0.55) [Chorus] And we’ll never be royals (royals) It don’t run in our blood That kind of lux just ain’t for us We crave a different king of buzz Let me be your ruler (ruler) You can call me Queen Bee Cos baby I’ll rule, let me live that fantasy Here Lorde is basically portraying how she doesn’t want to be part of that luxury which is why she craves ‘a different kind of buzz’. She wants to lead a group of people like herself, which is why she references to herself as a queen. Here I could juxtapose what Lorde is portraying and have fancy mise en scene mocking royalty or luxury. (1.24) My friends and I we’ve cracked the code We count our dollars on the train to the party And everyone who knows us knows That we’re fine with this, we didn’t come for money Although Lorde doesn’t like the typical mainstream ways doesn’t mean that her and her friends don’t socialise and have a good time. This part basically explains that she goes out with a normal amount of money to spend when going out unlike mainstream artists blowing their money on a night out. At this part I want introduce a partying scene but a scene, which is different to mainstream nights out. This part will include the features dressed up but in a quieter place having a drink with a lot of shots filled with laughter.

(1.46+) After this verse the pre-chorus and chorus are just repeated until the end. For the rest of this I will not be using any new locations I will be switching through all different scenes of the features in the introduce locations. Such as the beach, lower class area, the studio, the mocking of luxury and the party. I will be using as many different shots that are possible with the equipment I can use and will create the whole contrast of mainstream artists and portray what this track it about.
