Metal Man Video Shoot info – Sunday 27 November 2016
DATE: Sunday 27 November 2016
LOCATION: ROSSES POINT RNLI CAR PARK, SLIGO
TIME 12 NOON to 3PM approx ( You can arrive at different times within this period to suit, but let us know, please)
Hi all, and thanks for checking out this post. The plan for our “Metal Man” video shoot is as follows:
We meet at 12 noon Sunday 27 Nov at the “Waiting on the Shore” statue in Rosses Point. You can park in the RNLI car park there.
PLEASE EMAIL email@example.com, TEXT 087 9249282 OR MESSAGE EDDIE ON FACEBOOK to confirm you will be there as it will be very useful for us to have numbers and a schedule for shooting everyone’s part!
We plan to shoot close up videos of volunteers of all ages, lip-syncing to the song Metal Man, from our new CD “Why Us?” – soundcloud secret streaming link here
Here are the lyrics below, as it might be useful to familiarise yourself with the song – pick a verse and get familiar with it. We will film people lip-syncing a verse of your choice, and then pick people’s best lines in the final edit. With your help, we hope to make this a Sligo classic!
DRESS CODE- whatever you like, but a nautical theme (even a sailors cap) would work well. Feel free to dress up as much or as crazy as you like!
Any questions, email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call Eddie 087 9249282
words and music by Eddie Lee and David Lyttle
Born in eighteen twenty-one
One of four strong metal sons
Standing twenty five feet high
Watch the Sligo tides go by
Metal Man, Metal Man
Two young brothers lost somehow
To this day the’ve not been found
Some say one’s in Sydney Bay
Lizard Island, Mandalay
(Well) either way his life is done
Metal life, lost so young
Ronnie Drew stole the other one
If only you could sail away
Around the isle to Tramore Bay,
You would see your brother guide
Ships that visit with the tide
Metal men, brothers, friends
A lantern blinks to light the way
With your back to Knocknarea
From Coney Island we watched you
From Memory Harbour they did too
Metal Man, Metal Man,
Looking for your guiding hand
Looking east to Rosses Point,
Where John Black built Elsinore,
Is it true they haunt the place,
Those smugglers who fell from grace?
Do metal men have metal ghosts?
I’ve been told there’s metal souls.
Metal Man, Metal Man, Metal Man etc etc
