Lyric Videos versus Music Videos Songs

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like music and doesn’t sing along to their favorite songs. The Internet is an excellent source of endless and most times free music. If you love singing along to songs, there are apps with lyrics that you can sing along to, or you can go to YouTube and watch lyric videos. Besides artists’ official music videos, they also create lyric videos so everyone can sing along to the correct lyrics.

A lot of times we mishear song lyrics, and only years later realize that we sang our favorite songs incorrectly. Anyone can create a lyric video, and often fans of artists create them for their enjoyment and for everyone else to watch. With the emergence of lyric videos, are music videos still as relevant?

Lyric videos became popular in the early days of YouTube. The trailblazers for lyric videos felt a need for them, and thus they made the first ones, which you can still watch to this day. Lyric videos differ from music videos such that they only show the lyrics to the song and not much else. They focus on letting the viewers learn the correct words to a song. Music videos, on the other hand, are more creative works by animators, videographers, directors, and artists. They tell stories that relate to the song, or sometimes not at all.

Music videos are aesthetic ones that are entertaining to watch. If you fancy making your own lyric video but do not want to spend on software or pay a professional, you can start with free apps on the Internet or software from your computer, such as Movie Maker. Make sure though that you type the correct lyrics, and the transition does not delay the words from the music.

We grew up watching music videos of songs on MTV. But with the popularity of the Internet in the last few decades and the emergence of YouTube, we have more videos to watch whenever we fancy watching them. We have control over what to watch and when. With MTV, we were at their mercy as to what videos would play next. Artists and music labels shell out money to produce music videos that will have a recall with the audience. They make music videos with a lot of colors, a lot of dancing and a lot of graphics. The most watched videos on YouTube are lyric and music videos. They range in the millions, even billions, of views. The only downside to music videos is that you may mishear the lyrics and sing the wrong ones until you watch the lyric videos.

You can see different lyric videos for one particular song, and each of them exhibits the creativity of the maker. It can be straightforward or creatively done; it depends on what the maker thinks the viewers will like. You too can make your own lyric video of your favorite. You can either make it by using free apps or hire a professional to do it for you.
