Notes: Much thanks to [personal profile] astolat for buying me in the VividCon auction and giving me such a fun subject to work with. (And rereading all your Adam fic was VID RESEARCH. Yes, research.) Also thank you to [personal profile] greensilver for betaing, and to Adam Lambert fans for making it easy to find the source I needed. Y'all are awesome and I hope you like this vid.

Monae and Leftfoot
Another day
I take your pain away

Some people talk about ya
Like they know all about ya
When you get down they doubt ya
And when you dip it on the scene
Yeah they talkin' bout it
Cause they can't dip on the scene
Whatcha talk about it
T-t-t-talkin' bout it
When you get elevated,
They love it or they hate it
You dance up on them haters
Keep getting funky on the scene
While they jumpin' round ya
They trying to take all of your dreams
But you can't allow it

Cause baby whether you're high or low
Whether you're high or low
You gotta tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
T-t-t-tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)

Baby, baby, baby

Whether you're high or low
(High or low)
Baby whether you're high or low
(High or low)
You got to tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
Now let me see you do the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
And I'm still tippin' on it

See I'm not walkin' on it
Or tryin' to run around it
This ain't no acrobatics
You either follow or you lead, yeah
I'm talkin' bout you,
I'll keep on blaming the machine, yeah
I'm talkin' bout it,
T-t-t-talkin' bout it
I can't complain about it
I gotta keep my balance
And just keep dancin on it
We gettin funky on the scene
And you know about it,
Like a star on the screen
Watch me tip all on it

Then baby whether I'm high or low
(High or low)
Baby whether you're high or low
(High or low)
Ooh, you gotta tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
Yeah, tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)

Baby, baby, baby

Whether you're high or low
(High or low)
Baby whether you're high or low
(High or low)
Tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
Baby let me see you tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
And I'm still tippin' on it

I tip on alligators and little rattle snakers
But I'm another flavor
Something like a terminator
Ain't no equivocating
I fight for what I believe
Why you talkin' bout it
S-s-she's talkin' bout it
Some callin' me a sinner
Some callin' me a winner
I'm callin' you to dinner
And you know exactly what I mean,
Yeah I'm talkin' bout you
You can rock or you can leave
Watch me tip without you

N-N-Now whether I'm high or low
(High or low)
Whether I'm high or low
(High or low)
I'm gonna tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
(Tip, tip on it)

Baby, baby
Whether I'm high or low
(High or low)
High or low
(High or low)
I got to tip on the tightrope
(Tip, tip on it)
Now baby tip on the tightrope

You can't get too high
(You can't get too high)
I said you can't get too low
(We can't get too low)
Cause you get too high
(You can't get too high)
No you'll surely be low
(No, you'll surely be low)
1, 2, 3, Ho!

Yeah, yeah
Now shut up, yeah
Yeah, now put some voodoo on it
Ladies and gentlemen, the funkiest horn section in Metropolis
Yeah, oh
We call that classy brass!

I really, really like this vid! Thank you so much - what a fantastic vid to end the con!

Amazing video! It looks like it was done by a professional. Thank you for sharing it with us. :)

YOU MADE MY CON WITH THIS! What an absolutely perfect way to round out the weekend. I've been hoping for a long, long time that someone would vid some Janelle Monae songs and I never never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that the first one I saw would be for Adam Lambert. It makes complete and utter sense and the vid maps his journey so well. It's a perfect song for him and I didn't even realize it before. There are so many parts that make me FLAIL LIEK WOAH ("Something like a Terminator" and "I'm calling you to dinner" especially!). And I appreciate the little subsections that include Kris and Allison too. :D

*squee* I'm not even a hardcore Lambert fan and I just got so sucked into this vid and absorbed in it. Excellent.
Aug. 12th, 2010 04:36 am (UTC)
Ooo, this is absolutely glorious! <3
Aug. 12th, 2010 02:07 pm (UTC)

I don't normally squee over fanvids, but not only was the song choice fantastic, this was really well-edited! I actually teared up a bit. It's been a wild year. Thank you so much for sharing! :)

that's fucking AWESOME.

Great mix of song and subject--really well done.
Aug. 13th, 2010 04:53 am (UTC)
Oh wow, thank you so much for posting this! I love the song choice and energy here. And there are so many great moments, where Adam kicks right when Janelle huffs, or sways his hips to her incredible voice. Yay!
Aug. 13th, 2010 08:30 am (UTC)
great song and clips, this was a lot of fun and a great Adam tribute.
Aug. 13th, 2010 08:58 am (UTC)
That was absolutely delightful! I love how you showed his story. So great.
Aug. 13th, 2010 09:52 am (UTC)
That is an awesome vid. I enjoyed every second of it!
