- The length of the song is more appropriate. The Wet Wet Wet version lasts "2.47", whilst the Beatles version was just over 2 minutes which would not be long enough to incorporate both Narrative and Performance aspects as well as possible, as well as not allowing enough time to show off all the skills we have learnt from the course.
- The Beatles version had already been covered over 1,600 times as has previously been mentioned. This means that it will already have been re-branded a number of times and for youth audiences. The Wet Wet Wet version however, would provide us with the chance to originally rebrand the song and video.
- For the coursework, we would need access to a full, studio quality version of the song. This would be possible if we used Wet Wet Wet.
- The song we chose was not allowed to have a video that had been released in the last ten years. This limited us to songs with no official video, or songs that were over ten years old. This was very frustrating when thinking about using a video that was around 7/8 years old, as were many of my initial ideas.
- The song had to be less than four minutes in length, but also had to be long enough to allow us the oppurtunity to showcase all the required skills.
- The song was not allowed to have bad language/over the top sexual references.
