Bands In The Woods Wednesday: Talk Talk’s – “Life’s What You Make It” Video

The forest is very alive in Talk Talk’s “Life’s What You Make It” video. Directed by Tim Pope.

Today, in Bands In the Woods Wednesday we thought we do it a little different, instead of featuring a photo or album cover, why not do a video? We have the time and what would be more poignant or poetic right now that Talk Talk ‘s 1986 “Life’s What You Make It” video, from there “The Colour Of Spring” (1986) album, coincidentally spring happened last week. For those kept in captivity, you could hardly notice, but as the song goes: “Life’s What You Make It.”

“Life’s What You Make It” was filmed in the Wimbledon Park by director Tim Pope who has done a ton of music videos (for the Cure, Rush, other Talk Talk videos and more). These shots presumably took place in the more foresty parts and features the band with a wide array of frolicking animals, reptiles and insects. Spotlights add a surreal element like a forest animal rave.

Talk Talk – “Life’s What You Make It” Lyrics

Baby, life’s what you make it
Can’t escape it

Baby, yesterday’s favorite
Don’t you hate it

Baby life’s what you make it
Don’t back date it

Baby, don’t try to shade it
Beauty is naked

Baby, life’s what you make it
Celebrate it
Anticipate it
Yesterday’s faded
Nothing can change it
Life’s what you make it
