You wake, you run errands, you get tired and you run your routine all over again. Millions of ideas race around your head as you try to figure out where your life is and where it's headed. And then, you come across a striking glance from a beautiful woman who shakes up your entire world. Now all of your thoughts are attracted to meeting this woman. You prepare your first move, your opening line, your perfect scenario where you can talk to her; only to have your dreams foiled by your anxieties and misconceptions.

The new single "Don't Say No" from the rock band Dream Alive definitely brings life to the endless love trife between meeting a woman and what to say. However when you take the chance, don't say no to what could happen because Dream Alive assures it'll be well worth it.

The video is actually directed by prestigious Hollywood producer Irving Ong. The concept is very organic as it follows both the band while using the classic "helpless romantic" trifecta of characters as protagonists. The video shows Dream Alive on stage playing for their fans at a concert. However the video then cuts to a scene of a young man trying to get into his car but is blinded by the sun, and a beautiful woman who is slowly approaching him. His nerves begin to wreck him as he is struck by her blinding beauty, just to find out that she was coming over to tell him he's in a no parking zone.

The comedic motif is crucial in the story as it follows the young man on his quest to attain the young beautiful woman. As the video progresses we are introduced to a man who smokes a cigarette and carelessly throws it away in a non smoking area in front of the protagonist. He then picks it up with a look of disdain and with his luck, he sees the woman looking right at him with a smirk on her face. Quickly we realize that the smoker is the antagonist of the video as he scene evolves into a laundry mat where you see him talking to the woman. The protagonist is seen with his head down as he summoned the courage to invite her to see Come Alive perform.

The video crescendos into the live performance of the band where everyone is having a good time, except for the protagonist. It's there, where like an angel, the beautiful woman gently strides her way to the protagonist and the rest is left for the imagination.

The video is simple, yet elegant in that it uses real backdrops and leaves room for the storyline. As mentioned it's very character driven which engages the audience in, leaving the song "Don't Say No" as the soundtrack to a move as opposed to a music video. The creativity lies in the lighting of the video. Even when the band is playing at their concert, different sun dogs and rays of light shine on the band members adding an aura to the video. Now the lighting plays a huge role with the "Love Story" by using it as a metaphor of an angel on the gorgeous woman. This creates a sense of desire and leads the audience to naturally root fr the protagonist. Overall, the video is an excellent example of capturing a compelling story through the lens of a creative persona using simple but bold resources. Dream Alive has struck gold with this gem of a song and can bolster their sonic treasure with the video to accompany it.
