Whatcha Got by Chris Hurn

Director: Aaron Ly

Year: 2011

Monkey Records is proud to present \"Whatcha Got\", the first single from a major new songwriting talent - Chris Hurn. In this infectious debut, Chris reminds us that despite all our day-to-day problems and worries, it\'s important to appreciate the little things in life and that quite often \"you just don\'t know whatcha got\". Inspired by the song\'s indelibly upbeat nature and its unique musical cues, director Aaron Ly felt nothing was more fitting than the image of a lemonade stand in the middle of nowhere. The striking image and notion of a lemonade stand evoked his own memories of youthful ambition and endeavors, and felt others would immediately relate. \"I wanted to revisit the feeling of working towards something not for the result, but for that anticipation and what that feeling carries. As we grow older we lose sight of that.\" The making of the \'Whatcha Got\' music video was shot as quickly as it was conceived. Shot in Whiteman\'s Valley, Upper Hutt \'Whatcha Got\' was a no-budget production, shot over a couple afternoons with a small dedicated cast and crew of six. The result is a whimsical and entertaining music video that disarmingly introduces Chris Hurn\'s presence into the music scene. From Chris\'s debut album \"Too Busy Dreamin\" out now. LYRICS It\'s too easy to tumble on yourself Comforting to hang on to old books on the shelf with easy destinations, without weary knees everybody knows what it looks like but how does it feel (instr.) you give me wrongs get you rights, tell me everythin\' you need but you just dont know whatcha got well you\'re busy flippin\' papers thinkin\' over what you\'re makin\' thinkin\' over what you\'re not it\'s your disease of the soul chippin\' your mind of control well these bones are for breakin\' livin\' underneath your clothes you got it all, you got a lot, more than most people ever come to know you give me wrongs get you rights, tell me everythin\' you need but you just dont know whatcha got (bridge) you give me wrongs get you rights, tell me everythin\' you need but you jus don\'t know whatcha got Before the needle hits the sun when you\'re countin\' every step til the day is done take your time, take it slow, drink your wine well use your hands, use your eyes, hold someone you give me wrongs get you rights, tell me everythin\' you need x 3 but you just don\'t know whatcha got oh you just don\'t know whatcha got mm you just don\'t know whatcha got oh you just don\'t know whatcha got
