For location alone, “Hero” will always get my vote.  Overall, I’ve seen some pretty intense music video sets.  However, the fact that this is on a helipad and would probably scare the ever-living hell out of me just walking up the steps earns props in my book.

I love the simplicity in the background of this video.  There’s less focus on the things around them and less distractions with the settings and instead you’re automatically drawn towards the dancing and focusing on the guys.  It was a smart choice since this is probably one of the most fun dances!  I liked the small touch of having multiple times of day for filming, since near the end of the song, having that evening light really sets the stage.

Overall, this is probably one of the most catchy songs since the hook “I can be your Hero, I can be your man” is sung in such a way that you can’t get it out of your head.  Vocals in this song are also definitely on par.

Lyrics:

As I watched over you all day
I discovered just one problem, yeah
All those fake, wolf-like guys
who keep bothering you

No, you’re mine,
I have the duty to protect you
I’ll protect you
so no one can ever take you easily

You’re so beautiful that I have many enemies
It’s like playing a game to protect the princess
Don’t worry, I’m your man
I can be your hero, I can be your hero,
I can be your hero

I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man

I can be your hero, all villains get back
I’ll wrap up all the bad guys
and put them in the next truck
Every single one of them look like a beast,
throw em away at the zoo
They’re just all talk,
spitting out nonsense to have you
(What?) If you thought I was easy,
eat a mushroom and grow bigger
Put on underwear over your pants and put on a cape
Sometimes wear a suit,
shine a light from your chest, we shine
Everyone bow your head

This is my last warning
When I get mad, I change scarily
I’ll protect you
so no one can ever take you easily

You’re so beautiful that I have many enemies
It’s like playing a game to protect the princess
Don’t worry, I’m your man
I can be your hero, I can be your hero,
I can be your hero

I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man

At I’ll take out all your villains
like bang bang bang bang
I’ll fly around
in the sky like Superman
I’m gonna hang on the edge of your lips
and make you smile like Batman
I’ll tell all the villains
who make you cry to go away

I can be your hero

I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man
I can be your hero, I can be your man

This dance is probably one of my favorites they’ve done so far.  They dance has a far more serious vibe to it than the previous videos and performances they’ve done.  It mixes really well with the tone of the song.

Overall, this song and music video are a lot of fun.  The roof-top shots are crazy cool, and knowing that a certain member is a tad scared of heights made it even more of a statement, whether it was intended to be or not.  The song is catchy as all hell and the dance makes even me want to try it out.
