Music video

Production and reception

After much speculation on when and even if a video would be released, the video was finally released on AOL on January 10, 2007. [ [] "" ] The video was co-directed by Dean Karr and Jay Martin (Karr directed the performance scenes while Martin did the narrative scenes).

The video debuted at #1 on VH1's VSpot Top 20 Countdown the first week it was eligible for voting. It remained #1 on the countdown for four weeks until it dropped down to the #2 position and was replaced by Blue October's "Into the Ocean". However, the following week it reclaimed the #1 spot again. It spent 14 weeks on the countdown (9 of them at #1) before the video became ineligible for voting due to the band's new video for "Home."


It begins with a man lying in bed while he has a flashback of himself gathering his personal effects upon release from prison. A woman is then shown picking him up after his release; they hug and hold hands along the way. After a time they stop at a store. While he is inside, she has a flashback to when she first heard the news of his arrest, and we see that she was pregnant at the time. The man gets back in the car with a stuffed rabbit. They then arrive at the woman's home, and there is a young girl inside, presumably the couple's daughter. The woman is seen explaining something to the girl while the man waits outside. He then enters and gives the toy to his daughter that he has never met before. After a reluctant moment, the two hug.

The video cuts back to the couple lying in bed, and they seem to be distant; when he attempts to touch her, she pulls away. Intercut with this scene is the man looking for a job, which proves to be unsuccessful. He walks by and enters several stores, none of which are hiring. He passes a jewelry store, and all the recent positive events flash before him: his release, his daughter, and a rosary. He then notices a "Help Wanted" sign and inquires inside the garage; he gets the job as a car mechanic. He again passes the jewelry store, and sees brief flashes of the couple making love, his booking photos and a cross. He is then seen working in the shop, apparently now employed. One night, as his girlfriend waits for him — visibly upset — he is shown entering the jewelry store. When he finally arrives home, his girlfriend opens the door wondering where he's been, he drops to one knee and presents the ring; the girlfriend is overjoyed, and the video ends with the two embracing.

Intercut throughout the video are scenes with scenes of the band playing the song in an immaculate looking grand room, it is of the main atrium of the Hall of Records in New York.



Most critics found "It's Not Over" to be catchy and a solid first single. "Billboard" magazine called "It's Not Over" a "tight, focused and ready to rock your face off" single that "overflows with harmonies and axe leads that suck you in out of the box." [M. B. (December 2, 2006) [ "It's Not Over"] . "Billboard". 118 (48):46] "Entertainment Weekly" found the song "ridiculously catchy". [Gundersen, Edna (March 21, 2007), [ "It's just beginning for Chris Daughtry"] . "USA Today".:1d] Daniel Wolfe of said the band does "a great job of telling the story of a relationship gone wrong," ultimately giving the song three and a half out of five stars. [Wolfe, Daniel (2006). [ "Daughtry - It's Not Over"] Retrieved September 20, 2007] There has been some talk of the single's similarity to the Fuel's song, "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)", which Chris Daughtry performed on "American Idol".Fact|date=December 2007

The pedal settings, for the BOSS CE-5 Chorus Ensemble, ML-2 Metal Core & CS-3 Compression/Sustainer, allow readers to get the actual sound of the song as it appears on the Daughtry record.
