"Music Gets the Best of Me" is a song by British singer-songwriter Sophie Ellis-Bextor, released as the fourth and final single from her debut solo album, Read My Lips. The single was one of two new tracks which appeared on the re-issue of the album in 2002, it peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart. The song also had two different music videos.

Music video[edit]

There are two different music videos for the song. Both are directed by Sophie Muller, the first shows Ellis-Bextor in a typical British seaside setting, singing, playing, and dancing in daylight, both on the beach and in the water; at the end, she is at a night carnival. In much of the video, she wears headphones, as if listening to music, this video was the one released for television. The second video shows Ellis-Bextor going in to a dinner party uninvited; she puts on her headphones and begins to perform, going from room to room; and ends by claiming that she had fun and leaving. This version was featured as an extra on her home video Watch My Lips.
