Location - Los Angeles, California, United States of America
Date - March 1996
Director - Kevin Bray
Video Producer - Doug Friedman
Comments - This video was based on the 1960's television show 'The Avengers' and had the same theme as that show. The black and white rooms and clever mirrored visual tricks gave the video an old fashioned and psychedelic feel and even the style of the bands cloths and hair styles added to the 1960's look. Clever visual trickery was responsible for both the mirrored effects and the Corrs looking like Giants against the furniture which Jim said was made using tiny props. Caroline mentioned that even though they left the video design to the experts, various pieces that they didn't like were taken out and replaced. Jim also mentioned that this was a tiring time as the making of this video and the video for "Forgiven Not Forgotten" which was shot the day before resulted in two very long days. They had to get up at 6:00 in the morning to be at the studio for the start of shooting at 7.00 and worked on both days through to 11:00 at night.
"The Right Time" was targeted at pop radio by Atlantic US, hence the video theme of 60's pop tinged with psychedelia, and the bands new haircuts and publicity photos. (The new style lasted a week or so before The Corrs' classic look returned).
Warner's International territories released "Forgiven Not Forgotten" as the second single from the album of the same name, while Atlantic US went straight to "The Right Time".
"The right time" video was originally filmed and released with the "radio edit - dance mix" version, promo was done with this version too, but you can also find the video with the album version in the "best of the corrs DVD".
"The Right Time" was The Corrs' first song to be recorded in a studio.
