"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. Although the song was widely acclaimed, it did not do so well on the charts, only peaking at #14 on the UK Singles Chart, and fairing poorly on the ARIA Singles Chart. The song also had two different music videos.

Music video

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 experience, 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'.
