Get as many interesting angles and as much footage as you can. Think about the editing, think about the style of music videos. A lot of rapid cutting, nobody wants to sit there and watch a straight on shot for 3 minutes. You have to keep it dynamic and keep people's attention. Thanks to MTV, most of our attention spans are about as long as a chipmunk's on speed.
Thanks for your feed back!

But if you're worried about coverage, yeah, get all your long, mediums & closeups, from various angles. And do a few more takes where the camera is doing tracking shots, trucking sideways, overhead, etc... The more coverage you can afford to get, the better, I say.
