The Kinks . Celluloid Heroes

Hacer una referencia a Kinks no me correspondería a mí, pues zoloft controla inifinitamente más que yo sobre esta banda.
Pero esta coplilla es una de las mejores de ellos para mi gusto. Diría más, es una de mis coplillas favoritas en general.

Hoy va un recordatorio pues :)



Y ahí os queda la estupenda letra de la misma:

Everybodys a dreamer and everybodys a star,
And everybodys in movies, it doesnt matter who you are.
There are stars in every city,
In every house and on every street,
And if you walk down hollywood boulevard
Their names are written in concrete!

Dont step on greta garbo as you walk down the boulevard,
She looks so weak and fragile thats why she tried to be so hard
But they turned her into a princess
And they sat her on a throne,
But she turned her back on stardom,
Because she wanted to be alone.

You can see all the stars as you walk down hollywood boulevard,
Some that you recognise, some that youve hardly even heard of,
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.
Rudolph valentino, looks very much alive,
And he looks up ladies dresses as they sadly pass him by.
Avoid stepping on bela lugosi
cos hes liable to turn and bite,
But stand close by bette davis
Because hers was such a lonely life.
If you covered him with garbage,
George sanders would still have style,
And if you stamped on mickey rooney
He would still turn round and smile,
But please dont tread on dearest marilyn
cos shes not very tough,
She should have been made of iron or steel,
But she was only made of flesh and blood.

You can see all the stars as you walk down hollywood boulevard,
Some that you recognise, some that youve hardly even heard of.
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

Everybodys a dreamer and everybodys a star
And everybodys in show biz, it doesnt matter who you are.

And those who are successful,
Be always on your guard,
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along hollywood boulevard.

I wish my life was a non-stop hollywood movie show,
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes,
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die.

You can see all the stars as you walk along hollywood boulevard,
Some that you recognise, some that youve hardly even heard of,
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

Oh celluloid heroes never feel any pain
Oh celluloid heroes never really die.

I wish my life was a non-stop hollywood movie show,
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes,
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die.

Una canción que habla de cine, por fuerza me tiene que gustar.
Sobre todo si menciona a Bela Lugosi, Bette Davis y George Sanders :-)
Me parece estupenda esta línea, sobre todo: "celluloid heroes never really die".

No conozco mucho de The Kinks, pero hay una canción suya que está entre mi música favorita: "Come dancing".
El vídeo que hicieron no tiene desperdicio, ni tampoco la letra. Aunque yo no salgo casi nunca a bailar, hay una frase con la que me identifico:
"My sister should have come in at midnight / And my mum would always sit up and wait / It always ended up in a big row / When my sister used to get home late"
Supongo que a muchos nos ha pasado algo así :-)

De acuerdo, muzak: tenías razón. Me habías enviado la canción y, con mi despiste habitual, lo había olvidado.

¿Ves como cuando tienes razón, aunque sea siempre en temas insignificantes, lo reconozco sin problemas? :-p

Me alegro de no haber aceptado la apuesta. Pero ya sabes que yo sólo apuesto sobre seguro :-)
