Description
Written about such TV shows as Pop Idol etc. How it is a false way to get famous.
This didn't take that long to put together, and I really like the guitar work.
Thanks for Listening!

Lyrics
He walked on the stage with the lights shining bright
He looked like a kid who was scared of the height
He danced like the wind and he dressed like prince
He raised up the mic, when he sang he made me wince

The crowd adored him thought he could do no wrong
But I was disgusted, he ruined my favourite song
The votes were all counted the announcement was made
He won with a landslide I closed my eyes and preyed

Hey there with the stars in your eyes
Hey there you can't see the big disguise

You'll live like a king and you'll drive fast cars
You'll play to the princes, you'll meet girls in high-class bars
They'll promise the world and deliver a taste
But those lights will fade and then shine on another face

Hey there with the stars in your eyes
Hey there you can't see the big surprise
Hey there with the stars in your eyes
Hey there you can't see the big disguise

You're about the guitars
Guitars are super on this. Good idea for a song, concerning the pop idol thing. "He ruined my favorite song", that's a great line.
I know it didn't take long to put together, but all the great ones are done quickly.

Great going AJ!

Hi Adam
Graet tune - kinda REM guitars, which i love. Guess we wont see with Simon Cowell anytime soon! A favourite topic of mine this, great lyric!

I wasnt
aware of the REM type guitar until I listened to it a few times after it was finished. But I can hear it.
Thanks for your comments.

Great message for
the various tv show contestants. The best ones rarely win; it's more about looks and personality. I really like the lyrics- you say it so well The contestants get their minute of fame, and next week someone else will take their place while they fade into obscurity. Love the vocals and guitars, too!

GREAT to hear a song about this subject - I've missed that !(!) I hate (or being polite I should say 'like less') those tvshows...so this song means alot - as alot of People think as You /me/or something like it . In Sweden we have shows & school for young people who want to become famous/artists...I feel it discusting if I may say so but I know some actually DO get famous....but what about all the others??? Who are having to put up with the "mobbing" "judges" etc... Hope You do another on this topis : ) You have a very very nice voice...sounds like You have even more to it - like its not at its full potential yet - it can only get BEETTER : ) : ) : ) ThankYou

Comments are much apreciated, I hope you take the time to listen to my other work. Yes sometimes I do hold back with my vocals, I guess I need to be more confident.

Great
What a great tune... Good melody... And really thoughtful lyric.... The lead guitar has a good sound... And the chorus, with more vocals, sounds great... Thanks for sharing this song and lyric...

Tuneful
Great job. Memorable chorus and guitar hook are the high points for me. Maybe you could get a chorus of MJers to sing along with you on the the chorus :D Super Song

Thanks
