Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
And everyone's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are
And those who are successful
Be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along Hollywood Boulevard
The Kinks, and their song Celluloid Heroes. In honor of the Oscars this evening. I'll be attending a chi-chi fund-raiser for the local AIDS Resources Coalition.
I always loved this song; used to drag it out now and then on the open-mic circuit. I have a close friend who is struggling with a career in the arts, and I often think of her when I hear this song.
I think its time to crank up the turn-table and flip through four sides of the Kink Kronikles today....
