Your Starting Point/Superstar

Owner: Venturesome Genre: Hard Rock Total Plays: 59
Quick Summary:

The story of sometimes forced fame on child or teen stars.

Media Description:

This would be the start of a CD I'm planning to put out sometime next year.à The song was partially inspired by the Montrose song, "Rock Candy."à I was in a classic rock cover band once where we did "Ah Leah," by Donnie Iris.à I took the vocals on that one, and did all the high parts towards the end.à The other guys were impressed by that and the job I did asking in jest if I had tightened my pants big time.à àI decided with this song, I would do the same stuff as I didn't feel I could do a genuine cover justice on my own.à à I got help from a friend in linking the two pieces with the applause sound for a live audience feel.

It's the story of the song

You can help and sing along

It happens all the time from day to day

You know her mom and her dad

They love her but they're mad

She's gonna be a star and it's not her choice

Just keep holding her down

Til they make her come around

Til she knows she gonna be a superstar

And there ain't no turning back

Now her agents and managers

In her ear they whisper

About what she can and cannot do

Cause if she speaks her mind

They're gonna pull the blinds

No opinions or tastes are allowed


She wants to take her chances

But they won't catch her when she falls

If they were to set her free

Would she disappear or keep on going

And as for me you know it's plain to see

I can do my own thing and take my time

I didn't make no big time but don't spare a dime

I can get my riches on my own

And they can't hold me down

They can't make me come around

And in my way a superstar

And there ain't no turning back
