Blinded By The Pop Stars (and other songs)


Blinded By The Pop Stars by tinytide

When it became quite clear I was about to make a whole album from "impossible love songs", a DJ friend of mine named Kaypea accused me to be "blinded by the pop stars". And of course she was terribly right, but the very moment she said that instead of having any psychological reaction I went like:"Hey! That's a marvellous title for a pop song!". And so her we are, with this little Smitthesque tribute filled with Jennifer Lewis and Karen O.

This post reminded me that while I'm proceeding to record vocals in a real studio, I've also spent time carrying on other two songs meant to be some sort of duets with two almost acclaimed indie pop girls. That's the chance to post the lyrics in case I forget how they goes!

One song is about an Italian adventurer and hero from 1800 called Garibaldi meeting the Indonesian equivalent of Cinderella, while the other is about me writing short stories about Nina Persson from Cardigans (I really did!).

Songs are still "Under Construction", still you can try to imagine how they will sounds like with a little help from the lyrics.

BLINDED BY THE POP STARS

Little princess Natalie
in psychological waars
got to win your Globe Awaards
helping me is the role

Scarlett Scarlett sing along
you got to whisper that horse
he's a fool in a ghost world
you're not meant for him at all

Jennifer suggests
I won't live without her
as I'm modeling worlds I will forget no more

MIlla can't you see
THere's nothing left to fear
though I can't tell you're real
or real fantasy, because...


I was blinded by the pop stars
Baby I was blinded by the pop stars
And I'm burning my eyes
setting my thoughts on fire
selling my world to the franchise

blinded by the pop stars
Baby I was blinded by the pop stars
it's so hard to resist
when I look at the screen
electromagnetic cute sights

and there is a girl that never goes out....

Karen left me with an Oh
turning me into some strange playboy
but it's mia who won my soul
with her unsual joy


Jenny Lewis is having fun
she's available now
Neko just won't let me down
as long as she is around

Fiona loves and hates
I can't live without her
as she tells her friends
I'm one of her casual guests


Pin-up Sammy Fox
can't touch you without pop
a bubble framed my heart
I know it's about to blast

and there is a girl that never goes out....
that will never never never cross my path downtown

and there is a girl that never goes out....
and I'll never never never see her leave that house

WHEN GARY MET PUTIH

Not a patriot revolution
just a way to show the world
freedom was a resolution
to get close to his real love
He was told that fame and glory
were awaiting in seaports
but he couldn't stop from wondering
on a home to call his own

But I hope
that you'll come
They say France is thorned by war
and a life
by the sea
won't deny this chance to me


Gary! Garybaldi
he was wounded at the heart
for she had him still so damn fast
he just couldn't stop her dart
She was swinging by a sweet swing
she was singing silly songs
When the man came on to see her
had a look and turned to a stone

Garibaldi cought a gold fish
he was swimming in the sea
and the fish he fished was talking
for he once was a real king
He told:"Gary go to Java
there's a princess you must save"
So the merchand marine captain
Took an oath to save his dreams

But I hope
You won't sleep
I'm so far from Italy
hurry up
dance with me
don't deny this chance to me


Gary! Garybaldi
he was wounded at the heart
for she had him still so damn fast
he just couldn't stop her dart
She was swinging by a sweet swing
she was singing silly songs
When the man came on to see her
had a look and turned to a stone

SHORT STORIES 'BOUT NINA

Lying in bed I keep thinking of you
you drove me mad it's so true
Since we got through on a carnival cruise
I spend my days with no clue

Nobody cared when I entered the room
It was a cold afternoon
ready to play on the smallest venue
Nobody came... but you

And you were just oversight
fancy dream to come alive
stuck in a trip between lines

Writing short stories 'bout Nina
Writing love stories 'bout you
Meeting my dear ballerina
Trying so hard to catch you

And I'm so very super blue
don't turn off your Abajour

Writing sweet stories 'bout Nina
Inking more pages on you
faking a place I could meet her
Fool's paradise coming true

Leading a band must be hard in the end
struggling with fans and the press
I hope someday you could get your revenge
you can hang on here'till then

It was a blast when the last light went off
rocking the cheap stage for sure
Your dreamy eyes set on me, eagerly
no secret you couldn't read

And I am dust in your mind
Lazy boy get a life
You Shouldn't waste all this time...

Writing short stories 'bout Nina
Writing love stories 'bout you
Meeting my dear ballerina
Trying so hard to catch you


Writing short stories 'bout Nina
Writing love stories 'bout you
Meeting my dear ballerina
Trying so hard to catch you

When it's clearly a stupid lie
A bad fiction for juveniles
inner spaces that won't be mine
throwing shadows on my blue eyes
Come grow up
please wake up
