Story

The title track of my CD "THE FAME GAME" is a study of the search for fame and love in the glitz and fast pace of Los Angeles or NYC...it is not about a specific person but a review of the cross-section of individuals who's names are 'legion'--whether male or female--who--as the song states--are "trying to maintain the high life they[she] disdains". Other songs on the CD explore these themes as well so I thought an appropriate title for my first release would be "THE FAME GAME" to underscore a thematic core that runs through the CD.

Lyrics

THE FAME GAME She wants the finer things All that money brings And so she'll hitch her train To a Sugar Daddy's cane And cruise the fastest lane And so she says "she's saved" 'Cause her road is always paved She dreams she sees her name In neon lights aflame She's caught up in the Fame Game Chorus: She's walking out on the wire Chasing her hearts desire Wasting away her entire life She is a frequent flyer Playing with friendly fire She thinks she's found what she needs But it's all uninspired She handpicks all her friends From the parties she attends They're always VIP's Their money grows on trees But she can't afford their fees And she calls it 'happiness' Her fleeting state of bliss She wants critical acclaim But they can't recall her name She's caught up in the Fame Game (Chorus) Oh--doo doo doo doo doo doo.... She thinks she's found what she needs... She cries herself to sleep 'Cause the pain is much too deep From trying to maintain The high life she disdains Welcome to the Fame Game (Chorus) Oh--doo doo doo doo doo doo... She thinks she's finally carefree but it's all uninspired... Ooh...doo doo doo.. Mmmm...all uninspired... Welcome to the Fame Game....yeah
