Gone Hollywood submitted 2009.05.20 10:03 AM by Thornicus viewed 1945 times

Modern rock cover of "Gone Hollywood" - the opening track to Supertramp's "Breakfast in America" album.

I arranged and recorded this as a submission to a compilation project entitled "Breakfast in Coverville", which is a brainchild of Brian Ibbott, producer and owner of the Coverville podcast. Thought you all might enjoy hearing the track as well. You can download the entire project here.

Pretty simple arrangement in terms of number of tracks to record - just drums, bass guitar, lead and rhythm electric guitars, lead vocals, and two background vocals. Shouldn't be too hard to guess which instruments are my strong suit. :P

Lyrics posted below for your convenience. Granted, I can't claim ownership to the lyrics as I didn't write them, but all comments and suggestions pertaining to the musical arranging and recording are much welcomed!


It's just heartbreaking
I should have known that it would let me down
It's just a mind aching
I used to dream about this town

It was a sight to see
The place to be
Where the living is easy
And the kicks can always be found

It's such a shame about it
I used to think that it would feel so good
But who's to blame about it
So many creeps in hollywood

I'm in this dumb motel
Near the Taco Bell
Without a hope in hell
I can't believe that I'm still around

Ain't nothin' new in my life today
Ain't nothing true, it's all gone away

I've had too much cryin', seen too much grief
I'm sick of tryin', it's beyond belief
I'm tired of talking on the telephone
They're trying to tell me that they're not at home

Ain't nothing new in my life today

I'm tired of walking from place to place
I've yet to come across a friendly face
And now the words sound familiar, as them slam the door
"You're not what we're looking for"

Ain't nothing new in my life today
Ain't nothing true, its all gone away

If we only had time, only had time for you
If we only had time, only had time for you
If we only had time, only had time for you

It was a heartbreaking
Now I ride in the big fine car
It was mind aching
Yeah, I'm the talk of the boulevard

So keep your chin up boy
Forget the pain
I know you'll make it
If you try again

There's no use in quitting
When the world is waiting for you
