For 7/14/19 ~ “Ghost Town”

Jim Adams our host with the most gives us Haunted/Magic/Mystery/Supernatural/Trick as prompts for #SLS 7/14/19.  Once again I sit with analysis paralysis because there are too many songs from which to choose.  I am a kid in the candy store though as I listened to several tunes before landing on Ghost Town by Adam Lambert.

I think this song is within the theme even if not exactly.  I picked the song mainly because I recently watched a biography on Adam Lambert & Queen.  He’s super talented and devilishly handsome.  Though the latter is not a reason to pick someone.  Guess I am feeding into the social norms which I despise.  That is a topic for another day.  Working title Beauty is Skin Deep but Ugly Goes Straight to the Core (a play on the Dorothy Parker quote).  Stop it Jilly, today let’s be cheery shall we?

Ghost Town has sort of a techno beat.  Make me want to dance and sing along.  Hope you enjoy.

Died last night in my dreams
Walking the streets
Of some old ghost town
I tried to believe
In God and James Dean
But Hollywood sold out

Saw all of the saints
Lock up the gates
I could not enter
Walked into the flames
Called out your name
But there was no answer

And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

Died last night in my dreams
All the machines
Had been disconnected
Time was thrown at the wind
And all of my friends
Had been disaffected

Now, I’m searching for trust
In a city of rust
A city of vampires
Tonight, Elvis is dead
And everyone’s spread
And love is a satire

And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

There’s no one left in the world
I’m gunslingin’
[Regular version:] Don’t give a fuck if I go
[Music video version:] Don’t give a damn if I go
Down, down, down
I got a voice in my head that keeps singing
Oh, my heart is a ghost town

My heart is a ghost town
Oh, my heart is a ghost town
(Said, my heart)
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

    1. I didn’t watch Idol by then so I was not a fan at first. Only after watching the bio did I realize his reach. Musicians are some of the best collaborators across all genres.

      I feel that way about most videos. Even the less strobe-y appear to be the artists or their management trying to again market share. Most are off the wall but maybe that is how one gets attention.
