LYRICS:

Star of the Bollywood Screen

She’s the red-hot star of the Bollywood screen
Most beautiful woman that I’ve ever seen - she’s magic
My friends all tell me that I’m out of mind
“You’ve seen all her movies like a million times - that’s tragic!”

They don’t know what I know. They don’t feel what I feel
So they can’t accept my love for her is real.


Night after night on the silver screen
Is where I see the girl of my dreams - she’s glowing
But masala movies are no longer enough
Got a ticket to Mumbai, I’ve packed my stuff – and I’m going

If they knew what I know. If they felt what I feel
They’d accept my love for her is real.


Monday morning; Film City Road
Haven’t seen her yet but she’s gonna show, I’m certain
My heart is pounding like thousand drums
She’s just gotta hear it before the final curtain

Then she’ll know what I know. She’ll feel what I feel
She’ll know my love for her is real.


She’s the red-hot star of the Bollywood screen
Most beautiful woman that I’ve ever seen - she’s magic
My friends all tell me that I’m out of mind
“You’ve seen all her movies like a million times - that’s tragic!”

Ghost,

What an awesome opening—totally conveys the vibe . . . and then the vocal kicks in with those terrific lyrics . . . boy, what a cool song this is. From a production standpoint it’s pretty darn stellar . . . though I’m wondering if the vocal is a tad (and I mean just a tad) muted—maybe just a touch hotter? I also think you need to develop and elongate the ending a bit more—it’s a short tune as it stands. You could add thirty seconds on to this and it would still be short and sweet, allowing you to develop a smoother close. As it stands it seem to fade to abruptly.

Really sweet tune, Ghost. Very impressed!

Regards,

Deej

Very well and boldly done to make this mix of music styles! I really think it works... especially because your mixing is very good and clean. I agree about the ending which feels a bit abrupt, but that doesn't take away from a very fine song (and you have a very pleasant voice to listen to as well).

Thanks a lot for sharing this little masterpiece!

Great intro and rhythms throughout the entire song, great job on that! Your lyrics could have been sung by any teenage boy!

Your vocal was perfect for this. Your lyrics are some of the best I have heard on these forums.

I think this is your best to date.

Nicely done - really unique, and a fine example of Band-in-a-Box's versatility. I agree with Mario above me too - the vocals and lyrics are both perfectly fitting for this.

Thanks for sharing smile

The instrumentation hooked me from the onset and it didn't let go of me until the song was over.

I really like your vocal delivery here, the urgency in the voice.

Good set of creative lyrics.

Thanks, Ezekiel's Storm.
As Deej56 pointed out, the original version seemed to fade out too fast and was quite short anyway. Consequently, I gave it a quick makeover with a repeated last verse and slightly increased volume and depth on the vocals.

Hi Ghosgum,

that is a really cool one!

Nice and fresh lyrics, great usage of a RealStyle that's really not inspiring a song-writer at first glance, lovely cocals - liked it a lot.

Cheers,

Stefan

Love it!

The only thing it lacks is a bridge where the dance number fits in. wink

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

This is fantastic!

You really have an outstanding songwriting and song-arranging ability.

From start to end this is exceptionally well crafted and it's produced with talent and flair. I thoroughly enjoyed listening.

All the best,
Noel
