I was in an art gallery, and a painting caught my eye. I stood looking for some time. Couldn't afford it sadly, but I noticed some postcards of the painting for visitors to take - so I took a couple. I just felt drawn to it. Turned the card over to see who it was by and what it was called.

All I Wanted Was Rock Star Status by Kate Pritchard.

I had a title for a song!

Rock Star Status
(Deep Blue Sea)

Oh. Look at the stars up in the sky - My oh my
Look at the stars waving goodbye - Bye bye bye

Everybody here gets Rock Star Status
There’s no point now cos everbody’s famous
It’s nobody's fault But everybody hates us
It’s nobody's fault But nothings gonna save us

Everybody here gets Rock Star Status
A little applause and admiration
15 seconds of adoration
A lethal dose of adulation

Oh. Look at the stars up in the sky - My oh my
Look at the stars waving goodbye - Bye bye bye

Everybody here gets Rock Star Status
A pocket full of dreams and a ticket to Vegas
Hold on tight, you're making the papers
O/D-ed celebrities are coming back to plague us

Everybody here gets Rock Star Status
VIPs in the Palace of Gratis
Take a little taste of the breathing apparatus
A finger on the pulse of the phallic operators

Oh. Look at the stars up in the sky - My oh my
Look at the stars waving goodbye - Bye bye bye

All we ever wanted was Rock Star Stuff
Everything now and it's still not enough
Keep it coming cos we're Rock Star Tough
Keep it coming til we choke on the stuff

Oh. Look at the stars up in the sky - My oh my
Look at the stars waving goodbye - Bye bye bye

Oh. Look at the stars up in the sky - My oh my
Look at the stars waving goodbye - Bye bye bye
