Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Hollywood


A Week of Marina (Day 5 of 7)

I've posted songs by Marina and the Diamonds before. Visit her official website here:

"I Am Not A Robot"

October 23, 2011:
Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Are You Satisfied?
"Are You Satisfied?" and "Obsessions"

Those three songs are her best, in my opinion. But I've been listening to her album "The Family Jewels" a lot lately and think there are a lot of good songs on it. Not only that, but the whole album does a decent job of capturing how I feel lately.

So ... I'm doing a Week of Marina this week. Read what you want into my song choices.


Fifth song, posted on YouTube by Barney4000:
"Marina & the Diamonds - Hollywood [WITH LYRICS]"

American queen is the American dream
American queen is the American dream

She is a Polish girl in America
Tall, tan, hot blonde called Anya
I asked her Why would you wanna be a Hollywood wife?'
"Because I don't wanna end up living in a dive on Vine"
You'd do anything for a dime
You're looking for the golden life

[Chorus]
Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
Oh oh, (I've been) living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
Oh oh, I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

A fat security making plays for me
As soon as I touch down in, oh, L.A., he said...
"Oh my god, you look just like Shakira
No no, you're Catherine Zeta"
Actually, my name's Marina

Your mind is just like mine
All filled up with things benign
You're looking for the golden life

[Chorus]
Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
Oh oh, (I've been) living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
Oh oh, I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

American dream is the American queen
American queen is the American dream
Is the American dream

Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
Oh oh, (I've been) living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
Oh oh

Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
Oh oh, (I've been) living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
Oh oh
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
