"Joining a Fan Club" as written by Roger Manning and Andy Sturmer....
She turned the nightlight on a blew him a kiss.
He stared back through is green crayola eyes.
She traced his likeness from off the back of a disc.
Next to the boxtop promise of the biggest prize.
Joining a fan club with my friends.
Filling our bathtubs with tee shirts and 8 x 10's.
He looks so dreamy,
I'm in love from afar.
When I'm picking up a fallen star.
Downstairs the late show's blasting 'age of the rock'.
The greedy monks playin' last Sunday at the milky way.
Mom's writing checks to the minister in the corner singing 'dig
Down deep'.
'Cause if you wanna go to heaven all you gotta so is pay to pray.

Joining a fan club with my pen.
Filling my bathtub with Holy water and amens.
He looks so dreamy,
I'm in love from afar.
When I'm picking up a fallen star.
Shake that woody.
Shake it for me St. Pinocchio.
You've paid your money, now watch that money grow.
Joining a fan club, best be warned.
He turns me on when he wears that lampshade corwn of thorns.
We'd be so dreamy,
Sharing his black caviar.
While I'm picking up a fallen star.
Joining a fan club is a big mistake.
I still get heartburn when I think about all of the stamps I ate.

I wished I'd loved him,
Before fate crashed his car.
Say a prayer for the fallen star.

    General CommentThis song is about the commercialization of religion, how televangelists and other charismatic religious "leaders" build cults of personality around themselves only to turn around and exploit their naive followers.

    Musically, the song is Jellyfish's most Queen-like, which is awesome.

    Kind of odd that out of all of their songs, this was the one the Puffy AmiYumi covered though.

    General Commentthis is about really worshiping a rockstar but it is parralled with the ideaology of the church. my fave of all jellyfish lines is Andy singing "shake that woody" which of course is a parallel to the cross and the pinocchio is the lies of the church "give us your money and watch your wealth expand...." have you seen the video, it is one of the earliest of jelly and it is on u tube.

    General Commentdoes anyone know if this song is directed at a particular star?

    i feel like it represents that feeling of mysticism and power one feel when you get obseesed with a supertar enigma. the irony is that thugh you might feel your support is incredibly powerful, it really doesnt mean a thing

    General CommentI was wondering if it might be Marc Bolan - he was worshiped by a generation and died in a car crash...
