"Andy Warhol Said" as written by and Luke Morley....
Showbiz kids and all their schemes
Big plans as empty as their dreams
They all got confidence to spare
Feel the ambition if you dare, yeah

You want it all now, and it doesn't matter how
You can't dance or sing, but that don't mean a thing
'Cos it's not what you do, it's who you are
And you'd sell your mum and dad to be where you are

And what Andy Warhol said was right, maybe
Everyone gets a shot if they're good enough or not
We'll all be celebrities in time in pantomime

Skin deep, should I jump onto the heap
'Cos I'm still here, is it time I disappeared?
Music should always move along
But this many people can't be wrong

If what Andy Warhol said was right, baby
I guess I must be wrong, my fifteen minutes gone
Do you mind if I get in the queue in front of you?

You're all just off your time, I guess I can't put the blame on you

Showbiz kids and all their schemes
Big plans as empty as their dreams
They all got confidence to spare
Feel the ambition if you dare

And what Andy Warhol said was right, maybe
Everyone gets a shot if they're good enough or not
We'll all be celebrities in time in our time

I'm gonna have to get back in the queue
In front of you, in front of you
So what you gonna do?
I'm just as bad as you

    General CommentLuke Morley:

    "You would have to have been living under the sea or on another planet to have not noticed the explosion in ‘celebrity’ media over recent years. I know we’ve always had a fascination with the supposedly opulent lifestyles of the rich and famous but it’s now got so out of control that the press are having to invent new ‘celebs’ on a daily basis to satisfy a demand that they themselves created. This means literally anybody can claim the dubious mantle of celebrity, even Jade Goody! This song ponders the possibility that Andy Warhol’s prediction ‘everybody will be famous for fifteen minutes’ has come true."
