"Hollywood" as written by and Michael Steven/scott Buble....
Could you be a teenage idol
Could you be a movie star
When I turn on my TV
Will you smile and wave at me
Tellin' Oprah who you are is strange
So you want to be a rock star
With blue eyed bunny's in your bed
Well remember when you're rich that you sold yourself for this
You'll be famous 'cause you're dead

So don't go higher for desire
Put it in your head
Baby Hollywood is dead
You can find it in yourself

I don't want to take you dancing
When you're dancing with the world
Well you can flash your caviar and your million dollar car
I don't need that kind of girl
But you could be that next sensation
Or will you set the latest style
You don't need a catchy song
'Cause the kids will sing along
When you sell it with a smile

So don't go higher for desire
Put it in your head
Baby Hollywood is dead
You can find it in yourself

So don't fly higher, for your fire
Put it in your head
Baby Hollywood is dead
You can find it in yourself
Keep it on your head Hollywood is dead

Well you can do the mighty tango
You can strut your little thing
You can swing from vine to vine
While the kiddies wait in line
With the money in their hands

But if you get to California
Save a piece of gold for me
If it's the only thing you'll save
Then I'll bet you'll never wave when I watch you on TV

So don't go higher for desire
Put it in your head
Baby Hollywood is dead you can find it in yourself

So don't fly higher, for your fire
Put it in your head
Baby Hollywood is dead
You can find it in yourself

Keep on loving what is true and the world will come to you
You can find it in yourself
Love what is true and the world will come to you
You can find it in yourself

No no no no no
Keep it in your head, Hollywood is dead
Come, come Hollywood is dead babe woo hoo
Oh Hollywood is dead yeah yeah
Oh Hollywood is dead babe woo hoo
Keep on loving what is true and the world will come to you
Hollywood is dead, get it in your head, Hollywood is dead

    Song MeaningI believe that this song relates to many Californians, not to say that other cultures or people from different places can't relate to it. What I'm saying, is that this song represents the dream of hollywood handing you everything you could dream for. Yet it asks only for your soul in return.
    As said within the song lyrics, "when you're rich that you sold yourself for this", thus showing the meaning of people giving up everything and everyone for a shot at fame and fortune. Yet they don't realize the path that it will lead and how all of it is only a soft, velvet, fading illusion and the moment you touch it, it will dissolve at your fingertips.

    General CommentI'd like to add that where it says:
    "So you want to be a rock star
    With blue eyed bunnies in your bed
    Well remember when you're rich that you sold yourself for this, you'll be famous cause you're dead."
    I think he is referring to Kurt Cobain, who received most of his fame after he passed.
