"Hollywood Tonight" as written by Michael Joe Jackson, Bradley D. Buxer and Teddy Riley....
Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tan
In her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you,
May never ever have that chance again
That chance again babe

West bound Greyhound
To tinsel town
Just to pursue her movie star dreams
She's giving hot tricks to men
Just to get in
When she was taught that that's not clean
She's headed for the big time that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you,
May never ever have that chance again
That chance again babe

Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tan
In her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you,
May never ever have that chance again
That chance again babe

You know it baby
(West bound Greyhound)
(To tinsel town)
(Just to pursue her movie star dreams)

(West bound Greyhound)
(To tinsel town)
(Just to pursue her movie star dreams)

You know it baby
(West bound Greyhound)
(To tinsel town)
(Just to pursue her movie star dreams)

West bound Greyhound
To tinsel town
Just to pursue her movie star dreams

(West bound Greyhound)
(To tinsel town)
(Just to pursue her movie star dreams)

    General CommentDamn!!!!!!!!
    This is one catchy song.

    It makes me wanna dance and I can't stop singing:

    "She's going Hollywood
    She's going Hollywood tonight
    She's going Hollywood
    She's going Hollywood tonight"

    It might not be 100% up to Michaels usual standard, but its damn close.
    I think fans have been way too hard on the new album. It's still Michael Jackson, he wrote the songs and, yes... He does sing all the songs. There might me other people on backing vocals and the mixing could have been better, but the craftsmanship of the songs are Michaels work. Hollywood Tonight, Keep your head up, Monster, Breaking News, Behind the Mask and Much Too Soon are IMO all good. Some borderline great and some sown right great songs. Thats more than half the album, thats pretty good for a postmortem album.
