Lyrics
Everybody's a dreamer
Everybody's a star
Everybody's in movies
It doesn't matter who you are
There are stars in every city
In every house and on every street
And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Their names are written in concrete

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

Rudolph Valentino
Looks very much alive
And he looks up ladies' dresses
As they sadly pass him by
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi
'Cause he's liable to turn and bite
But stand close by Bette Davis
Because hers was such a lonely life

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

Everybody's a dreamer
Everybody's a star
And everybody's in showbiz
It doesn't matter who you are
And those who are successful
Be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along Hollywood Boulevard

I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

La la la la, la la la la la la la, la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la, la la
Oh, celluloid heroes never feel any pain
Oh, celluloid heroes never really die

I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

DEAR FESTIVIDDER! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING ME THIS WONDERFUL VID!!! <33333 "CELLULOID HEROES", OMG what an amazingly fitting song. Did you know I love The Kinks???? AAAAAH. It captures the themes of the movie so well, and I particularly love the way it's about how people we admire exist in our fantasies, and Andrea's realization that this image is not always true, that we have to imagine them complexly (sorry for the John Green quote there), AND YOU ADDED THE KISS WITH CYBIL, and the hair brushing and everything <333 Ack I wish I had all these thinky thoughts thought out but I suck at words and I'm very overwhelmed so just, thank you so much, vidder <3 <3 I can't wait to find out who you are!!
