Everybody's a Star (Starmaker) I like it! It's such a fun song. The organ, the brass, the cowbell (woodblock?). Maybe I can do without the backing "gonna make you a star!" but then when it turns into "starmaker! gonna make you a star, starmaker!" I kinda love it. The vocal delivery and brass puts it back into Everybody's in Showbiz, but that compressed guitar riff screams mid/late 70s to me. Definitely hear the Do Ya in there, and I am only familiar with the ELO version. I can see how this thematically it almost seems like this is a sequel to that album, which seemed like it had it's origins as Lola Part 2. About the trials and tribulations of becoming a star... Dalton's bass breakdown is so funky and I love the claps and cowbell (woodblock?) there too. Dave's solo is ripping. What a different from the overall feel of the last album. As I've been going through this album more and more, I often find myself just shaking my head and laughing at some of these ideas, lines, and delivery. It's so campy and entertaining, like all guilty pleasures should be. It's not as bad as what the reviews suggest. Perhaps (definitely) the reviewers are just not bought in to where Ray is coming from, and take this stuff too seriously.
