Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Limelight's Gone

This song was created for Game of Bands round 108 : "People Lost in 2016"

Lyrics:

Snape killed Dumbledore
but time killed Snape
right from the start
we knew it wouldn't be great

Florence (Henderson) and Rob (Ford)
stood and looked around
well the kids and city are gone
let's get a party started in this town

i love you, but who are you?
all your life i never really knew
that i love you, what are we to do
the limelight's gone and so are you

Gene (Wilder) ain't so wild
now he's awfully calmer
teeing off and having drinks
with Arnold Palmer

John (Glenn) turned to David (Bowie)
and said look at that
the stars do look different
as a matter of fact

Anton (Yelchin) looked at Leonard (Cohen)
and said beam me up
Cohen looked at him
and said "wrong Leonard, little pup"

i love you, but who are you?
all your life i never really knew
that i love you, what are we to do
the limelight's gone and so are you

Charmian (Carr) said that the hills are alive
Morley (Safer) went "what a story"
60 minutes of that
would be anything but boring

(Muhammad) Ali knocked out men
to pay for his houses
But only (Artist formerly known as) Prince
could look good in blouses

Lemmy and Glenn (Frey)
standing side by side
what an awful relief
we're at the end of the ride

[outro]
George (Michael) and Carrie (Fisher)
were looking around
everybody's dying
but at least we're still... (WHAM!!)
[Exit]
