Years ago Rudy Guiliani’s fame was fading, fewer TV
appearances. Maybe why he jumped onto Trumps band
wagon… maybe his Titanic. He just might end up getting
indicted for not registering as foreign agent.

Maybe he should listen to David Bowie’s song Fame.

Fame makes a man take things over
Fame lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame puts you there where things are hollow (fame)
Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame.
That burns your change to keep you insane (fame)

Fame, (fame) what you like is in the limo
Fame, (fame) what you get is no tomorrow
Fame, (fame) what you need you have to borrow Fame
Fame, (fame) it's mine, it's mine, it's just To bind your time,
it drives you to crime (fame)

Is it any wonder I reject you first?

Yes I like the drum run in the tune too. Clean... not
cluttered up with a lot of cymbal trash.

I've always loved that song but I never really analyzed the lyrics.

Kim, I knew a guy, a friend, who went onto join a very famous band.
He left everybody behind, that eventually didn't work out for him
as most bands change musicians or fold up going their own ways.
He came back with his hat in his hand. All ended up accepted and
he came back and led the old band. He has since passed.

I was friends (he has since passed too) with the brother of a member
of Guns and Roses... almost the same story.

Fame.
